    A fitting goodbye

    It is with great sorrow that I read the final chapter in the Miss Zukas series. It is well written and wraps up several story lines. It left me wanting more.

    Long-awaited series finale

    This final Miss Zukas mystery was greatly anticipated and largely delivers. I was delighted that the storyline focused the reader's attention on Helma's family and friendships. My only disappointment was that the story felt too brief and rushed at the end. This could be due to my reluctance to bid "Farewell, Miss Zukas."

    Farewell, Miss Zukas - Great end to a wonderful series!

    This was an excellent "cozy," easily read in one sitting. In fact, it was hard to put down once you started it. There were parallel story threads in this book, one being Helma Zukas's recent engagement with the police chief and the other being Helma trying to help figure out what happened when a thief died stealing the box that her aunt's father had carved out of Lithuanian wood. Did her aunt kill the thief? Was what so valuable in the now missing box? How can she keep her mother from overtaking the wedding plans while solving these and other problems?

    Miss Zukas is a wonderful person to get to meet, growing more personable with each of the books. I strongly recommend you read all 12 of the books in this series. The author does a marvelous job in creating the main and supporting characters, from Helma to her artist friend Ruth, Chief Gallant, Boy Cat Zukas, and others. As the series progresses, Helma Zukas, becomes so much more than just the stereotype of a librarian. Her "thin as a silver dime" voice will live on, even as the series comes to a bittersweet end with everyone promising to live "happily ever after."

    Jo Dereske wrapped up multiple story lines in this series finale with grace and sweetness. I was sorry to bid Miss Zukas farewell.
