"His hair has grown through his long underwear."

"Probably more than we needed to know, Doc."

Sharon, be sure to start at the beginning. The characters really evolve and take shape in each subsequent book.  I really think that each new book is better than the last.  Let us know what you think!!

I have the first one (Served Cold?) reserved at the library to pick up today, and it looks like they have a few more in the series there, so all is good.

I have liked them all....this one is great! The one where he was out of Wyoming and went to Philadelphia, was it the third one? That was my least favorite and even that was still good. LOL

I finished The Cold Dish, which was pretty good.  I really didn't see the end coming.  My library had the next three, so I guess it's a good thing I got my yard work done last weekend!

When I search ALL BOOKS for Craig Johnson, Craig E. Johson, Craig A. Johnson, I get odd lists of 10-12 items, nothing like a series, nothing I see mentioned except The Cold Dish. ???

I got to see Craig Johnson at at book signing in Denver last evening.  What a funny and personable man he is!  Absolutely delightful!  If you ever get the chance to meet him, you should. :)

What LeeAnne leaves unanswered is this: why can't I find any of these "series" or very much of anything else when I search "all books?"

Using the browser and making sure the setting is "All Books", I can find all of Craig Johnson's titles when I just enter his name in the author field and leave everything else blank.  If I put a title in along with the author I get various editions of that title only.  No problems.  I'm not sure what's going on on your end, John.

LeeAnne, thanks for mentioning the series, I am enjoying the tongue-in-cheek humor :-)
