The Murder Stone by Louise Penny #BookReview #Mystery #mgtab


It’s the height of summer, and the wealthy Finney family have gathered at the Manoir Bellechasse to pay tribute to their late father.

 

 

The Murder Stone

 

 

But as the temperature rises, old secrets and bitter rivalries begin to surface. When the heat wave boils over into a mighty storm, a dead body is left in its wake.

Chief Inspector Gamache, a guest at the Bellechasse, finds himself with a building full of suspects. With the hotel locked down, the murderer is trapped. But a cornered predator is always the most dangerous of all…

 

 

 

 

My Review

What can I say? I’m in love with Inspector Gamache!

Here’s a line that best describes him:

But what was most striking were his eyes. Deep, warm brown. He carried calm with him as other men wore cologne.

A man to trust.

Louise Penny has such an amazing style of writing. She draws vivid pictures with just a few simple words. Like this sentence about one of the guests at the Manoir Bellechasse:

Her clothes seemed to have a grudge against her and either slipped off or scrunched around awkwardly so that she was constantly rearranging herself, pulling and tugging and wriggling.

So visual.

This story is set around a recurring character in the Chief Inspector Gamache series, Peter Morrow and his dysfunctional family, the Finneys.

When Peter’s sister, Julia Martin, is found murdered under the fallen marble statue of her beloved father, it sets off a string of lies and recriminations that leave the inspector and his team scratching their heads.

There’s a surprise twist at the end that I didn’t see coming and so much fresh writing I could go on for days!

If you’re looking for an excellent author I highly recommend this series!

I give The Murder Stone 5+ lovely kisses

  1. I’ve heard of her before and her inspector, but have never read any of her novels. I looked this one up on Amazon and for some reason it is “no longer available.” I might have to try one of the others!
