While I enjoyed the first book in the series (Still Life), I found this one more entertaining, at least in the writing. The plot is satisfyingly complex, although I found the solution to the murder a little too much of a stretch. I usually avoid mysteries that are marketed as "laugh out loud" funny, and even though this one isn't like that, some of the dialogue was pretty witty -- maybe Louise Penny needs to write screenplays and infuse some intelligence back into the movie world.

Really enjoyed this book -- interesting locale, and characters you care about in a decent amount of depth.

I'm not sure why I like this new series, but I really do. I like Gamache, who is a very human, accessible cop and I like the recurring residents of Three Pines, a small, rural town outside of Montreal. The stories are not long nor terribly complex but they are entertaining. I'm looking forward to reading more of Penny's work.

Book 2 of the Inspector Gamache Series

I love this series! So many turns and twists, and just when you think you have it figured out, the author throws a new one your way.

Be sure to read Book 1 first as many of the characters reappear in this book with more insights into their lives and personalities.

A great read!

Louise Penny's "Three Pines" series never fails to be a good read. I have not read the books in order but her ability to thoroughly invest in her characters in each book does not make this a problem. This is the second in the series and I now have the background on some of the individual story lines.This only adds to my enjoyment.
I only gave this 3.5 stars because I thought the resolution to the mystery not entirely believeable; getting there by her develpoment of the characters kept me involved to the end.
