  1. Based on the information you have in this post, a series you might like: C. J. Box the Joe Pickett series. Joe Pickett is a Wyoming game warden who, with the shot of a rifle, is thrust into a race to save not only an endangered species, but to unravel a mystery that threatens the life and the family he loves. C.J. Box is the author of ten Joe Pickett novels and two stand- alones, and has won the Edgar, Anthony, Macavity, Gumshoe, and Barry awards, as well as the French Prix Calibre .38. He lives outside Cheyenne, Wyoming, with his family.

  2. Karen – Thank you for another series 🙂 I have heard about C.J. Box before, and I have one of his books on my shelf, but for some reason I missed him on this list. Thanks again for the referral!!
