My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I thoroughly enjoyed this read, with its compelling characters that maintained their flaws and foibles through a nicely complex plot. The scenery was well described, but the rich character development was what made the story.
This isn’t the first I have read of this series, but reading the books out of sequence is working for me. I think this is a tribute to how Louise Penny has maintained the characters and setting through this series.
Inspector Gamache of the Sûreté du Québec and his team investigate a death in the very small village of Three Pines. The residents provide a closed environment so suitable for a murder investigation.
