That is one series that I really want to try but just haven't gotten around to it, yet.

I liked the first two books but haven't gotten around to the third yet. I was a little put off that we kept getting dragged back to the same little village.
I decided to call it quits after book 1. There's some good and reasonably profound writing there somewhere in the middle of the book, and I agree about the feisty poet character and about Gamache. But the cutesy cozy mystery tone of the book's beginning really got on my nerves so bad I almost DNF'd it right then and there (and probably would have, if I hadn't read it for "Festive Tasks") -- and oddball gay couples are becoming a downright trope in mysteries of late, which is a real shame IMHO, because it ends up making them less significant than they could be. (As for Yvette, I hated her pretty much from the word "go". Ultimately, my decision not to continue the series is independent of her character, but it would definitely be a further detractor to find out she's in book 2 as well.)
