Author Releases Second Book in Mystery Series

Bonnie Jo (Britzke) Moore has published Murder and the Arts, the second installment in her Mia Zielinski Northern Door Mystery series, set in Sister Bay.

It continues the story of Mia Zielinski, a gutsy polio survivor with a playful sense of humor and an uncanny ability to sense things. Six weeks have passed since Zielinski, while on vacation in Door County, helped local Sheriff Bill Byrne and his son stop a serial killer on the peninsula – a tale told in the first novel in the series, Murder Takes a Vacation

She returns home to Appleton and attempts to avoid all the paparazzi who are stalking her after the story gained national attention. Zielinski makes a permanent move to Sister Bay, where she hopes to live a quiet life, but she’s soon caught up in another mystery – this one involving the theft of four paintings from the studio of Knut Larsson.

At the age of four, author Moore survived the 1955 polio epidemic, which left her unable to walk, and she was a Wisconsin March of Dimes polio poster child. The character of Mia Zielinski is based on Moore’s life as a disabled person and her love of Door County. 

Copies of both books in the series are available by emailing the author at [email protected].
