Glass Houses is simply Louise Penny's best book (so far). Beginning with the strange, hooded figure simply standing on the village green of Three Pines, I was captivated. Penny's writing is lyrical, her characters treated with love and acceptance (flaws and all) and her mystery plot extremely well-done. Once started, I wanted to keep reading straight through, but at the same time, I wanted to savor the writing and the story. Now I have finished it and it did not disappoint. This is a book I will be reading again, while anticipating the next in the series. ( )

The less said the better since I don't want to give anything away, so my review will be very brief. I will say fans of this series will not be disappointed, this one may well be the best so far. A hard thing to accomplish in series of this length. Gamache will put everything on the line. Something old will be mixed with a current scourge in many countries, has reached epidemic proportions, and is hurting and has hurt many. Ruth, my favorite, and her duck get a somewhat larger role and more of her poetry is quoted. It will all come down to who did what where and who knew what when. So, so good, very suspenseful and as always the characters of Three Pines will pull together. There is after all a great deal of love in this little town and a great deal of good. Remember to read the afterward, it is poignant and awe inspiring.

ARC from Netgalley. ( )

Full review to come later. No spoilers. Just that every time I think Louise Penny can't up the intensity she raises the bar. A roller coaster of a ride that plays with your emotions until the shattering conclusion. I need a stiff drink and plenty of croissants now. ( )
