The Blessing Way by Tony Hillerman, 294 pages

This is Tony Hillerman's 1st book in his long-running Leaphorn & Chee series.  I got mixed up and listened to book 2 before this one.  However, reading them out of order didn't ruin anything.

Hillerman originally published this book in 1970, but it did not seem dated.  Set in the four-corners area of the American Southwest, the series follows Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn of the Navajo Tribal Police and his cases.  In this outing a depressed university professor gets mixed up with a Navajo Witch during a summer research trip.

I don't know if our hot weather made me more in the mood for this or not, but I really enjoyed the story and am looking forward to getting book 3 started in a few weeks.
