If you haven’t read Ms. Penny’s earlier books you might want to take a look. She’s a perfect author for people who like to binge read. In this book, we’re in Three Pines which has a history for Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and the residents of the usually peaceful town. The town is filled with interesting artists and a visiting medium who conducted a deadly seance. I won’t tell you more, I don’t want to give away too much. I’ll just say that you’ll love the characters, Gamache is a particular favorite of mine as he is with many readers, and you’ll love Three Pines if you haven’t read about before.
I read something at the end of this book that talked about Ms. Penny’s wonderful dialogue, appropriate I guess for an ad for an audio version of the book. But it is the blending of all the essentials of a good mystery that makes her books so satisfying to read.
