I want to rush right out and buy this for my my friends, a couple--one a musician and the other a poet. It inspired and moved me. Louise Penny has quickly become one of my favorite authors. In fact, I keep telling folks that my first retirement trip is going to include a literary tour of Quebec following the Inspector Gamache books. I just hope I can find Three Pines (or something like it!).
Finally Three Pines is spared a murder! This mystery takes place at monastery of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups. A monastery hidden from view for centuries and recently come to public attention through the making of a CD of Gregorian Chants. But, success breeds dissent and hence Gamache and Jean-Guy Beauvoir go together to investigate the murder of one of the monks.
The secondary plots of the series are nicely developed as well.
Take a day or two to savor this one (and maybe put some Gregorian Chants on as you read)!
