How the Light Gets In
I have been a Louise Penny fan since I read her first book, and alway look forward to the latest book due to come out. I don't consider myself an easy reviewer, but I have to give this book 5 stars. I just read that the big four book review publications have all given the book starred reviews. The plot involves a mystery and past unresolved issues. Insp Gamache is in the middle of personal and professional turmoil. The mystery is a missing friend of Myrna the bookseller at Three Pines The ending of Beautiful Mystery left unresolved issues and those issues are also involved in the plotline.
Louise Penny shows how a classical mystery can be structured to show emotion and drama. Her characters are so believable that you would like to sit with them, or in some cases not. She is now being compared with P D James and Ruth Rendell and seems to, if possible, get better with each book. I read this in 2 days, now I have to wait another year. I am giving book to my daughter and will be anxious to discuss with her. I got her hooked on these books.
