Dana Stabenow is one of my favorite authors and Breakup is my favorite book of her Kate Shugak series. This book is so funny right from the start I've had tears in my eyes. Just imagine beginning your day with a jetplane dropping its engine right behind your house! Breakup in Alaska, everyone goes crazy... bears, people -- a good day in Alaska at spring breakup apparently is one where nobody gets shot! There is ample opportunity for this to happen. Stabenow has a wonderful way of telling a story, well worth reading all her books but for a laugh out loud, try breakup! This is a murder mystery, but hilarious.
