Still Life by Louise Penny.
A dear friend of mine asked "have you read Louise Penny? She is a new mystery writer and is making quite a stir."
I wrote down the authors name and put it on my library list. I am so grateful for the recommendation because I love the book!
The main character is Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and the books take place in Montreal and the Quebec area. Immediately, I was drawn to Gamache. He has some of the charisma of Richard Jury in the Martha Grimes books but doesn't seem to have as many demons and consequently leads a more stable life.
I absolutely loved the book and can't wait to get the next one from the library!
'til next time...
