Each book reminds me of home in different ways, - I love that. And just when I think the next book can't possibly be any better than the one I've just finished, I learn, once again, how wrong I can be ????
Another GREAT Inspector Gamache book! Very engaging story line with lots of old friends from Three Pines, as well as finally getting resolution to some old mysteries that have been hinted at along the way. Mr. Cosham is the embodiment of Gamache to me, he captures his strength and his gentleness so perfectly! Thank you Louise Penny for this wonderful series of books. They are smart, exciting and have so many characters that I have absolutely fallen in love with. And don't get me started on the food porn, lol ????. Definitely a five star book! ?? ????????
This book was selected by a member of my book club and I was a little skeptical when I read the story synopsis. I hadn't read any other books in the series. I also found it difficult to understand the narrator initially as his voice often trails off at the end of sentences. However, I became engrossed in the story and his voice interpretation. At the end of the book, there is an interview with the narrator. I learned then that he had narrated all the previous books and was in fact seen by many as the 'voice' of Inspector Gamache. Very entertaining.
I was not sure how this one was going to end, but I liked the surprise!
So glad it ended the way it did. It was an Awesome book, Louise Penney is the best. Narrator is the best. I will miss him
