Regretfully I turn the last page in my book, A TRICK OF THE LIGHT. Once again Louise Penny has taken me to the fictional Quebec Village of Three Pines. For too brief a while I was living in Three Pines. Buying books from Myrna, enjoying beef Bourgogne in the Bistro, listening to Ruth the poet.
Louise Penny’s writes mystery novels. But the mystery becomes part of the background. What captivates you is her exquisite touch with the characters who inhabit her novels. We want to follow them. We want to know them better. And this is what she delivers.
I think a lot about Three Pines. Regardless of the murders I want to live in Three Pines. There can be no higher praise.
