  • How the Light Gets In

    The Inspector Gamache series has become a favourite. As a Canuck, though not a Quebecois, it's nice to read well-written stories that take place in our northern climes. Great characters, great plots. Would love to visit Three Pines and have a coffee in the bistro, if only it existed - alas.

  • As always, Louise Penny's work is stupendous. Her characters and their struggles are deeply real - her ability to see beauty in the humble and everyday is gorgeously transmitted through her choice of language. Reading Louise Penny should be on everyone's bucket list.

  • Louise Penny has done it again!

    I am a bona fide Louise Penny fan and I have just finished her ninth novel, How The Light Gets In. It is, as always, sensational! And that comes from a reader who doesn't usually enjoy murder mysteries. However, Inspector Gamache of the Surete de Quebec and the inhabitants of the village of Three Pines in the Eastern Townships never fail to entertain me. I did wonder how a new reader to Louise's books might manage to pick up the sense of the threads of both the characters and the sinister mysterious plot that she has been carrying through all of her books. After a few chapters I realized that masterful Louise manages to inform even the newest reader of the ongoing story line. But, at the end of this book, the sinister ongoing plot is solved, the personal stories have happy endings and Inspector Gamache actually resigns and buys a house in the charming village of Three Pines. So where to now, Louise? Will we have a new heroine in Isabelle Lacoste?

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Intriguing murder mystery!

    Penny does not disappoint. Chief Inspector Gamache is thoughtful, patient and intelligent as usual. When the last of the Ouellet quintuplets is found murdered we are given a glimpse into the little girls' strange and secretive past. Not all is as it seems, not for the Quints who have some hidden dark secrets and not for Armand Gamache whose homicide department is diminished having been stripped of its best officers, especially his most beloved Jean-Guy Beauvoir. He is at his lowest and loneliest and must put his trust and his very life in the hands of one of his former academy students and her husband as well as an unstable agent who may or may not be an informant for his corrupt Superintendent. It all makes for a very intriguing and as usual delicious murder mystery!

    Thanks for your feedback!
