Penny's newest mystery returns to Three Pines, the bucolic but hardly idyllic hamlet south of Montreal where Inspector Gamache has his hands full contending with a pair of murders including that of a spiritual and domestic diva. After finishing Still Life, I left no time picking up A Fatal Grace and learning more about the characters I had come to love in Book 1. One of the things I love most about a well-done series is watching an author effortlessly weave new characters in and out of the path of old characters, introducing new dimension to those characters. I can already tell from the second book in this series that Louise Penny is a master at this.

A foot of snow had fallen in the last few weeks and every old home round the village green had its own tuque of purest white. Smoke wafted out of the chimneys as though the homes had their own voice and breath, and Christmas wreaths decorated the doors and gates. Cresting a hill along a bumpy dirt road she’d come across a village hidden among the hills and forests.

Comments: (7)

I thoroughly enjoy Louise Penny's writing style. Within reading a few paragraphs of her first Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novel (Still Life), I knew was going to really like her books. The story is not "action-packed." What it is, is a great mystery, filled with deeply developed characters. I care about these people, and feel what they're feeling. The book takes its time building the story. The murder is not without several valid candidates who have motive and opportunity.
Follow the Chief Inspector as he methodically inspects the scene, collects and studies the evidence, and interviews everyone involved. The setting is Three Pines, a quaint town in Canada, which boasts a wide variety of citizenry.
If you like a good mystery, I think you'll find this series delightful.
Readers of these excellent books need to be aware that Dead Cold and
A Fatal Grace are the same book - the first one is the British title
and the second the American title - otherwise, no difference! I made
the mistake of ordering them both.... it happens sometimes.
Do you enjoy detective fiction? Check this out.

An unpopular woman, a newcomer to town, is murdered in the middle of the day at a popular sports event in rural Quebec. She was mysteriously electrocuted sitting in a lawn chair on the sidelines. The local constable is clueless.

Enter the celebrated homicide detective, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surete du Quebec with a retinue of subordinates. Gamache plunges into the investigation with his usual quiet intensity, deploying his team with great skill. Suspects abound — of course: your job is to guess whodunit — and the Inspector methodically eliminates them, one by one. Meanwhile, his boss in Montreal is scheming to end Gamache’s career as chief of homicide because he exposed corruption at the highest level in the Surete in a previous case. The boss has planted a spy on Gamache’s team.

Now picture this setting: an isolated village in Quebec, not found on any maps, often snow-bound, but populated by a blend of long-time residents and cultural refugees from the hustle of Montreal, located an hour away. Among the late-comers are a misanthropic old woman who is one of Canada’s leading poets, a world-class painter struggling because he can only produce one or two paintings a year, his wife who is probably a better artist than he is but can’t catch a break, a bantering gay couple who own the bistro and the B&B, and a jumbo-sized black woman who bought the local bookstore after leaving a successful career as a clinical psychologist in the city. We met this cast of fascinating but lovable characters in a previous novel (Still Life) in the venerable Inspector Gamache series. They’re back playing their assigned roles as foils to Gamache’s brilliance in this first-class followup.

If you enjoy fluid and evocative writing, three-dimensional characters, well-crafted suspense, and a complex puzzle, you’ll love A Fatal Grace.
This book was picked for one of my Book Club reads. I love it! Chief Inspector Ganache is a great lead character; intelligent, thoughtful, kind and guided by a moral and ethical soul. His team is an interesting blend of smart and complicated characters. The townsfolk of Three Pines are odd, unusual and entertaining; I would love to be at one of Clare and Peter's dinners! Mysteries are well written, and very well plotted. I enjoyed this book so much, I immediately ordered another and another and am now on my 4th. In each of the books I have read, Ms. Penny gives the immediate mystery to be solved, but she also has a back story that slowly unfolds and effects the behavior of the team as well as ties into the current investigation. Well done!
Risky Strong Dromedary
I found Fatal Grace to be a little slow. The beginning was good and the end was great but the middle was slow and didn't move along like I wanted it too. I felt like there were several stories going on with too many characters with similar names to keep up with. So many L's in the Surete. I still feel like Nicol is annoying and hoped several times she would disappear.
In Fatal Grace CC De Poitiers who is universally hated is murdered during a curling match around Christmas. She is electrocuted in full view of everyone but no one sees anything. We meet some new colorful inhabitants of Three Pines but I missed Oliver and Gabri, even Peter and Clara were extremely supporting.
I will continue with this series but I enjoyed Still Life much better.
I've just started reading Louise Penny's series of books featuring Inspector Gamache. She is a good writer and she develops very interesting characters. I enjoy that a lot. Her description of a small Eastern district town near Montreal is very good, too. I have a slight familiarity with this area and it is spot on. I like the focus on plot and character development instead of descriptive violence. Sometimes I find I need to re-read a large section of a chapter because it gets a bit tedious in spots and I lose track of what is happening. I usually read in the evening before bed so perhaps I am at fault by getting drowsy, nonetheless I look forward to reading several more of the series to find out what ultimately happens with Inspector Gamache.
I enjoy Louise Penny’s mysteries of Three Pines and Inspector Gamache. Thus far I’ve read the first two in the series. A Fatal Grace is a story that keeps you guessing, with complexities involving family, marital, and work relationships adding to the interest of the story and to the wealth of positives this book offers its readers.

A four star is still a great rating in my opinion. There is plenty to think about and turn over in one’s mind, primarily regarding the array of characters, who they are and how they think, that can be character-building for the reader. It just lacks the potentially “life-changing” attribute of a five star book.

However, I will definitely be reading more of the Three Pines series, and I hope that Ms. Penny continues to share her talent.
