It's no secret by this time that Louise Penny is one of my most favourite mystery writers, indeed one of my fave writers PERIOD. A Trick of the Light just reaffirms those facts. :) Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is back with his team, Beauvoir and Lacoste, but after the events of the previous tw...

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...

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.

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 dabble in reading mysteries - I enjoy them, but I don't generally seek them out. Louise Penny is an exception to this rule. These days, she's the one mystery author I will actively seek out, often borrowing copies of her books we've given to my mother or mother-in-law. Her books are always a pleas...
