    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    Dublin Murder Squad


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Broken Harbor?

    I don't want to give away anything!


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hogan – was your favorite?

    Scorcher


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No - nothing extreme, but I thought the portrayal of characters with mental illnesses, and the effect that has on their families, was very well done.


    Any additional comments?

    I appreciate the fact that, from what I can tell, the writing has not been modified for American audiences. I gather the language is authentic, and I find it really interesting to learn what expressions we have in common ("24/7"), and to figure out some of the Irish expressions mean ("Fair play to ya")

    No outsiders are ever admitted to the monastery of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups, hidden deep in the wilderness of Quebec, where two dozen cloistered monks live in peace and prayer. They grow vegetables, they tend chickens, they make chocolate. And they sing. Ironically, for a community that has taken a vow of silence, the monks have become world-famous for their glorious voices, raised in ancient chants whose effect on both singer and listener is so profound it is known as “the beautiful mystery.”

    Sparkly says: "Engaging, entertaining, and heartbreaking."
    "Terrific!!"

    Would you listen to The Beautiful Mystery again? Why?

    Probably not - but I don't' think I've ever listened to a mystery more than once


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Absolutely


    Which character – as performed by Ralph Cosham – was your favorite?

    Gamache, of course.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found the history of Gregorian chants fascinating (I am assuming that the author did her homework).


    Any additional comments?

    If I had it to do over again, I would have started with the first book of the series and read them sequentially. Characters develop from one book to the next.
