I found her writing wonderful - easy to follow and her writing transported you into the story. Will add her to my list of must reads. I am going to read the rest of the series now.

Anna Pigeon, the District Park Ranger for the Natchez Trace Parkway, Mississippi, is not having an easy time of it. She¿s in a secret relationship with a married man Paul Davidson, the sheriff of Claiborne. One of her workers is jealous of her because she got the job he thought he was entitled to while another employee refuses any overtures of friendship because of the race issue.

When a murder occurs in her jurisdiction, she immerses herself in the investigation, hoping it will help her forget her deeper problems. A dead man is found in bed in Mt. Locust, a former plantation now located on the Natchez Trace. This investigation is Anna¿s most dangerous one to date as she is attacked by vicious poachers and her car is totaled by a traveler who thinks she is in it at the time. By the time this case is solved, Anna is eager to get back to solving her personal and professional problems.

Nevada Barr is one of the few mystery writers today who turns out a constantly well-written and complex who-done-it that manages to pull the reader into the story. In HUNTING SEASON, the audience is treated to a softer Anna, one who is in love and knows she can get hurt but is willing to take the risk. Her curiosity takes her into her most deadly adventure yet leaving readers mesmerized by the risks she takes in pursuit of the truth.

Nevada Barr has done a masterful job of blending past and present to create a fast-paced and interesting plot. The rich history of the Natchez Trace and the South in general provided the perfect setting to a mystery that will surely captivate readers, most especially those that live in the South and understand its unique ways. Great job, Ms. Barr!!! Stephanie Clanahan

Nevada Barr's characters are always well-developed. Anna and her sister feel like old friends. The details about our country's National Park systems are well-researched and provide a great overview. This series is one of murder mysteries, so you might not enjoy them if you enjoy romances. I definitely want to read more of this series.

This addition to the Anna Pigeon mysteries escapes the flaw of most in the series: a contrived ending that seems hardly believable. The end of Hunting Season makes ample sense as a conclusion to the plot. Unfortunately, the reader puts the main pieces of the puzzle together about 1/3 of the way through the novel and then finds herself wondering why Anna can't do the same. The further development of Anna Pigeon's character, however, makes the book well worth reading.

I have read two Nevada Barr books and have been impressed and pleased with both. This was an excellent book with an intriguing plot, realistic characters and it went along at a good pace. I love the main character, Anna Pigeon, because she is NOT perfect. She is real. My only issue with Ms. Barr is that I wish she wouldn't spent *quite* so much time describing the weather and the environment. ...But, with her main character being a park ranger, I guess that's what we get. I must highly recommend this book.

Anna Pigeon is back at her job as ranger on the Natchez Trace Parkway, and it isn't long before a body turns up. And following fast on that, she herself is in mortal peril. Anna is a flawed woman, which makes her particularly appealing. She has urges to kill a difficult subordinate, and is conflicted about her love affair with the still-married local sheriff. Her sour comments on many situations and individuals are often hilarious, rivaling those of S.Grafton's Kinsey Milhone. Best of all, when it comes to the crunch, Anna can take care of herself. Thanks to Nevada Barr's handling of plot and character, Anna's rescue from harrowing situations is rarely if ever dependent on a man rushing in. Bless Ms. Barr for not resorting to the 'damsel in distress' scenario so popular with other writers.

Sapphirestar walks quietly beside Rosepetal as she leads the way towards the training outcrop. It was safest place she could think of to play with Rosepetal that was also full of interesting things to do. Flightpath's new prophecy weighs heavily on her mind, but she wouldn't ever break a promise to Rosepetal. "You know, if you're sneaky enough, you might be able to catch one of the lizards that sunbathe on the rocks," Sapphirestar meows quietly, pointing to the scattered creatures that sit in perfect position and unwavering silence on the warm rocks that mark the training outcrop. To demonstrate, Sapphirestar stalks on silent paws behind a lizard and in the blink of an eye slams her paw down on the lizards tail. The scaly reptile flails about in a panic but she's too fast. "See?" Sapphirestar purrs to her friend.

Once outside of camp if a cat travels east they will soon spot a rocky outcrop jutting out of the landscape. A thin layer of grasses grows here and large boulders provide cover or launching points for those practicing their attacks. These will be useful as this is the new training area for apprentices and their mentors. Situated close to the Rainclan and Sandclan borders, it provides a good view of the surrounding land and is a relatively safe place for learning cats. There is also some prey in this area. Jackrabbits, shrews, and ground squirrels can all be found darting between the rocks while sparrows and ravens often search the ground for insects or seeds. Predators rarely visit but when they do the openness of this place does not allow for an easy escape. Aerial hunters such as hawks or eagles are the greatest threat. Overall this outcrop provides a nice area for apprentices to learn the skills of hunting and fighting that are necessary for becoming a warrior. ~ The Training Outcrop, Sapphirestar
