Everytime I start reading a Louise Penny novel I am confronted with a dilemma Do I read it uickly because really I don t want to put it down or do I read it slowly because I don t want it to end How does she do it This is the 15th I the Three Pines series and it keeps getting better and better In this one I my opinion she outdid herself combining some important issues of the day with an outstanding difficult to solve mystery The issues of climate change abuse and the devastation it causes and the good and bad of social media All combined seamlessly in the lives of various members of the community we have come to love She shows us the many depths of personality that can live inside one person Characteristics based on the past the present life experiences that make us the people we are She shows us friendship love respect integrity compassion kindness and the struggle to know when to hold on and when to let go Ratchets up the tension and then fits in some appropriate humor that makes us laugh Oddly enough a new character comes to Three Pines and affects the future of one member This was a particularly emotional entry in the series as one chapter closes and a new one begins And now I am resolved as I await the next in this stellar seriesThat twisted reality until malice and truth were intertwined and indistinguishableARC from Minotaur books
