SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

Damn You, Louse Penny

How the Light Gets In - Louise Penny

I stayed up all night because I could not put this book down.  I read it in one sitting.  Looked up at the clock at one point, saw it was a perfectly ghastly hour, and didn't care.  Had to finish book!


So damn you, Louise Penny! I could have used some sleep.


This series is just getting better and better.  She's gone on the auto-buy list.  Nine books in this series I've read, all excellent reads.


I kind of want to move to Three Pines, Quebec, now.  If it weren't for the dead bodies thing, naturally.


(Note: this is a series to read in order.  Most characters in both the Surete of Quebec and in Three Pines are recurring, and important things happen to them over the course of the series.  Still Life is the first one.)
