An enjoyable and well-written story

I don’t actually have enough stars to give to this book. It was literally breathtaking. This is the ninth book in the Gamache series and the last one was very disappointing and left me wondering if maybe Ms. Penny would not be able to sustain the level of excellence that had defined the series until then. I was wrong. This book manages to juggle a bunch of different goals and each of them is handled deftly and with great emotional impact. There is the individual story of this book, which involves a murder and an unraveling of family and societal secrets. Since I’m SPOILER AVERSE I won’t go into the details but it is revealed nicely, develops with good pace, has some nice red herrings and diversions, and is resolved well. But as always with these books there is a lot more going on than the crime at hand. The major continuing story lines from the first eight books is fleshed out and really moved along, in ways I was not necessarily expecting and with intriguing results. I will admit that my least favorite part of many series books is the continuing super villain or problem, but Ms. Penny turns it into a positive for me. Finally, and most importantly, is the development of the rich cast of characters she has created. Without a doubt this is the strength of all of the books and I marveled at how she manages the myriad pieces on her chess board in the book. Major characters are given wonderful developmental arcs, always believable but often surprising (if that makes sense). I actually feared up a little at one scene late in the book between two characters where each is allowed to redeem themselves that is shown with such small pieces of action. One simple gesture on one characters part and the willingness to accept that gesture on another is rendered in such pitch perfect prose that I simply stopped and considered it (this is the literal breathtaking part). The character of Gamache continues to defy banality and the depth of his depiction is wonderful. In addition to the main characters being so well treated, Ms. Penny is able to bring in many of the other characters she has created in the first eight books and she gives them true life. It is definitely a series that rewards you for reading through. There are payoffs and aha moments that really resonate. Finally, I was reading this book as I’m on a family trip to Montreal and Quebec City and it could not have been more timely. Much of this story takes place in Montreal and I had just visited one of the places that plays a major role in the back story of the novel as I was reading about it. The title of the book coming from a Leonard Cohen song is obviously just icing on the cake. I’m very glad that I was wrong to be worried about Gamache. I’m not sure where the next books in the series will take me, that is after all part of the fun of reading them, but I’m absolutely willing to go along for the ride. ( )

I thoroughly enjoy this series from Louise Penny. The rural setting outside of Montreal, the quirky characters who evolve in each book, and the exquisite writing all pull me forward. As I move through the series, I am definitely finding some I like better than others. In this case, I took some points away for the quickly resolved ending of one of the plot lines. It was unrealistic to a fault. ( )

This just might have been my favorite Gamache story. As painful as it is, Penny delivers another masterpiece. ( )
