The story was a nice read. However, unfortunately, the author chose to add a character about midway through the story that could not speak without using sexual and other course language. As a result, I can not recommend this book.
Okay, I admit it. If Helma hadn’t been a librarian, I probably would be more willing to continue in this series. I couldn’t get over the fact that—whether she meant to or not—Dereske seems to have played into the typical stereotype for a librarian. Helma has a tidy bun, glasses, fussy mannerisms, and no-nonsense outfits in drab colors. I thought she was elderly until the author let it slip she’s only in her 30s. Call it childish, but I have no interest in the further adventures of Miss Z.
The first in this series featuring librarian Helma Zukas. Her stereotypic uptightness is counterbalanced by her larger than life friend, Ruth, who is an artist. Good storyline, character development and interesting plot twist.
