Still Life

If you love good mysteries, you'll enjoy the Armand Gamache series by Louise Penny.  In the first installment, Still Life, it was set in Canada. In the debut mystery, Jane Neal was found dead in Three Pines, a tiny village, which causes a bit of upset. It was up to Gamache and his police force to find out about her life and past, her friends and family, and who wanted to harm her and others, when a cast of suspicion was thrown to one person to another. Secrets and lies were exposed. In the end, they really get up and close to find out who've done it and why. A great debut!

This was a terrific read. I loved the small town community of Three Pines, Quebec, Canada. It was some remote and quiet for a crime scene. I loved getting to know everyone in Three Pines. I found Armand Gamache an interesting and robust chief inspector. His police team were quite interesting and amusing as well. I didn't like the way Jane died though. This was an enjoyable mystery, too. Great drama, nice action and suspense, and plenty of intrigue for a good read.
