With the birth of their daughter Annie’s baby due soon the Gamache’s head to Paris for a family reunion with both their children, their families and Armand’s godfather Stephen Horowitz. After dining one evening Stephen departs on his own and while crossing the street gets run down by a van, seemingly intentionally.
Loved the setting and the history in this installment, which told me more of Armand’s backstory than I knew or remembered! This was a story of family relationships, very different from some in the series although still a puzzling whodunit. Since I’m not a huge fan of the Three Pines neighbors I’d count this a particular Penny favorite.
