Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A diligent Dewey decimalist, Miss Wilhelmina Zukas believes in doing everything by the book. And if that means keeping the library open during the most blinding blizzard Bellehaven has ever experienced, so be it! But something more sinister than big snow transpires outside her window. While inspecting the site he's generously set aside for the town's new library, local billionaire Franklin Harrington is inexplicably blown to bits!

Since the surviving Harringtons are more inclined to build pricy condos on the designated land, Helma—under strict orders from her boss, library despot May Apple Moon—sets out with her offbeat friend Ruth to convince the dead philanthropist's dysfunctional clan to honor Franklin's wishes. But delving too deeply into Harrington affairs could prove fatal—because a murderer may be hanging off the family tree. Then again, Miss Zukas has never been one to ignore a juicy mystery . . . especially when there are skeletons in the closet that could use a good rattling.

Synopsis:

At last, construction begins on a new library for Bellehaven, a gift of Franklin Harrington, scion of old Bellehaven money, and one of the locally famous Harrington triplets. But when a freak snowstorm hits, Bellehaven is brought to its knees. Not so Miss Helma Zukas who is at her post, dispensing library information, overseeing wayward employees, and soothing a busload of stranded gamblers.

Suddenly, an explosion rocks the snowy day, destroying the library site, killing the benefactor and a penny–pinching city finance czar.

The snow melts but not trouble. Shockingly, Ms. Moon thrusts the new library project onto Helma. And Helma soon discovers why, uncovering secrets and shady dealings from start to finish – secrets in the library, in the City, and in the Harrington family – secrets worth killing for.

Synopsis:

Inimitable librarian/sleuth Wilhelmina Zukas returns to flirt with Police Chief Wayne Gallant and to solve the murder of local billionaire Franklin Harrington, who had planned to build a new library in Bellehaven. Original.
