It's bittersweet to finish the latest Gamache book. I have loved every one of them. when it started out transported to France, I was wondering if Lousie Penny could make up for leaving all of the 3 Pines characters at home. She did and more so. There were enough tidbits about them to keep them connected to the story but not in a way that I felt she was catering to the reader by repeating too many of the details. This probably caused new readers to the series some confusion but hopefully it was enough to get them to go back and read (or better yet) listen to the whole series. The narrated books bring a richness to the stories. This isn't always the case with some narrators but the two great narrators that were selected more than do the books justice.
