Bill Crider recommends

Nights of the Red Moon (2010)
Milton T Burton
"Milton Burton writes about East Texas with wit, spice, and insight.  His Sequoya County sheriff, Bo Handel, has a shrewd mind to go along with his fancy pistol.  He's the kind of man Sheriff Dan Rhodes would share a Dr Pepper with any day."

A Killing At Cotton Hill (2013)
(Samuel Craddock Mysteries, book 1)
Terry Shames
"Readers are going to love[Samuel Craddock] and they'll want to visit him and Jarrett Creek, Texas, often."
