This series (the Posadas County Mysteries) is truly a delight to read. The action takes place in a sparsely populated New Mexico county that abuts the Mexican border and is not very far from either Arizona or Texas. The main characters are well defined and fit the terrain & have traits that make you feel that they are someone that you would like to know.

This is a mystery, not a genealogy of Germans!
