My husband and I went to Montana and Wyoming for our vacation. We decided that we would like to listen to audiobooks that take place in that area to "fit the mood" and to help deal with the long drive ahead of us (sixteen hours the first day and ten the next.) We found a series of books by C. J. Box. He writes about Joe Pickett, a Wyoming fish and game warden, so we chose a few of them to listen to. Great choice! Pickett and his family are likable characters, and the books themselves were "page turner" mysteries.
We listened to Open Season, Savage Run, and Nowhere to Run. Pickett battles people trying to cover up the fact that a supposed extinct animal has been found, to overzealous ranchers versus "save the world" folks to mysterious mountain men. The only disadvantage to our choices is that there are evidently several books in between each of the ones we chose, and therefore, we missed out on the death of and/or introduction to a few characters. However, we liked them so much that we now have several others to listen to.
