Finished it!
The Long Way Home - Louise Penny

Hmmm, this one definitely isn't my favourite in the series.

 

I mean the art stuff was very interesting and all, but please can Gamache come out of retirement. I want more police procedural and less relationship angst. Especially when it's Clara who's suffering.

 

 

and I never liked Peter Morrow anyway, so I can't say I was that upset about what happened to him.

Reading progress update: I've read 9%.
The Long Way Home - Louise Penny

I requested this from the library yesterday and was expecting to wait for a while before it became available. So it was a bit of a surprise when I got notification I could download it onto my Kindle tonight.

 

Not that I'm complaining mind you.

Halloween Bingo 2017 - In the Dark Dark Woods
How the Light Gets In - Louise Penny

Managed to sneak in one last bingo square, and what a doozy it was.

 

It looks as though the Arnot story arc has finally come to an end, and there were plenty of loose ends which have been neatly (maybe a little too neatly) tied up.

 

But I'm definitely interested to see where this series is going next.

Glass Houses - Louise Penny

Wow, how in the heck have I come this far in my life and never read Louise Penny before? I've known for a while that she has quite the following. And now, . . . I know why. Good Grief this was a great read for me.

I spent three quarters of this book immersed in a trial without even knowing who the defendant was, or even if they were female or male. The story went from present to back history to a little further back history, then like six months before and then back to the trial, then like a month before. I mean it was jumping all over the place. And I absolutely loved the characters in Three Pines. Especially the VERY quirky ones. Ha!! 

Even though this was number 13 in the series of Armand Gamache, I still felt like I hadn't missed anything. I mean in the sense that I know there were other things that happened prior to this book, but I didn't feel as though I missed out on anything!!!

I know I am preaching to the choir when I say that I was so mesmerized by this book. It did go back and forth a lot, and being an advanced reader, it was hard to keep up as I had to stop for a few seconds and wonder where I was but that did not deter me, AT ALL!!!!!!

If you have not read Louise Penny, don't take as long as I did to figure out that it's an excellent read.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, laughed quite a few times and was definitely shedding some tears at the end. I grew to love these characters and really miss them now that I've left Three Pines.

Thanks to St. Martin's Press and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
