No one liked CC de Poitiers. Not her quiet, ineffectual husband. Not the pallid, spineless photographer who was her lover. Not even her tremendously fat, eleven-year-old daughter Crie, dubbed "Brie" by her hateful classmates. And certainly none of the residents of the village of Three Pines, each of whom CC had managed to offend. Therein lies the challenge for the Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Quebec, called in once again from Montreal to investigate murder in this hamlet.

Second title in an engaging mystery series set in rural Quebec. The audiobook reader is great-- he definitely adds value to an already excellent story. Grab a title from the Three Pines Mystery series for your next road trip!

Louise Penny hooked me with "The Beautiful Mystery," compelled me to start from the beginning with "Still Life," and pleases once again with "A Fatal Grace." I can't get enough of her rich, original mysteries set in Quebec! Inspector Gamache and his colleague Beauvoir are an excellent team reminiscent of Holmes and Watson. I can't wait to dive into more of their adventures.

I liked this book even better than the first; rediscovering the villagers and Gamache through the now-familiar style of Cosham's voice. The victim, if you can call her that, was so horrendous a person was glad to see her die, but it was the history behind her story that was what made her who she was and why she was murdered. This book also really brought out Gamache's history in the police - and implications for the future! "Don't trust them Gamache!"

Lovely story that bring Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his posse back to Three Pines. Low and behold there are two murders and they are linked. But will he and his team be able to find the murder in time? Guess you will have to read to find out more. Recommend.
