I want to move to Three Pines…

I finished reading Louise Penny’s A Fatal Grace over a week ago and I am still somewhat sad that I don’t get to continue on with the townspeople of Three Pines each night. A Fatal Grace is part of a series so I will get to come back to these interesting folks, but not for a while.

A Fatal Grace fulfills one of the Book Awards Challenge novels. It won the Agatha Award 2008. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! I tend to like crime novels, so I assumed I would get through it fairly easily. But this was a smart crime novel, with incredibly interesting characters. And not just the central detective sent to solve the crime that sets the story in motion. The town of Three Pines where the crime takes place is full of quirky, endearing people who are the heart of the novel. I found myself wanting to walk the town square and stop in for a drink at the local bistro.

My book club was nice enough to choose A Fatal Grace as our pick for this month. I will be interested to learn if I am the only one who was so taken by this story. And I eagerly look forward to reading more about Three Pines and from Louise Penny.

    I really enjoyed it! I can’t wait to hear which clues people put together – and when! I figured out some of it, but was definitely taken by surprise by other pieces of the plot.

    I also really want to start working the term “funspiel” into future conversations.

    I think I’m going to read the first book in the series soon – it was alluded to so often w/in this book that I’m eager to dive into it soon.
