I chose this book because I‘d seen some good reviews and wanted to find a new ‘detective‘ series. I didn‘t really enjoy this one. I found the writing clunky and I wasn‘t drawn into the mystery. I‘ll have to keep hunting 😊

Christyco125 I had the same feeling about the first one. Think of it as more of an introduction to a bigger world. The stories get more interesting and the characters get way deeper the longer you follow the series. 4d
Eva2 Thanks for that @Christyco125 😊 3d

Just ten pages in and had to google ice canoe racing because I had never heard of it. This is wild! Photo taken from https://www.vqronline.org/reporting-articles/2018/03/revival-ice-canoe One of the many reasons to read, and to read books set in other countries than our own is to learn cool stuff like this.

3.5 stars. Not my favorite of the series. Pulling together all the pieces felt forced. I appreciate how Penny brings in parts of history I would never have known about, and I liked seeing another side of Ruth. I will always love returning to 3 Pines, and just have to accept that not every trip can be my favorite 😊

I thought this was the strongest for a while. Ethical dilemma at the centre, mystery killing and the pandemic. Written against the euphoria that we have a vaccine and all is back to normal. If only it were that simple.

4.5⭐️ Damn you Louise Penny & HRC for writing such a good book. The only complaint I have is that the middle dragged a little too much but when you have a fmr Sec of State giving details about life as Sec of State, it‘s probably going to drag a bit on policy at times. And like any good Three Pines Book, it gets really good in the final 1/3 and the payoff is excellent. The acknowledgements is excellent as well.

marleed I think it‘s game on for James & Bill to outwrite Louise & Hillary! 1mo

3 STARS - Not my fav book so far. It dragged with too much art world info, emotional baggage of the villagers when all I wanted was the mystery and Quebec history. A decent read but I'm hoping the next book hits me like Bury Your Dead (book 6) hit me.

Another amazing entry in the Three Pines/Inspector Gamache series!

Penny‘s ability to suck in the reader into not only the narrative but also the underlying currents is astounding. For this one, forgiveness plays such a vital role - going beyond to forgive of not to forgive to examine thoughts and feelings and actions about a horrible situation and the energy it would take to forgive someone. Such a great read!

PageShifter Sounds interesting! 1mo

Louise Penny hits another one out of the park. I love the dynamics of the characters and how they interact with one another in this series. It‘s also great they flash back to give you glimpses of how these relationships developed. #audio #christyread #series

Grounded in relationships, emotions, and inner-life, this murder mystery is about what gives life meaning. The victim‘s death was one moment in a surging stream of many beautiful others, and that is recalled lovingly through the grief of her artistic community of chosen family. Every character, whose minds we skip to rapidly through the novel, is challenged to grow and learn. Some choose not to, and theirs are the “still” lives.

vivastory Fantastic review. I've been meaning to read this for awhile & your review has definitely bumped it up my TBR 1mo
Michael_Gee @vivastory oh, great! I hope you like it, too. It was recommended to me months ago. I was on the library‘s wait list for awhile before it became available but it was easy to read it all before the due date. 1mo

🎧 I‘m not familiar with this author. This is a novella. Perfect length! (Hoopla)

A jogger comes across a suicide/hanging while jogging in a remote area.

Chief Inspector Gamache investigates and finds several interesting twists!

I need to add some more of her books to my TBR.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

kspenmoll She is wonderful! Love her Three Pines series. 1mo
Twainy @kspenmoll I just found this series on Audible!! The Hangman is book 6.5 in that series! I can‘t wait to try a full length novel! Thank you! 1mo
