A Good Read
Louise Penny is a top-notch author of mysteries.
This book carries on with the series and is an
excellent read and leaves me looking forward to
continuing on with the adventures of Armand Gamache. Love the setting in a small town in Canada with all the characters one comes to feel a close friendship with.

The whole series is amazing ....
This series is by no means all fictionalized sweetness & light, there is a strong streak of realism combined with likeable (some loveable) but humany flawed characters. Once started difficult to put down ...
Publishers Weekly, 2007-03-12 When sadistic socialite CC de Poitiers is fatally electrocuted at a Christmas curling competition in the tiny Quebecois village of Three Pines, only the arcane method of the murder is a surprise in Penny's artful but overwritten sophomore effort (after her highly praised 2006 debut, Still Life). CC had cobbled together a spiritual guidance business based on eliminating emotion, but the feelings she inspired in others were anything but serene. Everyone around the cartoonish victim-from a daughter cowed by lifelong abuse to the local spiritual teacher whose business she threatens to ruin-has a motive, and the crime also links to a vagrant's recent murder as well as to the pasts of several beloved village residents. The calm but quirky Chief Insp. Armand Gamache, who arrives in Three Pines from Montreal to head the investigation, is appealing as the series' focus. Though Penny gorgeously evokes the smalltown Christmas mood, the novel is oddly steeped in holiday atmosphere for a May release, and the plot's dependence on lengthy backstory slows the momentum.
