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.

A Fatal Grace

A Fatal Grace - Louise Penny

Not *quite* as well-constructed as the first volume in the series (Still Life), but still a very fine read.  Also, very cold (it's set in a Canadian winter), which was quite pleasant to read in all this hot weather we've been having.  (Seriously, 97 in mid-June is ... argh.  We've already had more days over 90 than all of last summer.)


I am already on to book three in this series (The Cruelest Month), and just have to say: Louise Penny is a fine mystery writer, and this series is recommended.
