-- New York Times Full of Longmire's dry wit and good heart, Christmas in Absaroka County Readers glimpse a softer side of Sheriff Walt Longmire as he grapples with the death of his wife, Martha, and his sometimes turbulent but ever-loving relationship with his daughter, Cady. In these four stories--"Ministerial Aid, z"Slick-Tongued Devil, z"Toys for Tots, "and "Unbalanced ("three of which have been sent to Johnson's fans over the years in the author's "Post-it "e-mails)--Walt is alternately at his best and his worst. He helps a somewhat delusional elderly victim of domestic abuse while sporting a bathrobe and a mean hangover on New Year's Day. He's sidelined by grief when his wife's obituary reappears in the paper and there's an unexpected knock on his door two days before Christmas. He strives to help even those who don't want it when he picks up a young female hitchhiker, and he's forced into some last-minute Christmas shopping by the Greatest Legal Mind of Our Time, during which he might just end up saving a young Navy chaplain's Christmas.It's holiday season in Absaroka County and Sheriff Walt Longmire gets personal in this delightful collection of four short stories. Also includes the first chapter of The Cold Dish, the first novel in the Walt Longmire mystery series.… (mer)

A very good set of short stories about Sheriff Walt and his environs. Interesting glimpses of problem times and quirky situations. Each a quick read but very enjoyable. ( )

Christmas in Absaroka County is a collection of four short stories featuring Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire and his daughter, Cady. The stories are bittersweet, reflecting a sadness and loneliness that too many people experience during the holiday season. The first story is set shortly after Walt's wife's death, when the daily routines of life (like personal hygiene and dressing) are more than Walt can manage in his grief. The second story also gives readers another glimpse of Walt's deceased wife, Martha. Troubled souls come to Walt for help because they see in him a fellow wounded spirit. Recommended for all series fans. ( )

Interwoven through these short stories are what makes Longmire such a beloved Western sheriff: his dedication to family and his willingness to comprehend his fellow man. Christmas is joyful and sorrowful for many, including Sheriff Longmire. Each of these short gems give us more insight into Walt's complex character as a human being, and reflects light upon our own holiday spirit. These are very well written without sappiness, heartfelt, and true to the spirit of Christmas. ( )

These four short stories were quite short, but very well done. I enjoyed catching up on a few vignettes from Walt's life and visiting with the characters I like so much. ( )

These short stories about Sheriff Walt Longmire, each set at Christmastime in Absaroka County, Wyoming, are perfect Christmas reading for mystery lovers. There is just enough crime to keep things interesting, but the focus is on the essential goodness of Walt Longmire as Craig Johnson has created him. These stories leave you feeling hope for humanity -- which is just what a Christmas story should do. Highly recommended. ( )

Driving south on I-25, I kept sneaking glances through my half-closed eyes in hopes of seeing those first, dull, yellow rays of sunup crawling from the horizon.
