A Deeper Sleep

A Deeper Sleep (Kate Shugak, #15)A Deeper Sleep by Dana Stabenow

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of the things I love about Dana Stabenow’s Kate Shugak series is the ambiguity some of the characters occasionally feel about their jobs. In A Deeper Sleep, this ambiguity is on full display and Stabenow is at her best writing about the murder of a known bad guy and how the community as well ask Kate and Trooper Jim Chopin react. This is so well done and Bernadette Dunne reads it so compellingly that I listened to the whole thing in just a couple of days. I had the book on Overdrive on my phone while I ran errands and did chores around the house. Such a good book. If you haven’t ever read this series, I highly recommend you give it a try.

Kindness Goes Unpunished

Kindness Goes Unpunished (Walt Longmire, #3)Kindness Goes Unpunished by Craig Johnson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

At first, I was a bit put off that this Longmire book took place in Philadelphia instead of Wyoming, but I quickly got over it. This one is pretty rough though. Walt takes what seems like a lot of abuse through this book, worse than usual. Perhaps harder for me to read was the subplot about Cady’s brain injury. Nonetheless, this is still a Longmire book with Henry, Dog, and eventually even Vic (and the whole Moretti family) being involved. Johnson has a tendency to both engage in stereotyping and turn it on it’s head. This isn’t my favorite of the three Longmire books I’ve read, but it was still very engrossing and enjoyable. Definitely worth a read.
