A Canadian Author, with the crime thriller set in Quebec. To be reserved for the Canada Day Challenge.

From the back cover: "As the early morning mist clears on Thanksgiving Sunday, the homes of Three Pines come to life - - all except one... To locals, the village is a safe haven. So they are bewildered when a well-loved member of the community is found dead in the maple woods. Surely it was an accident - - a hunter's arrow gone astray. Who could want Jane Neal dead? In a long and distinguished career with the Surete du Quebec, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has learned to look for snakes in Eden. Gamache knows something dark is lurking behind the white picket fences, and if he watches closely enough, Three Pines will begin to give up its secrets...

8 out of 10

I found this to be an engaging novel by Louise Penny - - her first crime mystery novel and winner of the "Best First Novel" Arthur Ellis Award of the Crime Writers of Canada. The characters were well-developed and the uniqueness of Three Pines as a small village in Quebec brought the story to life. I'll look forward to following the adventures of Chief Inspector Armand Gamache in future novels by this Canadian author.

I left this book in England with my mother-in-law, as I thought she'd enjoy reading this one. I have another copy at home that I will save to release for the Canada Day Challenge in July 2012.
