The Long Way Home (Chief Inspector Gamache Novel #10) by Louise Penny
The Long Way Home (Chief Inspector Gamache Novel #10)

Karla Hornbrook, September 14, 2014

If you have not read the Canadian author Louise Penny you are missing a wonderful reading journey. Her Inspector Gamache series is superb. The latest mystery, A Long Way Home, came out if September. It didn't have the same kind excitement as the last two in the series, but I still couldn't put it down. The great character of Inspector Gamache is working even in retirement. Her character development is excellent and the mystery keeps you guessing until the end. This is a series that I would strongly recommend reading in order, not only do the mysteries build on each other but it allows the reader to watch the author develop as a writer. Beware once you start, you will want to read all of them!

Mudbound by Hillary Jordan

This is a riveting story of race, courage, and the struggles of life post-WWII in the South. The author pulls you in quickly and brings you to tears more than once. It is a reminder of good and bad, love and hate and how they fit together.
