Still Life (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache Mysteries, No. 1)

$7.99$2.99Audiobook: 12.99 (Whispersync)
In the idyllic small town of Three Pines, Quebec, where people don’t even lock their doors, a beloved local woman is found in the woods with an arrow shot through her heart. The locals believe it must be a hunting accident, but the police inspector senses something is off. The story is constructed as a classic whodunit but it feels like anything but, with its deliberate pacing, dry wit, and lyrical writing. A stunningly good first novel. Still Life is the first in a series (of 11 books to date) that keeps getting better. For fans of Jacqueline Winspear. Great on audio. More info →

No one liked CC de Poitiers. Not her quiet husband, not her spineless lover, not her pathetic daughter—and certainly none of the residents of Three Pines. CC de Poitiers managed to alienate everyone, right up until the moment of her death. When Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, of the Sûreté du Quebec, is called to investigate, he quickly realizes he's dealing with someone quite extraordinary." Add Audible narration for $3.99.

Glass Houses: A Novel (Chief Inspector Gamache Novel)

A new Louise Penny! This is book 13 in the series; you don't have to read these novels in order, but I recommend it: you'll miss the richness of her plot lines and characters if you jump in midstream. Penny's whodunit plot lines are an excuse to explore human nature, granting them a depth and psychological astuteness not often found in this genre. We're back in fictional Three Pines for this one: imagine the cozy feel and quirky characters of Stars Hollow, with fewer teenagers, more murder, and a smidge less levity.

This eighth installment of Louise Penny's Chief Inspector Gamache series takes place when "the lock on the monastery of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups is drawn back, hidden deep in the wilderness of Quebec, where two dozen cloistered monks live in peace and prayer, they grow vegetables, they tend chickens, they make chocolate. And they sing. Ironically, for a community that has taken a vow of silence, the monks have become world-famous for their glorious voices. Before restoring peace, the Chief must first consider the divine, the human, and the cracks in between." The reviews on this call Penny "utterly reliable, utterly enchanting" (Herald Sun) and "ingenious, gripping and elegant... an utterly magical read." Add Audible narration for $12.99. More info →

There was never a question I'd continue with the Inspector Gamache series (although I will say that book 3 wasn't my favorite) but the series moves to the next level in this sixth installment, in which Penny finally brings a plotline she's only hinted at in previous books front and center, and it is riveting.

Series: Best novels of 2015
Genre: Mystery
Tag: Quick Lit
Penny's mysteries are alternately centered in the cozy village of Three Pines and the wider world. For this excellent follow-up to the game-changing Bury Your Dead, Inspector Gamache returns to Three Pines to solve a murder that's intimately tied to the world of fine art. The story is built around the concept of chiaroscuro—the contrast between dark and light that's significant in some artists' works, and in all our natures. It may sound obtuse, but Penny probes with a light hand. It works. More info →
