From Barnes & NobleThe title of Breakup by Dana Stabenow refers to the April spring thaw in Alaska -- a season known for weird happenings. Kate Shugak, in her seventh adventure, is dreading both the thaw and doing her income taxes, with good reason. She is attacked by a bear shortly before a jet engine lands near her cabin, destroying her barn and her truck. While dealing with the crash investigators, Kate learns that a debris search team has discovered a man's body near her homestead. The bizarre string of events, which Kate attributes to breakup, continues with more bear attacks -- one of which leaves a female tourist dead -- the descent of a neighbor's Eastern Establishment parents for a visit, and yet another airplane mishap. Finally, the happenings become too unbelievable even for Kate and she is irresistibly drawn into the hunt for a cunning murderer.
