About A World of Curiosities

According to the Amazon description, the new book is about:

Nothing is ever quiet in Three Pines. It’s spring and Three Pines is reemerging after the harsh winter. But not everything buried should come alive again. Not everything lying dormant should reemerge. But something has. As the villagers prepare for a special celebration, Armand Gamache and Jean-Guy Beauvoir find themselves increasingly worried. A young man and woman have reappeared in the Sûreté du Québec investigators’ lives after many years. The two were young children when their troubled mother was murdered, leaving them damaged, shattered. Now they’ve arrived in the village of Three Pines.

About Louise Penny

Louise Penny, born in Toronto, received a Bachelor of Applied Arts degree in Radio and Television from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute, presently known as Ryerson University, and was a former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation journalist. During this time, Louise faced some personal issues with alcohol and eventually turned to writing after she met her husband Michael Whitehead. Louise didn’t start with mystery writing, initially writing a historical novel.

She took three years to write her first book, and a couple more to find a publisher. Since then, as a look at Louise Penny books in order will reveal, she’s treated fans to a new one nearly every year. Of her characters, “I had to love them. I created a village where I would live, populated with characters I would befriend and a main character I would marry,” Louise Penny told The New York Times in 2018.

About the Series

Since the publication of “Still Life,” the first, in 2005, Penny’s cozy mystery world populated by residents of Three Pines, a snowy but warmhearted village in Quebec, has made friends around the globe, as the books have been translated into 23 languages, plus Quebec French.

Inspector Gamache is the head of the homicide department set in Three Pines, Quebec. He is the Chief Inspector of Sûreté du Québec, the provincial police force for the province of Quebec in Canada.

Collaboration With Hillary Clinton

Louise Penny’s last published book was State of Terror, a book she wrote in collaboration with Hillary Clinton. While not part of the Inspector Gamache book series, the plot involves “a secretary of state and a weakened nation,” according to The New York Times. The book was released in October 2021.
