“Hearts are broken,” Lillian Dyson carefully underlined in a book. “Sweet relationships are dead.”

But now Lillian herself is dead. Found among the bleeding hearts and lilacs of Clara Morrow's garden in Three Pines, shattering the celebrations of Clara's solo show at the famed Musée in Montreal.

Chief Inspector Gamache, the head of homicide at the Sûreté du Québec, is called to the tiny Quebec village and there he finds the art world gathered, and with it a world of shading and nuance, a world of shadow and light. 

Where nothing is as it seems. 

Behind every smile there lurks a sneer.

Inside every sweet relationship there hides a broken heart. 

And even when facts are slowly exposed, it is no longer clear to Gamache and his team if what they've found is the truth, or simply a trick of the light.

3.5 A Trick of the Light by Louise Penny
The last three books in this series have reminded me why I don't typically read contemporary fiction. I feel like too much of the poetic prose has been overwhelmed with modern issues that I have no interest in. The mystery in this novel is unpredictable and as convoluted as any other in the series...

5.0 A Trick of the Light (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache #07) - Louise Penny
I must admit I like this series more and more with each installment. This series is not exciting, doesn't keep you on your toes, but instead it's meticulous, patient, and so real, it's heartbreaking. I fell like I need to meet Gamache in real life and tell him how much I admire him. I definitively r...

4.0 When Heroes Start Acting Human
Sometimes I love Mary Sues and Gary Stus and sometimes I hate them. I've loved (most of) Louise Penny's Marys and Garys from the beginning, and now that some of my favorites are showing their mere mortal-ness I find myself conflicted. I want them to be paragons of crime-fighting who hardly ever put ...

Author: Louise Penny Series: Chief Inspector Armand Gamache #7 Rating: 4 stars Another great installment to the Inspector Gamache series. In this one I was especially struck by how much you canNOT read these books out of order. Each book builds on the last. The continuity and character development...
