Book Beginnings: A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny


Here is the first sentence for "A Fatal Grace" by Louise Penny, for Book Beginnings at Rose City Reader.
"Had C.C. de Poitiers known she was going to be murdered she might have bought her husband, Richard, a Christmas gift."
On page 56 for Friday 56 at Fredas Voice is:
"I suggest we give each other our unsolved cases and spend a few days reading over them. See if we can find something."
This is the second book in the series and I enjoyed the first one. The detective is Inspector Gamache and he works in a small town in Quebec.

I did read and love this one, after I read the first one. Thanks for reminding me that I want to read more in this series. I love Gamache!

Here's mine: “I’VE GOT SAND IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES”

I shall look out for these - I am always on the lookout for a new author.

I haven't heard of A Fatal Grace before. I do like the writing from the beginning and the 56. :-)

I love this author! I'm reading The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny right now. I had missed it somehow so I am happy to find one I haven't read. On page 2, "The terrible force has destroyed everything in its way. The Old World and the New. All gone. Except...." Happy reading! Hugs!

LOL Sounds mean.
Happy Labor day weekend!

I need to check out this series. I need a new one!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

That's a strange and kind-of funny beginning. I'm wondering who is telling the story.
This sounds like a series I'd enjoy.
My Friday post features BAREFOOT AT SUNSET.

Hello, I found your blog through The Weaver of Grass. I saw that you were featuring a Louise Penny novel. She is one of my favourite authors. I have read all of her books and am eagerly awaiting the next one. Her descriptions are wonderful. I hope you enjoy this book. -Jenn
