[bksvol-discuss] Miss Zukas--and OT re other books

Marilyn, The title would just be Death's Shadow. Miss
Zukas is a librarian who sleuths. I think the author's
last name is Dereske.

I read the first book on the recommendation of library
colleagues. I enjoyed the library part but I didn't
much care for Miss Zukas' personality. The series is
very popular, though.

On the other hand, on the recommendation of the same
people, I read the first Mrs. Pollifax book and really
enjoyed the book and Mrs. Pollifax. I'm reading those
in order--have read the second one--but lately I'm
engrossed in well-written romances that take place in
the mid-to-late 19th century and 18th-century.I stress
well-written because the three authors I'm "into"
write very well and have well-rounded characters.
Another's characters aren't quite as complex but the
books are enjoyable and she does write well. I've read
books from other authors in the genre that I don't
care for at all. smile
