  "A trip to fantasyland" by billieparrott (see profile) 09/03/14

At lot of this book is set in a village in Canada that had fantasy-like images for almost every single member of our group. There are many levels of mystery to the story, and all were interesting and provided lively discussion topics. We vary in age, and those of us that are older were surprised that some members had never heard of the Dionne quints. So that opened up another avenue of discussion. Though we might not be readers of series for the most part, several of us were interested in following the main character in this book. There were many very interesting characters with well developed backgrounds that left you with a feeling of actually having spent some time with them. All in all, just a nice book.

  "How the Light Gets In" by markokopp1 (see profile) 04/24/15

This book made me a fan of Louise Penny. I\\\'m not usually a reader of mysteries, but I am now. The main character, Inspector Gamache, is human, flawed, smart and a man I would like to know. The ins and outs, twists and turns keep you turning the pages. Have fun!!

  "how the light gets in" by Carolynr (see profile) 07/31/18

never thought i would read more than one or two of these books - couldn't figure out how i could keep reading about the same characters. But this series has me hooked. this was the best one yet!!
the only reason i don't suggest it for a book club is because it doesn't stand on its own....should read from the beginning of the series.
