A New York Times Notable Crime Book and Favorite Cozy for 2011 A Publishers Weekly Best Mystery/Thriller books for 2011 "Penny has been compared to Agatha Christie [but] it sells her short. Her characters are too rich, her grasp of nuance and human psychology too firm...." --Booklist (starred review) "Hearts are broken," Lillian Dyson carefully underlined in a book. "Sweet relationships are dead." But now Lillian herself is dead. Found among the bleeding hearts and lilacs of Clara Morrow's garden in Three Pines, shattering the celebrations of Clara's solo show at the famed Musée in Montreal. Chief Inspector Gamache, the head of homicide at the Sûreté du Québec, is called to the tiny Quebec village and there he finds the art world gathered, and with it a world of shading and nuance, a world of shadow and light. Where nothing is as it seems. Behind every smile there lurks a sneer. Inside every sweet relationship there hides a broken heart. And even when facts are slowly exposed, it is no longer clear to Gamache and his team if what they've found is the truth, or simply a trick of the light.
Publishers Weekly Review

Louise Penny is a favorite author. Her stories never disappoint and I am always grateful to reconnect with "old friends" each time a new book is released. I cannot wait until August for her new book. She is a truly gifted writer who carries me along and I live in the story.
A trick of light
Already waiting for next book Awesome
So much more than a mystery
I hope anyone not familiar with Ms Penny's novels goes back and reads from the beginning, It is only then that I believe you can truly love this journey we are on. On it's own, Trick of the Light is still brilliant, but having the privilege of understanding all the nuances of the characters makes it oh so much better.
