STILL LIFE, the book started a new series by a Canadian author, Louise Penny many years ago. STILL LIFE, A THREE PINES MYSTERY movie came out this year after 9 more books had followed Chief Inspector Armand Garmache’s investigations around Three Pines which is near Montreal, Canada. This year another book was released to the thousands of waiting fans of the Three Pines mysteries!
What makes this book and movie so special is Louise Penny! She develops characters that are so real and believable in a town that doesn’t exist, but it does in your heart! You really should start with book 1, Still Life and read them in secession, because each book “stars” someone in the Three Pines population that is involved in the mystery. Each time you finish a book you can’t wait to get the next one because some story threads carry through several books before ending.
The great joy of seeing the movie (DVD, Acorn, available Amazon.com) is that after reading about the book about the town and characters, you get to see what the “real town and people look like”!!! Spoiler alert…………..not all characters look like I thought they would/should! Perhaps you’ll have better luck!
All in all, I can’t think of a better way to spend your money and time! Now get to it!
