When we lived in Montreal in the 70's, we didn't fully appreciate the beauty of Quebec. We didn't understand the cultural and historical significance of the people and places we were around. Now, after reading her books, being reintroduced to that area and feeling such warm and fuzzy closeness to her characters, memories are no longer as hazy. She is an exceptional writer and Cosham is magnificent!! Thanks for introducing her to me, Audible!
i have listened to all her books! if you like detective stories you will like louise penny. she doesn't write them fast enough for me!
I actually bought this one because I couldn't wait for my two monthly credits. I am enjoying these characters very much and I love the town, I want to live in Three Pines.
Cranky old Ruth had me laughing out loud and the other poet, oh my! the poor thing.
You should definitely read these in order as the subplots very subtle and elegant.
I'm going to have to order these in paper versions, as I have with a few other authors I discovered on Audible. I enjoy them that much!
I really did not care for this book..it was very wordy, winded! And too many characters with convuluted names...I got lost a lot and had to constantly rewind.
I love the Inspector Gamache series: well written, deep, complex but still loveably cozy. The first two mysteries were excellebt but the story line on this one fell apart a little for me. Looking forward to starting the next book!
This series continues to be marvelous. Louise Penny is a wonderful storyteller. Her characters are richly drawn, as is the scene she sets. And Ralph Cosham's performance, as always, is pitch-perfect!
This story is a trap. A good trap. After meeting Mrs. Penny at the Northshire book store in Vermont, I read a later book in the series to decide if I liked her stories. Now I have started from the beginning and continue to be entertained with this, her third .
The variety of characters and their complexity keeps you on your toes with interest and wonder. Wonder about how they are and how they fit into the scene and the mystery.
I always start slowly reading, a chapter or two at a time. Then I cannot put the book down at the end.
