Still Life

517vbd5D37LI have heard a lot about Louise Penny over the last few months, so I thought I would start her Inspector Gamache series. Still Life is the first in a long line of her mysteries. In this case (ha!), the crime takes place in a small village near Montreal – a beloved schoolteacher is murdered in the night with a bow and arrow. Armand Gamache is brought in to help the locals solve the mystery. For me, the book had too slow a start and too many characters of which to keep track. And, while I finally got into the story, I am not really a mystery person and don’t think I will pursue any of the rest of the series. I am glad, however, that I got a glimpse into what everyone seems to be talking about lately.
