Welcome to Three Pines, where the cruelest month is about to deliver on its threat. It's spring in the tiny, forgotten village of Three Pines. Buds are on the trees, and the first flowers are struggling through the newly thawed earth. But not everything is meant to return to life. When some villagers decide to celebrate Easter with a séance at the Old Hadley House, they are hoping to rid the town of its evil--until one of their party dies of fright.

Louise Penny is a fine writer. But her skill lies not in the mysteries that she formulates, but rather in her portraits of human relationships. In this book, Penny explores the sometimes toxic nature of love and friendship. She helps us to see that within what we consider to be our closest relationships there is love, hate, desire, co-dependence, anger, and so much more. Penny achieves this feat in a well plotted mystery that keeps the reader engaged until the end.

Another great Louise Penny novel! Gamache and Beauvoir's relationship gets more intricate and complex at every turn.

Finally, more back story! I was not very surprised how this one turned out, but I was waiting for certain things to happen. I was very glad things finally came together, though it was quite sad. I like the Gamaches and felt their bewilderment of being attacked. I like that Niko is out of the shadows and can be herself. However, the Three Pines portion of the murder story, that was the backdrop for the problems Gamache is having in the department, was not very intricate. I am glad to see that the villagers want to confront the Hadley House, but I didn't care too much about who killed Madeline. Also, I never learned what happened with Clara's painting...? Did the critic like it?
