I just finished the first book (Still Life) in the Three Pines series and really enjoyed it. This definitely falls in the cozy category but it is also quite funny with some lovely prose thrown in for good measure. I'm pretty far down the WL for the 2nd book but if anyone is looking to get rid of a copy, I'd be happy for you to post it to me! :)

LeeAnne, I've read all three of the Three Pines mysteries and have enjoyed them immensely. I was able to find The Cruelest Month at the library. Penny truly has created some memorable characters in this series, don't you agree?

I just received "Still Life" and am anxious to start it. According to you guys, I should enjoy it.

Absolutely, Anna! I think I have a bit of a crush on Gamache already! I just got the second book in the series last evening but I'm about halfway through an Ian Rutledge mystery so I have to finish that before I head back to Quebec. :)

Although he is a fictional character, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surete du Quebec frequently shares (through author Penny, of course) thoughts that inspire.

Gamache's Four Statements that Lead to Wisdom:

  1. I don't know.
  2. I'm sorry.
  3. I need help.
  4. I was wrong.
