Author Spotlight: CJ Box
Sometimes I believe I'm a real country girl at heart. I love a good western. Heck I love a bad western. There is something about watching old western shows like Gunsmoke, Have Gun Will Travel, and Bonanza among a myriad of others I indulge in that just satisfies my soul.
Weird. Recently in my scouting for mystery books to read (which has became an uncontrollable obsession... send for help) I came across CJ Box. And to my naive surprise I was like 'Oh My God...A Western Mystery Series! How perfect!'
Mind you, I have not started reading the series personally, due to prior books that I'm reading that need to meet their conclusions before I start with another, but just know I've purchased the first two books in the series already and they are on the ready line. CJ Box's latest 'Dark Sky' will come out in March 2021, but I have a lot to read before I get to that one.
For now here's a little bit more about my Author Spotlight this week: CJ Box!
