Overview

It’s holiday season in Absaroka County and Sheriff Walt Longmire gets personal in this delightful collection of four short stories from New York Times–bestselling author Craig Johnson.



Full of Longmire’s dry wit and good heart, Christmas in Absaroka County is a holiday must-have for every Longmire and Craig Johnson fan, and it also includes the first chapter of The Cold Dish, the first novel in the Longmire Mystery Series.



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,” “Slick-Tongued Devil,” “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.

    Loved it!

    Enjoyed all four stories but liked Slick-Tongued Devil the best. Walt's range of emotions when he first sees his wife's obituary, then finds a man on his doorstep who claims he's spoken to her recently is at times heart-breaking and at times funny.

    Loved this collection of short stories from a author whose on my must-have list. His characters just pop off the page and make me wish Mr. Johnson was a much faster writer. I can't wait for the next one in his series.

    As good as expected!

    Anything from Craig is great, and here is another example of how great his writing is. Walt Longmire is that western type of hero you look forward to reading and this was no different. A great short story that is another great addition. Thanks Craig!

    Great Christmas stories

    I was a little disappointed to find out that these had been previously published Post-Its but I had actually only read the one story and the other stories were a seasonal treat for me. If you like the Longmire series, this is worth your time. My other complaint is that it a little too short. I also don't know why the "sneak peek" is of "Cold Comfort" but there it is.
