In the twelfth and concluding Miss Zukas mystery, Chief of Police Wayne Gallant has finally popped the question to Miss Helma Zukas, librarian par excellence. But before Bellehaven, Washington can rejoice in the glad tidings, Helma's mother and Aunt Em are robbed and the alleged robber lies dead - or does he? Helma and her artist friend Ruth navigate through dangerous waters, including Helma's mother's wedding schemes, Ms. Moon's library secrets, and picketing authors, to discover the truth and recover the stolen items, especially Aunt Em's mysterious Lithuanian carving.
