The June 2006 meeting of the Just Desserts discussion group focused on a pair of mysteries by former Lincolnite Harley Jane Kozak.
Kozak, a film, tv and stage actress who grew up in Lincoln but now lives in California, burst onto the mystery scene with her premiere novel, Dating Dead Men in 2004, and followed up with a very successful sequel Dating is Murder in 2005. The first book won the Nebraska Book Award for Best Fiction, and also won a triumvirate of the national mystery awards: The Agatha Award, the Anthony Award and the Macavity Award (all for best first mystery novel).
You can see a profile of Kozak here on the BookGuide Web site: Nebraska Author Harley Jane Kozak. There’s also a short interview with Kozak here as well.
