A wedding anniversary celebration for Armand and Reine-Marie and a family reunion at Manoir Bellechasse for the Morrow family bring Louise Penny's familiar characters back to beautiful Three Pines and along with the characters comes a murder.
The Morrow family is known to not have much love for each other. When a marble statue is brought into the pristine landscape, questions are raised about why it is there. A thunderstorm brings a tragic surprise to mar the statue's meaning.
A RULE AGAINST MURDER is another well-written book with Louise Penny's beautiful, detailed writing that puts you right into the book and the scenes. You can feel yourself swimming in the lake, walking through the gardens, enjoying the evening chats, indulging in the delicious meals, and being drawn into the tension and murder investigation.
We follow Armand as he investigates the murder of Julia Morrow and find things out about the Morrow family.
A RULE AGAINST MURDER has a title that is significant to the owners of Manoir Bellechasse. They say there is a rule against murder in their place of business...no hunting or anything to do with death. This murder was very upsetting to them as well as the guests and family members.
This is an earlier book of Louise Penny, but no matter what book it is, you are never disappointed with her story line and exquisite writing style.
This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
