Last year, I checked out a book (from a MCPL branch, of course!) by Dana Stabenow. Dana has written a series of books featuring a recurring character named Kate Shugak. Kate has worked as a professional and private detective. I've read all of the books in the Kate Shugak series except the latest book (and I'm on hold for it through MCPL), and I have thoroughly enjoyed each one.
If you like reading mysteries with a female character solving crimes, I'd recommend this series to you. The author is a life-long resident of Alaska, and this shows up in the interesting details about Alaska found in each book. Another interesting item is that as you read the books, more details about Kate's childhood and teen years are revealed in each story. If you're looking for a new detective/crime series, this is one I'd recommend.
