We invite you to join us for a book discussion about the Inspector Gamache series - whether you just read book one, STILL LIFE, or have read them all, you are invited! Jim Hess will lead a discussion about why this series is so interesting, what makes it a great read and promises, no spoilers (after book 1)!
Anyone that has purchased one Louise Penny book from the shop may attend. Please RSVP.
Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Québec digs beneath the idyllic surface of village life in Three Pines, finding long buried secrets--and facing a few of his own ghosts. Louise Penny's highly acclaimed, New York Times bestselling mystery series has won the New Blood Dagger as well as multiple Agatha, Anthony, Dilys, Arthur Ellis, and other prestigious awards. In 2010 the first book, Still Life, was cited as one of the five Mystery/Crime Novels of the Decade by Deadly Pleasures magazine.
It’s hard to decide what provides the most pleasure in this enjoyable book: Gamache, a shrewd and kindly man constantly surprised by homicide; the village, which sounds at first like an ideal place to escape from civilization; or the clever and carefully constructed plot. - Chicago Tribune
