    another wonderful entry in the Insp Gamache series

    I’ve read every book in Louise Penny’s Armand Gamache/Three Pines series, and have enjoyed each and every one. So I was happy to receive an ARC of this title from the publisher/Edelweiss, in exchange for my honest review, and thus be able to get a “dose” of Three Pines a little early this year. And I really enjoyed this title, just like all of the previous ones, reading and finishing it during a couple of plane flights across the US and then back home. As usual, Penny’s writing is crisp and clear, she has a sure sense of human nature which helps her create believable characters, the plot threads are solid and weave together nicely, and Three Pines remains a place I very much wish I could visit! As I think back over the series, each book seems to have had a slightly different emphasis, often something that is timely. In this book, without giving away too much, one of the main plotlines revolves around possible sexual/spousal abuse, even though the characters most directly involved have probably never heard of the “Me Too” movement. Other threads are also timely, including manifestations of the corruption that can come with political power, which have been developing over the last several books; some issues with cyber-bullying; and some severe weather that adds urgency to everything else that is going on. I’m not sure whether Penny means to directly reference climate change with this last one, but it certainly fits. And, the familiar characters in Three Pines are still there, although Gamache’s daughter and son-in-law are getting ready to move out of the country, so there is plenty going on. And throughout it all, Gamache remains his own steady, inimitable and awesome self. One word of advice I would offer is that if this is going to be your first Gamache/Three Pines title, you might consider reading the series in order instead. I think there is enough background provided so you could enjoy the book as a stand-alone, but I think there are enough continuing story arcs and character development that you’ll enjoy it much more if you’ve read several, if not all, of the titles that come before. Finally, please note that I give very very few five star rankings, maybe only one in ten or one in twenty, for really exceptional books. So my four-star ranking for this still means I enjoyed the book a lot – I just like to leave a little room at the top in my ranking system!

    Wonderful Read!

    Louise Penny does it again. She takes us on a rollar coaster whodunit ride along with a cast of wonderful but flawed characters. I've read all her 'Three Pines' books and loved them all. A Better Man stands out as she delves deeper into all our beloved characters. Great read!

    Breath taking

    This was such a thrilling novel in the series. I was hooked all summer on reading the whole Armand Gamache series. This one is particularly breath taking.

    Outstanding!

    Once again Louise Penney has written a book that I cannot put down. I read it while visiting the areas of Quebec that she writes about. I have seen the Quebec that she writes about at every turn of the road and every place name that becomes instantly familiar. Unfortunately, I have finished the book in 2 days and now await with great anticipation for the next great story from a wonderful storyteller!
