This is a pleasant series of mysteries by Jo Dereske. Miss Zukas is a librarian in a small city in Washington state. As with any good mystery, the main enjoyment of the book is not finding out "who dun it" as the journey of getting there. Miss Zukas is an interesting person to know and she has an interesting cast of characters around her. The description of the city and the climate are also enjoyable.
I picked up one book and at first was not that enthralled by the character, but she grew on me enough that I read the next book and then two more. It does help to read these in order, but not strictly necessary. For anyone who wants a pleasant, enertaining easy reading mystery, I do recommend these.
