I’ve been quietly reading this lovely book for ages. 2 weeks is a long time for me to spend in the company of characters but it was lovely and lively company. Louise Penny is so good at drawing you into her lovely cozy world of Three Pines and then making you uncomfortable as she places a mystery at the centre of the village and making everyone a suspect.
The crime in this particular one is set in a police training college and the victim is a man who nobody is sorry to see dead, thus everyone is a suspect. The young trainees who have been closest to the victim are sent to Three Pines and given a separate mystery to solve and so now there are two threads of mystery which need to be followed to their conclusion. Who killed Leduc and what is the meaning of the mysterious map found within the walls of the cafe. If cosy, but not too cosy, mysteries are your thing then this latest from Louise Penny will be right up your alley. I love that you can dip in and out of this series without having read any of the previous books. Perfect book to read in front of a cozy fire in the winter!
