    Whether set in Three Pines or, as in this novel, the Manoir Bellechasse in a secluded area in the Quebec countryside, Chief Inspector Gamache is a character that one wants to follow everywhere he goes. And, it seems that murder must follow him even when he is celebrating an anniversary with his wife. This book is more than a mystery and suspense novel, it is a story of character, the flaws and the triumphs. Inspector Gamache's deep and poetical thoughts and his respectful mannerisms are inspiring. I enjoy how he treats his wife, his friends, and brings out the best in his work colleagues. He is a man to admire. Although all of Louise Penny's books starring Armande Gamache are excellent, this one stood out because of the poetry of his thoughts and the intricacies of the murder. As we spend time with the obnoxious family of suspects, we gain a deeper understanding of the power of greed and selfishness to destroy - even ending in murder. Most murder stories are not inspiring, this one is.

    Sibling rivalry

    The usual great plot, setting, characters and a novel setting. A bit heavy on the menu descriptions.

    A Rule Against Murder

    It was interesting.. but the start was much too slow for me. I like a puzzle from the very beginning and loads of pieces to put together. I expected bees wax to be used in place of sugar.. a powdery substance like sugar would be seen and blow away much too easy. What did the history of the lodge have to do with the murder? Just a miss direction? No fare.. if this was the intention by the author. Still the inspector was believable as a character and was why I gave it such a good rating.
