Winner of the 2007 Agatha Award for Best Novel!Welcome to winter in Three Pines, a picturesque village in Quebec, where the villagers are preparing for a traditional country Christmas, and someone is preparing for murder.No one liked CC de Poitiers. Not her quiet husband, not her spineless lover, not her pathetic daughter―and certainly none of the residents of Three Pines. CC de Poitiers managed to alienate everyone, right up until the moment of her death. When Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, of the Sûreté du Quebec, is called to investigate, he quickly realizes he's dealing with someone quite extraordinary. CC de Poitiers was electrocuted in the middle of a frozen lake, in front of the entire village, as she watched the annual curling tournament. And yet no one saw anything. Who could have been insane enough to try such a macabre method of murder―or brilliant enough to succeed?With his trademark compassion and courage, Gamache digs beneath the idyllic surface of village life to find the dangerous secrets long buried there. For a Quebec winter is not only staggeringly beautiful but deadly, and the people of Three Pines know better than to reveal too much of themselves. But other dangers are becoming clear to Gamache. As a bitter wind blows into the village, something even more chilling is coming for Gamache himself.

3.5 "Dead Cold - Chief Inspector Gamache #2" by Louise Penny - not your typical whodunnit
"Dead Cold" (published in the US under the less pleasingly ambiguous and less accurate title of "A Fatal Grace") surprised me by being qualitatively very different from "Still Life", the first book in the series. "Still Life" was a comforting, almost wistful, book in which a wise detective gently ...

5.0 Three Pines in Winter
I maybe said, don't leave me when I finished this book. I swear, the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series is becoming a fast favorite with me. We have Gamache reappearing in Three Pines again after the murder of a loathsome woman. I think that Penny, just like Christie, has a way for villains in he...

3.0 A Fatal Grace
I liked this book marginally better than the first. I was used to the style of the audiobook narration, so maybe that had something to do with it. I also felt the characters were a bit more developed this time around. I was able to figure out who had killed CC - I had a few working theories, but ...

1.0 A Fatal Grace (orig. Dead Cold) by Louise Penny
Series: Armand Gamache #2 I am done with this series. Maybe it gets better, but I just don’t think I have the patience to put up with it. That’s not to say that other people wouldn’t love this book; it’s just that it does a lot of little things that add up to a lot of annoyance for me. Penny did...
