This is the first in the series of 8 books starring Armande Gamache. He is a Surete'/detective who goes to this quaint town in Quebec to solve a mystery.Three Pines seemed so real. I found this read so refreshing because it was a good mystery with great plot and characters that were believable. There were not gruesome/vulgar descriptions, just a good old mystery. It took me a week to read and I enjoyed it so much I went back to the library and picked up the next one this past weekend.
I went to the library on Monday to find the next one in Aramande Gamache's series and was sad to find many of the Louise Penny books missing. Someone must have found how good the books are too and checked a bunch out. So now I'm on the hold list. I figured it was a sign I needed to give Armande a rest and move on to other books. I'm so thankful to have Nina suggested this author and this series. Truly enjoyable reading!
