***Blogger and I are still learning to get along these days. I accidentally 'published' this post, but it obviously wasn't ready for that. Let's try this again...with more content. Ha!
Hello book friends! How have you been? Hope all are well and staying buried in books and reading. That's what I've been doing mostly and I've read some good books. Several good books actually. Let me share about them.
I got caught up on Kelley Armstrong's Rockton series, which has 5 books right now and will have #6 in February. I read #3 This Fallen Prey, #4 Watcher in the Woods, and #5 Alone in the Wild. I really like this series which is set in the wilds of Canada, off the grid, and features Casey Duncan, her significant other Eric Dalton, and others. The reader learns more and more about Rockton and the people who live there and in the area. Crazy stuff.
On to the new Louise Penny book, #16 in her mystery series, and one I was really anticipating (I'm always anticipating Louise's new books!). Oh my word! I loved this book. I really did. I can say that about all this author's writing, but some books are special favorites and I think All the Devils Are Here will qualify for that with me. It is set almost entirely in Paris with the characters mostly being from Gamache's own family. That is not a bad thing for me, but I know that some of this author's fans mostly prefer for the setting to remain in Canada and Three Pines. However, in my opinion, it's good for Louise to take her characters out of the small village occasionally and some of my favorites are set in other spots. I mentioned that I attended an event virtually where Penny spoke about her work and she said that when she's outside of Three Pines, she is able to reveal more about Gamache and whoever is with him because she doesn't have to update so much about the many characters that reside in Three Pines - or not update as much. I can see that here.
