How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny Book Summary

How the Light Gets In is the ninth Chief Inspector Gamache Novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny.

"There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in." —Leonard Cohen

Christmas is approaching, and in Québec it's a time of dazzling snowfalls, bright lights, and gatherings with friends in front of blazing hearths. But shadows are falling on the usually festive season for Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. Most of his best agents have left the Homicide Department, his old friend and lieutenant Jean-Guy Beauvoir hasn't spoken to him in months, and hostile forces are lining up against him. When Gamache receives a message from Myrna Landers that a longtime friend has failed to arrive for Christmas in the village of Three Pines, he welcomes the chance to get away from the city. Mystified by Myrna's reluctance to reveal her friend's name, Gamache soon discovers the missing woman was once one of the most famous people not just in North America, but in the world, and now goes unrecognized by virtually everyone except the mad, brilliant poet Ruth Zardo.

As events come to a head, Gamache is drawn ever deeper into the world of Three Pines. Increasingly, he is not only investigating the disappearance of Myrna's friend but also seeking a safe place for himself and his still-loyal colleagues. Is there peace to be found even in Three Pines, and at what cost to Gamache and the people he holds dear?

How the Light Gets InMy husband and I loved the first few books in this series: Wonderful characters, cozy village, mystery to solve. The most recent books have slowly become dark and sad, and not fun any more. I skipped through the last half of this book. Such a skilled author, but she got off the track, at least my track..Score: 3/5

A beautiful read. Suspense and enjoyment.Louise Penny's best..Score: 5/5

Absolutely riveting. Wonderful book.This is the latest in the series and brings together many of the plot points from previous novels. The action was intense and suspenseful. Gamache is an endearing, and well written character, although all the characters are interesting. I loved this book. I can't wait for the next one, I miss Gamache already!.Score: 5/5

How the Light Gets InIt was really good book but the bad language on that book. "How the Light Gets In" take place in Paris they speak an English accent just the movie "Mr. Bean's Holiday" (2007) and "Rush Hour 3" (2007), it's most likely in that book and the book takes place in Paris..Score: 4/5

How the Light Gets InLouise Penny paints such lovely pictures with words. This is the best one so far, but then I have said that about all of her books.

The bestHer best book……so far I read this one first, then went back to book 1. I just finished reading it again. Best book so far !.Score: 5/5

How the Light Gets InBoring, monotonous, tedious. I have read all Louise Penny's books, and I must say this one is not in the same class. Ganache only gives glimpse of his determined all-knowing assurances. Jean-Guy is less than a go-for. Clare is an erratic, insufferable, self centered spoiled brat. Only Ruth is her comforting reliable self. Too bad, after the last book I anticipated something more, much more..Score: 1/5

I want to live in Three PinesI love these books, and this latest offering is no exception. Brilliant work..Score: 5/5

Review. How the Light gets in...4:10am What I'm about to say is such a hackneyed cliche that I'm embarrassed to write it. Superb. Couldn't it down until I finished. Marilyn Lightstone.Score: 5/5
