As many of you know, not only do I love to read crime fiction, I love wildlife and the wide open spaces. A perfect day to me is my husband and I loading up the Jeep with food, drink, and cameras to head out on a trail to some much-less-traveled location where we can wander at will. When I can find crime fiction that lets me do the same thing, you have to know that I'm in heaven. I've always relied on Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon for some crime-solving wilderness wanderlust, but I'm here to say that there's a new woman in town: Pamela Beason's Summer Westin. Summer is a wildlife biologist who finds herself in some beautiful, remote areas where she takes care of the local wildlife and solves a mystery at the same time. The first book in the Summer Westin series, Endangered, made my Best of 2012 list, and if you stop by tomorrow you'll be able to see how the second book, Bear Bait, compares.
