The discovery of a dead body in the woods on Thanksgiving Weekend brings Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his colleagues from the Surete du Quebec to a small village in the Eastern Townships. Gamache cannot understand why anyone would want to deliberately kill well-loved artist Jane Neal, especially any of the residents of Three Pines - a place so free from crime it doesn't even have its own police force. But Gamache knows that evil is lurking somewhere behind the white picket fences and that, if he watches closely enough, Three Pines will start to give up its dark secrets...Hide synopsis

Still Life is the first in a series of mysteries with Chief
Inspector Armand Gamache. Loved it. I read A Beautiful Mystery first not knowing there was a series.
So now I am starting from the beginning. Still Life
sets the stage of the characters in Three Pines who
will be integrated in future adventures in this small town in Canada.
Still Life by Louise Penny is the first of a series called "Three Pines". The writing is excellent, the poetry inclusions are compelling, and various side thoughts the author includes are thought provoking. I'm recommending these to all my mystery-loving friends.
Having created a very engaging and believable world of a Quebec small town the author goes on to provide a tale threaded with analyzing the foibles of our human condition. A marvelous and compelling read that brings cause for reflection on our own lives while a murder mystery gets solved.
