Why did I read this book now? I want to move to Three Pines

 It's so hard to review a Louise Penny book without taking away from the prospective reader's upcoming experience.   Her stories are a delight to every sense - physical and mental.  I've read every book in this series - most of them 2 or 3 times, and I never fail to put it down with a feeling of regret that the story has come to an end.

The newest installment GLASS HOUSES is scheduled for publication next week.  Once again, the gracious Ms. Penny has graced me by allowing me an advance peek.  I resisted temptation as long as I could, but will confess I've already read this one twice and have pre-ordered the audio so I can download that from Audible next week.  I will not do any spoilers here. I will simply say that this author manages to surprise me with every book. The characters are becoming more like family, and the setting Three Pines definitely shines in this one. The plot is complex and very very different.

Once again I am left wanting to turn back to the beginning and read it again and again. STUNNING. Vive Gamache!
