The Finneys/Morrows are textbook dysfunctional, from their treatment of one another through to the odd way in which one of the children is kept isolated from others.

You would think that something terrible must have happened to her like to Lisbeth Salander for her to act like that. A thoroughly enjoyable murder mystery with many, intriguing, layers of human experiences intertwined.It is generally nice to be reflected and read "runners" and "icing", instead of "sneakers" and "frosting.

The character of Bean himself draws attention to him/herself only to disappoint readers that he/she was of no particular significance other than proving a philosophical point and a roof top ending. They were all jealous of each other and felt that each of them received a greater amount of their father’s love and attention than s/he deserved. Hmm, I think I wanted a break from Three Pines which it was but not totally as you will see if you read this one.As old wounds are discussed, some amount of understanding and healing begins to seep in to this family, who have for so long misunderstood one another, as well as their father’s intentions. When I came to Minotaur as a publicist in 2008, I was told that soon I’d begin working with the talented Louise Penny. While it ends with sorrow and sadness, the final item is revealed when the Pandora's box is opened at last.

The Gamaches seem so at home in the splendid, isolated Manoir, with its beautiful robber-baron-era main building and its spectacular lake. There is also a lot more revealed about Gamache’s background, his childhood and upbringing, which adds an extra, welcome layer to the novel and the series. Fair, lovely, and charming, she married a wealthy man, but is undergoing a divorce after his fraudulent investment practices came to light, and caused a very public scandal.

I listened to A Rule Against Murder by Louise Penny, narrated by Adam Sims and published by Hachette Audio UK via OverDrive. I couldn't smell all the delicious food and drink that they consume four or five times a day without gaining weight. What I find saddest is that I think that Peter loves Clara, but I don’t know if he will be able to be with her. It becomes clear that the Morrow’s and the Finney’s family portraits could well serve as a portrayal for the Oxford Illustrated Dictionary definition of “dysfunctional”. Penny releases some essential backstory again in this piece, balancing his ever-evolving relationship with Reine-Marie against some tidbits about his parents, who were killed when he was just a child.

The name originated in the Sudan and is used to describe winds that occur in arid regions throughout the world including the Aribian peninsula, Kuwait, Australia, and parts of the United States. When he spends a rare day off in Three Pines with Reine-Marie, he discovers the answer to the puzzle of the statue: Sugar had been placed between the statue and its base, making it easier to move. The whole “Gamache as a Burgher of Calais” moment is to remind the reader that Gamache is Canadian Jesus. Hence she bathed baby Julia in the same sink at the manoir she uses as an elderly woman and ALLOW Charles to think her tears are of joy and not pain.In a heart-stopping climax, Gamache, the murderer, and Bean are at the top of the steep copper roof of the Manoir. The Morrow offspring have ambiguous feelings about this (paid for) honor, but, as always, they defer to their controlling mother.
