i HAVE READ THE ENTIRE Gamache series and always enjoyed them. For whatever reason (maybe my advanced age!) I found this one slow going. Usually I read them in a day or two.
However, I was happy to be back with all those old friends, although the people of Three Pines were not so inclusive in this novel. Beauvoir is well up the ladder and has a nice surprise for us in store. For those that worry that Gamache will be no more, Penny has already finished the next novel and the library system has many copies on order. Put your hold order in now!
