There are times when I read a passage of scripture, and it goes right over my head. Later, the Lord will direct me to the same passage again, and it‘s as if one verse is framed in neon and takes on a whole new meaning that applies so perfectly to my life at that moment.

A clever title for the story. We get a glimpse of the full horror of the terrorist attack from the previous book and Gamache‘s love for Quebec while solving the current murder. As always, Louise Penny keeps you hooked to the very end.

The book had me from the prologue with the birth of Eddie. (I‘ve been reading this series in order, but somehow missed the book before this. Although I discovered the mixup early on, I wasn‘t willing to let go of this book till I discovered all that happened to Eddie.) Maisie is maturing in her character and it‘s enjoyable watching history unfold in her life. Eddie was a surprising man who influenced those around him.

From the exciting emergency birth during a major storm through a prison escape, the authors keep the pace moving. And, of course, leave you with a cliffhanger.

Two separate acts of murder involved around one house. People have just disappeared. Until the owner of the house asks gardeners to replant a garden. This story makes you ask some questions. I‘d put it between a pick and a so-so. There were places it dragged, but the characters and their development was interesting.

A story about the damaged lives led by two men who survived an accident which killed their father and for which one of them was responsible. Their personal damage spills over onto others, damaging them. I think the author‘s intention was to write a hopeful book, but I‘m not sure she succeeded.

Wow! It is the telling of the story even more than the solving of the puzzle that draws you in and holds you in it‘s grip. I fought the answer all the way through. And, I‘m not saying more lest I ruin even one morsel for you.

TrishB I fought the answer and then still hated it! 4mo
Mshookquilts @TrishB Right!?! But, still, it was a fantastic read. I told my husband he‘d love it but, that at each red herring, he‘d be saying “please let it be true.” 4mo
TrishB It‘s a great series 👍🏻 4mo

‘“Do you have a gun?” Beauvoir whispered as they ran, crouched, to the corner of the house. Gamache shook his head. Really, thought Beauvoir. There were times he just felt like shooting the Chief himself. ‘

This was a delightful read. A love story and the mystery of a missing/ disappearing duchess told through 3 time periods. That may sound complicated but it actually flows very smoothly. Thank you @FeatherV for turning me on to this book.
