Louise Penny is a masterful story teller. The way she weaves multiple plots and subplots into a lovely dance is so satisfying and interesting. I've yet to guess whodunnit before it was revealed. Yet her stories are more than mysteries. They are philosophical and artistic and colorful. They are an homage to the beautifully flawed characters of Three Pines. And as such I've been able to reread each of the books--more than once--because in the end it's not about who committed the murder that is central to every novel but about the journey to get there and the continuation of the saga of the people of Three Pines and the people closest to Armand Gamache. My heart lives there and I await each new installment with bated breath. This one had many loose ends that were tied up and it makes me anxious that we are reaching the end of the Three Pines stories. I so hope I am wrong.

Louise Penny has become one of my favorite authors and I so look forward to each new book in her Inspector Gamache series. Often it seems that mystery writers who write a series of books with the same main character essentially end up writing the same book over and over again. Not so with Louise Penny. Her characters are multi-dimensional, and they are true reflections of the "human condition". Her books are of the "mystery" genre, yet her writing transcends genre. "A Great Reckoning" could be read/listened to as a stand alone mystery, but I highly recommend starting at book one in this amazing series.
