Journey with me as I continue down the detective novel themed summer path...
-By Leah Bonnema (Stand-Up Comic)
I've dedicated my July Crazytown posts to detective novels (Summer Readin' Had Me A Blast and Five Things I Expect From My Detective Novels) as they bring me almost an unfair amount of pleasure and enjoyment. My love affair continues here with mystery series that have been made into movies or television shows.
Longmire: I just discovered this series. It was originally on A&E and now Netflix is going to produce Season 4. (Thank You Netflix!!!!) I plowed through the first three seasons in so short a time that I am embarrassed to say. WOW. SO GOOD. Longmire is based on mystery novels by author Craig Johnson and takes place in Wyoming. The landscape is so incredible that the environment itself feels like one of the main characters. The story follows a sheriff, Walt Longmire, who goes back to work after the passing of his wife. Kate Sackoff (STARBUCK) plays one of the main characters as does Lou Diamond Phillips. I will say nothing more except that it is wonderful and WATCH IT.
