Hello everyone, here are our suggested daily recommended reads in both print and digital formats.
Todays’ daily Digital Catalog is a novella that is actually set at Christmas time in Wyoming – so you can read it and think cool thoughts!
The book is the 10th one in the Longmire series; however, it can be read and enjoyed even if you’ve never read a previous book in the Longmire series. And if you like World War II era aircraft and salt-of-the-Earth retired sheriffs than this book is for you!
Spirit of Steamboat by Craig Johnson:
A Christmas novella for fans of the hit drama series LONGMIRE now on Netflix and the New York Times–bestselling series
Sheriff Walt Longmire is in his office reading A Christmas Carol when he is interrupted by a ghost of Christmas past: a young woman with a hairline scar and more than a few questions about his predecessor, Lucian Connally. With his daughter Cady and undersherrif Moretti otherwise engaged, Walt’s on his own this Christmas Eve, so he agrees to help her.
At the Durant Home for Assisted Living, Lucian is several tumblers into his Pappy Van Winkle’s and swears he’s never clapped eyes on the woman before. Disappointed, she whispers “Steamboat” and begins a story that takes them all back to Christmas Eve 1988—a story that will thrill and delight the bestselling series’ devoted fans.

And in following the idea that we all think cool thoughts during this long hot summer in the Southern Tier our suggested print read for today is set in Alaska! Deadly Fate, too, is a book in a series — the 19th book in Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series.
Deadly Fate by Heather Graham:
When Clara Avery, an entertainer working on the Fate, an Alaskan cruise ship, goes to nearby Bear Island, she comes across a scene of bloody mayhem. She also comes across Thor Erikson, who will soon be a member of the FBI’s elite paranormal unit, the Krewe of Hunters.
Thor’s been sent from the Alaska field office to investigate several grotesque killings, with the dead posed to resemble the victims of notorious murderers. The prime suspect is a serial killer Thor once put behind bars. The man escaped from a prison in the Midwest, and all the evidence says he was headed to Alaska…
Thor and Clara share an unusual skill: the ability to communicate with the dead. Their growing love—and their contact with the ghosts of the victims—brings them together to solve the case…and prevent a deadly fate of their own!
