This is book number . have always enjoy the books and the character of Kate since she's on her own on a homestead in Alaska with her dog and she knows how to take care of herself. In "Breakup" it's the end of winter and going into the beginning of spring when all the snow and ice starts melting and the area turns to slush. It's as if Stabenow read some of the hilarious Stephanie Plum novels and decided to try the same sort of humor with her Alaskan characters. So unlike most of these excellent books, "Breakup" contains little in the way of Alaskan cultural exploration. Humor is the driving force here.

Breakup (Kate Shugak Mystery/Dana Stabenow). Kate finds herself involved in a murder investigation after a body is found near her homestead and, through the guidance of her Aleut grandmother's spirit, she assumes the role of clan leader and takes on major responsibilities to help her people.

Locally, its called breakup, and its a messy time of year. Then, of course, theres the body in the woods. And up at the old mining town. Its certainly messy for Kate Shugak; between doing her taxes, being chased by grizzlies, and getting shot at by feuding families, she has to cope with an NTSB investigation that hits very close to home. And being Kate Shugak, somehow she cant leave well enough alone, and begins to tease apart a well-planned and surprising crime.

Dana Stabenow is the author of the bestselling Kate Shugak series, which includes Midnight Come Again, The Singing of the Dead, and Bad Blood, and the Liam Campbell series. She has won an Edgar Award and a Nero Award for books in the Kate Shugak series, and in 2007 she was named Alaska Artist of the Year in the Governor's Awards for the Arts and Humanities.

A geologic age before, the runoff from Alakan Glacier high up in the Quilak Mountains chewed through a granite ridge to form a narrow canyon fifteen miles long. ake exacerbated a fault in the ridge. Half of it cracked and slid off to the southwest. It left behind a V-shaped wedge between the confluence of two watercourses, which would one day be named Gruening River on the south side and Cataract Creek on the north. The tip of the vee pointed due west.

BREAKUP - VG+ Stabenow, Dana - 7th Kate Shugak. This was a non-stop, very funny read from the opening page. Kate Shugak has featured in six previous books, and fans probably know all the characters and react to them entirely differently from someone who dips into the series at such a late point.

During spring thaw in Alaska, what the locals call "breakup," a dead body is uncovered near Kate's home, and when a deadly bear attack raises suspicions against her, she finds herself drawn into the path of a murderer. Reprint.

It's been a while since I read the last book in the Kate Shugak series by Dana Stabenow. This is book number 7.I have always enjoy the books and the character of Kate since she's on her own on a homestead in Alaska with her dog and she knows how to take care of herself. In "Breakup" it's the end of winter and going into the beginning of spring when all the snow and ice starts melting and the area turns to slush. It makes getting around difficult and people are tired of being in for the cold winter. However, Kate, is trying to get her taxes done and into the tax folks on time. The job she wanted to finish doesn't quite get done because of other circumstances beyond her control.

In the time it takes to get from the beginning to the end of this book Kate has been chased by a bear, lost her means of transportation, been shot at by a feuding family and of course, comes upon a dead body in an old mining town. Par for the course, Kate is supposed to stay out of the investigation of the woman who was found at the mine, but Kate can't let it go. She does some investigating of her own and tries to settle things with the family who is having a few domestic problems so that the wife will at least untie her husband from the bed and put down the shotgun.

There are a lot of very humorous moments in the book as well as serious ones, but this is very good and well worth reading. Throughout the book people constantly mumble, "breakup!" because a lot of the problems start there.

One of my very favorite books of a favorite series. Dana Stabenow knows how to write a book in a series that can also be a good stand-alone story. Breakup has little more obvious humor than some of the others. As in her other books, there is also straight up great detective work, logical consequences, a heroine I wish I could be and a DOG (half wolf but a dog to fit Kate Shugak's personality and ethics). Alaska comes to life in her writings and you can feel as though you know these people and where they live. Read this alone if you want but I recommend starting with the first book of the series, A Cold Day for Murder, and working your way through every single book- slowly.

Enjoyed the book. Enjoy all the Kate Shugak Books so far. I unfortunately recieved some out of order so have been reading them as such. When I caught on an essential character is killed a few books after Breakup....I started skipping around that book. Now it's the last one I currently have. OOPS. Still have the last 4 books in the series to arrive. I buy used and hard copy when availabe. So looks like it's time to get on with the sad book afterall. Sooner or later life serves up the bad along with the good and so do the books. And at least this writer shovels both out in handfuls. She's really good and seems to be getting better. And love her fiction...and have no problem realizing it's fiction. She's so good some readers no doubt think otherwise. Say hi to Shitting Seagull the next time you see him will you? PS maybe Breakup was my all time favorite wild ride though. I mean really? I don't want to do a spoiler here...so biting my nails trying not to. The wild ride was amazing though. I could go for a few other books like that but then....no doubt it might just tire the author out trying to sustain that kind of action. We all need a calm rest now and again. I went and ordered the liam series too in anticipation of hearing the latest book out this year in the Shugak series is tied in with that character. So before reading the very last 2012 book...I'll read the other spin off so to speak so it perhaps all comes together out of both series into the last book.
If you haven't read this book and not the others yet...this one might just hook you in.

OMG - got hooked with this one that was free - I am now up to the 10th book.

The setting is what grabs you - the characters then reach in and grab you - pretty soon you too will be hooked. She is one tough cookie that is a joy to get to know through this series.

The only complaint I have at all about all of the books in the series has nothing to do with the author and EVERYTHING to do with people who do not know how to write a review - please ppl - I would like to read the book myself without knowing who dies, who sleeps with who, who the killer is or any of the above.Several idiotic reviewers totally ruined a book in this series for me - people if you want to write then download the free book on how to write a book for the Kindle and spare all of us PAYING customers your need to feel important!

A grizzly murder, bear attcks, wrecked cars, shoot outs, unrequited lust, and a D6 Caterpillar at work, to boot. Of course, there are the regular bush drunks and the family and tribal intrigue. Kate is my favorite character in the genre. I still can't figure how a seated 5 foot woman picks up a larger man and throws him, but I'm willing to believe. I'm 7 books in and dreading getting to the last one. Stabenow is a wonderful writer; almost makes me want to go back to Alaska, just not at Breakup

This was a departure for the Kate Shugak series. It's as if Stabenow read some of the hilarious Stephanie Plum novels and decided to try the same sort of humor with her Alaskan characters. So unlike most of these excellent books, "Breakup" contains little in the way of Alaskan cultural exploration. Humor is the driving force here. But many of the characters are poorly fleshed out, especially Mandy's Bostonian parents seem contrived. And Stabenow also extends that to by offering a characature of her Kate Shugak character. This version of Kate borders on a superhero with legendary powers. The book is still great fun, but halfway through the novel, you can tell that even Stabenow is getting tired of having Kate and various other characters exclaim "I hate breakup".
