I work in a library. I have sat in the breakroom reading one of the Miss Zukas books thinking all right who around here is secretly writing these.

I love it a book just for us. That is what I thought when I read the first Zukas book. I am always reading mystery books about book people. They have had book dealrs, collectors, writers, and now a librarian. Isn't that great. She is great also. Will her and the chief get married ?

I'm not sure Miss Zukas is ready to share her life with a man. Let's see how she does with Boy Cat Zukas first.

I love the Miss Zukas mysteries; just finished all of them and eagerly awaiting the latest. I am getting a little frustrated over the "romance" of Miss Zukas and the Chief. It could progress just a wee bit quicker!

I have recently discovered Miss Zukas, and love her! I also, would like to see her "romance" with the Chief go forward. She is kind of refreshing. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the books!

Love Miss Zukas...Keep them comming! I hate to start the one I have, 'cause then I'll have it finished and I'll have too long a wait for the next one

I love the Miss Zukas books - would like to see the romance with the Chief move along. Miss Zukas' clock is ticking!

Just finished all the Miss Zukas mysteries. My question is, when is the next one coming out?

Alice Moore - 05:47pm May 17, 2001 PST(#20 of 34)

I'm puzzled-I love the Miss Zukas mysteries and have been reading them in order, however one of the books contained an advertisement for a Miss Zukas mystery soon to be available entitled Death Overdue. It seems as if it should have been published prior to the most recent(...Shelves the Evidence) I don't want to miss out on a volume, does anyone know if the book was published or was the original title changed?? The bookstores are no help.

I love the Miss Zukas mysteries. My coworkers and I have read all the books in the series and eagerly await each new book. When is the next one coming out?

janice wegener - 05:48am May 8, 2002 PST(#22 of 34)

when is your latest book being released?

Kathleen Riley - 10:02am Sep 9, 2002 PST(#23 of 34)

I am anxious for another Helma & Ruth book. And I think maybe Helma should stick with Boy Cat. I'm not too sure about Wayne! I'm a librarian too and my daughter is in grad school at Western Washington. Should I move out and be Helma's neighbor?! Katy riley
