Three Wyoming Mystery Authors

Since I just finished a good novel of suspense by C. J. Box (Three Weeks to Say Good-Bye), I thought I'd fill my readers in on the writings of C. J. and two more of my favorites who hide out north of the border (that's the Colorado/Wyoming border, of course).

Award winning author C. J. Box writes the Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett series as well as the two recent standalone suspense novels, Blue Heaven and Three Weeks to Say Good-bye. The latest Joe Pickett novel, Below Zero, was released in June 2009.

Craig Johnson has created an excellent series starring Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire. The latest book, The Dark Horse, was published in May 2009.

Cindy Keen Reynders writes the Lexie Lightfoot mysteries set in Moose Creek Junction, Wyoming. The Saucy Lucy Murders (2007) was followed by Paws-Itively Guilty (2008).

A scaled-down version of the Wyoming Book Festival will be held this year in Cheyenne on September 19th. These three authors and others will attend.

Both my husband and I love CJ. We keep up with his series, but I hadn't realized he'd done another stand-alone. I will definitely look for Three Weeks to Say Good-Bye.
