Every summer, we reach out to book sellers in the state to get their choices for good books by Colorado authors and/or ones with Western themes. This year, we checked in with Deidre Appelhans, co-owner of The Read Queen Bookstore and Cafe in Lafayette and Jeanne Costello, general manager and book buyer at Maria's Bookshop in Durango.
Here are Deidre's picks:
"The Cape Doctor" by E.J. Levy

FOR KIDS: "Ham Helsing #1: Vampire Hunter" by Rich Moyer
Here are Jeanne's picks:
