friday favourite – Armand Gamache

He’s not real, but he totally comes to life on the pages of my Friday favourite – the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series of crime novels by Canadian author Louise Penny. If you ever watched Foyle’s War – for me, the two lead characters share much of the same charm.

I think there are 12 in the series. I am working through them in order – I’ve just started #8 The Beautiful Mystery. It’s worth the discipline and the waiting as I reserve them from my local library.

It might get a little old and tiring for some, I guess, but I love how the characters in the fictitious Quebec town of Three Pines make up the cast in varying degrees in every novel.

Cooler weather is coming…snuggle in with Armand.

    I absolutely love this series. Feels like being home in the Eastern Townships where I spent Much of my childhood. Lynn

    My cousin is a huge Gamache fan. She’s always chomping at the bit for the next one to come out. I read the first two in the series, but haven’t found time to read any others due to my book club reading commitments. I hope to get back to Three Pines soon!

        One book that we all enjoyed this year was The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto (Mitch Albom). We are reading Homegoing (Yaa Gyasi) this month … also a good read!
