I'm not sure if I was just in a slump or what but the beginning of this book was killing me I was so bored and didn't care. The second half of the book was better but the sub plot seemed odd and a bit slap dash even though it's been set up for three books. I don't know maybe I just wasn't actually i...

I really need to get a timeline down on the events that have happened to our main character and the villagers of Three Pines. Both seem tied together in my head, but you realize that things have occurred to Chief Inspector Armand that colors how he investigates now. I really wish we had gotten more ...

This is the third book in the series, and Inspector Gamache is back in Three Pines for another murder. I don't read many series where the community is just as much a key part of the overall story as the basic plot.

April is the cruelest month according to T.S. Elliot. Louise Penny took him at his word and gave her hero a serious beating in this third installment of the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novels. The murder investigation almost takes a back seat to the Sûreté subplot that's been brewing over the pre...

4 stars. Number three in the series. The Canadian town I would love to live in, excepting it's high murder rate. Fortunately, the chief inspector likes it as much as I do, so he and his team can hit the B&B, firehouse, and local bookstore, running.

Very enjoyable book. It's not just about a murder mystery, it's about relationships within this village. I'm surprised the people that live there aren't a little more paranoid because as small as the village is, they're being killed off one by one. One relationship I love to read about is Clara a...
