Ms. Penny needs a better editor and....

I did not enjoy "Fatal Grace" as much as I did her premier novel, "Still Life", which is excellent. I am annoyed when folks try to quote famous people but do not check their research; such is the case when Ms. Penny misquotes Mahatma Gandhi. I also do not like to have religion of any ilk pounded into me. Ms. Penny tries to drive in a belief in God at many junctures. Having said all this, for the most part, it was an enjoyable read.

A Good Read

Louise Penny is a top-notch author of mysteries.
This book carries on with the series and is an
excellent read and leaves me looking forward to
continuing on with the adventures of Armand Gamache. Love the setting in a small town in Canada with all the characters one comes to feel a close friendship with.
