Book and Film Challenge Update

Book number 71 was A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny. It was a Chief Inspector Armand Gamache mystery. Gamache has two murders to solve in this book. He is called to Three Pines at Christmastime to solve the electrocution murder of CC de Poitiers, a disliked self-styled guru of a philosophy called Li Bien, in which all emotions have colors. These emotions and colors are supressed until only whiteness remains and along with it, calmness. But she was not a well-liked woman. She treated her husband and daughter abysmally and looked with disdain on the villagers. The other murder Gamache must solve is the murder of a vagrant woman who was strangled to death outside a department store in Montréal. She was identified only as “Elle” or “She.” Something about this murder intrigues Gamache and he sets out to determine who Elle really was and who killed her.

The usual cast of characters of Three Pines is involved: Peter and Clara Murrow, Ruth Zardo, Gabri, Olivier, and the others. They help Gamache and Jean Guy Beauvoir and the team (yes, Agent Yvette Nichol has managed to get herself assigned to the team again, much to the dismay of everyone involved) put together the puzzle pieces and with the help of Clara’s art, the case is solved. Seventy-one down, 29 to go.


About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
