Luck at the library

About a week ago I found one of C.J. Box’s newest books on the shelf at the Fairfax Library.  Box’s protagonist, Joe Pickett, is a Wyoming game warden who survives his repeated bad luck with the help of common sense and good friends.  All of the Joe Pickett novels feature writing that makes me happy to realize that I still have half the book left.  Then the rest of the book flies by all too quickly.

A few late nights of reading and Box’s latest book was done.  How weird that I picked up a book by  Craig Johnson that features a main character who just happens to be a Wyoming sheriff. What is it about Wyoming?  Are my Montana roots calling to me?  Can’t say but the writing sure is good.  Pick one up and treat yourself to some spare language interspersed with tributes to western scenery.
