Louise Penney is a superb writer in my opinion. She has setting, characters, human dimensions that draw me in. I'm charmed and so close to the cast of characters. Humor and pain and puzzles to ponder.

The first reading of Louise Penny and Chief Inspector Gamache series.Impressed with her writings and description of; Canada's physical environment,varying locations, characters( protagonist and antagonist). That being said, 'How The Lights Gets In' has an excellent storyline and a good overall plot, but questions revolve around; the forty year strategy to assume control over top govern- mental areas in Canada requires many, many things to align to effect any plans, among them longevity of antagonist, patience, willing accomplishes, etc. Gamache solves two separate crimes in an suspense and action filled tale. Also, what happen to Andr'e Pineault?

This was fantastic. If you are familiar with this series, you will love this latest book. If you are not familiar with this series and you are a mystery reader, I would highly recommend this. It has a great pace and a wonderful setting and you will love the characters.

Heads up Gamache fans! Ready for a treat? When I was poking around yesterday in louise penny.com, I found the juicy news we've all been waiting for!!! Mark down Aug. 26, 2014 in your calendar -- that's the release date for what'll be the 10th Book in the Gamache series -- THE LONG WAY HOME!! No teasers about content yet but maybe there'll be clues dropped this spring or summer... Sign yourself up for the Louise Penny newsletter at Louise.penny.com for future details!

This is the 3rd book in the series for me. I couldn't put the book down for the first half, and after that just got bored with it. Same thing happened with one of the others. Not sure what it is, too many words? Once I've figured out "whodunit", I'm done.

Penny develops characters that leap off the page; one of her best.

First time reading from this author. I read half of the story and put it down. Maybe will pick it up again soon and maybe not. Perhaps I should read other books of hers first.

Wonderful balance of murder mystery and political intrigue. Always best to start from the earlier books to get a sense of the complexity of these charachters, but the author gives us enough background so the story does stand alone.

You have to read the books leading up to this one.to fully understand it. I did not want it to finish and yet could not stop reading.
