Why this book?:
It's the next in the series. There's another coming out soon and I hope to catch up.
There's been another murder in Three Pines. In Clara Morrow's garden, no less. But does it have something to do with art? Something to do with Clara? Or is it something else altogether?
So this book addresses the subject of addiction. You may know by now that addiction is not a favorite topic. It bothers and frustrates me on so many levels.
But of course addiction isn't the only topic of discussion in this book. Also brought out are faith, hope, change, jealousy, despair, relationships. Really when it comes to the span of human emotions, characteristics, and conditions, Louise Penny seems to hit most of them.
Anyway, regarding the characters...
Peter and Clara are having a rough time, but I have hope for them.
Olivier is adjusting to being free and back in Three Pines. And it is an adjustment for him and everyone around him.
And Beauvoir. Oh Beauvoir. Why'd he have to be like that? Why's he have to go from being a favorite to what he is in this book. I was so aggravated with his character in this book.
Anyway, I've already started the next book, The Beautiful Mystery.
