  1. This is the eighth book in the Chief Inspector Gamache series and is described on the back cover as "the most outstanding novel yet from international bestselling phenomenon Louise Penny". I am not sure that I would describe it as the best but it is certainly well up there! Like The Brutal Telling and Bury Your Dead I just could not put this book down. Like a few of the other books in the series so far this book is not set in the village of Three Pines but unlike any of the novels so far no characters from the village appear in this book. The only regular characters to appear
  2. This is the third in the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series and once again it is mainly set in the small Quebec village of Three Pines. Many of the usual characters appear and are becoming more and more familiar. The reader is made aware of the thoughts and feelings of many of the characters. Once again the foibles of human nature play as much a part in the content of the book as the details of the crime. In this book however issues beyond the crime itself play a part and details of the Inspector's earlier career emerge. The crime itself happens at a seance in an old house on
  3. This is the seventh novel by Louise Penny featuring Chief Inspector Gamache and his team. Once again this story is set in the idyllic village of Three Pines in Quebec. Many of the characters who appear in previous books make appearances in this story too and the reader watches as their lives develop as much as they read about the crime which forms the central part of the book. A women is found in a flower bed in the garden of two of the residents of Three Pines. Her eyes are wide open and her neck has been broken. Her death is a complete mystery as is the women herself and her r
  4. Well I thought that the last in the Chief Inspector Gamache series, The Brutal Telling, was good but I think that this book may be even better! I was gripped until the very end. It actually tells three stories regarding three different crimes. One is the continuation of the story told in the previous book and is investigated by Gamache's second in command Inspector Beauvoir who narrates this part of the book. The second concerns a crime that has happened in the recent past and the main part of the story is told by Gamache replaying a conversation over in his mind. The third i
  5. This is the fifth book in The Inspector Gamache series and in my opinion by far and away the best. Unlike previous novels in this series the crime itself was very believable and far darker than I have come to expect. This novel takes the reader back to Three Pines following a different setting in the previous book and the usual group of villagers reappear. Both the members of Gamache's team and many of the villagers are becoming like old friends and story lines loosely run from book to book which I really like. When a dead body is discovered in the village bistro the villagers a
  6. This is the fourth in the Inspector Gamache series and is the first of the series in which the greatest part of the action takes place away from Three Pines. The wealthy Finney family get together each year at The Manoir Bellchasse, an exclusive hotel set in The Canadian Wilderness, to pay tribute to their late father. During their stay each year old secrets and bitter rivalries have a habit of resurfacing and this year's get together is to prove no different from previous year's! When a massive thunder storm hits the hotel following a heat wave this year proves to be a little different. Af
  7. This is the second book in the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series and once again is set in the Quebec village of Three Pines. Many of the characters who appeared in the first book also appear in this one, both amongst the villagers and the Inspector's team. Once again the book is as much about the characters involved and human nature in general as it is about any crime. Gamache himself is really beginning to grow on me as are many of the other characters and they are beginning to feel a little like old friends. A series like this is just great for me as I love character driven books and t
  8. I finished this book yesterday having taken a few weeks to read it due to time restraints. I believe it to be the first in a series of books describing the cases of a Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and is based in Quebec. I was drawn to the book partly because I have enjoyed other crime series and partly because I was interested in the fact that it was based in Quebec. Other members of BGO have also stated that they have enjoyed books from the series. I found the book very easy to read and I am sure that if I had had the time I would have polished the book off pretty quickly. There was
  9. These books were recommended to me by Momac, for which she has my sincere thanks and eternal gratitude as they have given me great pleasure, enjoyment and welcome relaxation. Also, an addiction to the writing of Louise Penny. The quiet village of Three Pines in rural Quebec has an interesting assortment of inhabitants including a poet, two artists, an antiques collector and a psychologist turned bookshop owner who meet in each other’s homes or the friendly local bistro to socialise, exchange gossip and enjoy good food. Strangely, for such a pleasant restful village,Three Pines does tend
