12Fine & Bitter Snow

A Fine and Bitter Snow by Dana Stabenow
(published 2002)

Yes, more Kate Shugak! I can’t get enough of this series. I read books 11 and 12 this past week, and thought I’d share a passage from #12 that appealed to the introvert in me:

The great thing about the moose and the grizzly and the wolf was that they had not been gifted by their creator with the power of speech. They couldn’t make conversation. The moose might kick your ass and the grizzly might rip it off and the wolf might eat it, but they wouldn’t talk you to death while they got on with the job.

What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!

    • I’m so in love with this series — which is kind of funny for me, because I don’t usually go for mysteries. The characters are so great, and I love the writing.
