series so far It had everything I look for in these books Three Pines, snow lots of , Armand Gamache being his wonderful self, great police work, lots of excitement and a duck It was pretty essential to have read the previous books in order to get the most out of this one Some long standing plot lines were brought to a conclusion and the characters are so much better for having known them a long time Three Pines is a character in itself, especially at Christmas with log fires, hot chocolate and good friends.There was a lot of action and considerable suspense and by the last quarter of the book there was no way I was going to stop reading just because it was the middle of the night and I had to get up early I read through to the last delicious page and went to sleep happy While I enjoy a good series, there are few books that are part of a series that leave me with a book hangover when I am finished with them How the Light Get In left me with that hangover I finished it this afternoon, and since that time I ve not wanted to read anything I ve just wanted to live with the emotional reverberations this book created within me I have read the entire series, and I suspect that some of this reaction is a cumulative effect I ve spent a lot time with these characters While I enjoy a good series, there are few books that are part of a series that leave me with a book hangover when I am finished with them How the Light Get In left me with that hangover I finished it this afternoon, and since that time I ve not wanted to read anything I ve just wanted to live with the emotional reverberations this book created within me I have read the entire series, and I suspect that some of this reaction is a cumulative effect I ve spent a lot time with these characters, and there are many I care deeply about I suspect part of the reaction is that the book reads as though it may be the last in the series, and I m actually okay with that It ended perfectly, although not without pain and loss, grace and redemption What has drawn me to Penny s work all along is her profound belief that despite the darkness there is goodness and that there are people in the world who live that goodness even when it costs them much to do so A friend once bashed Inspector Gamache because he wasn t damaged enough to be interesting I argued that one does not have to be damaged to be interesting One only has to be authentic to be interesting, and Gamache is authentic He is not perfect, but he is true to himself and to his beliefs All of these elements darkness, goodness, grace, redemption, the struggle to be the authentic self weave through this book in ways both profound and subtle While some might say the ending Penny wrote is predictable and treat this predictability as a bad thing, I argue that the ending is one that is authentic to the world that Penny has created in this series and to the seeds of love, kindness, belief, and loyalty that Gamache has shown throughout the series In Penny s world, the light does get in, and, as always when I ve finished one of her novels, I want to live in that world of light I would give this book 10 stars orif I could When I was approved for the egalley, being the mature professional librarian that I am, I went up to one of my coworkers who also reads the series and basically said Nya Nya I got to read the book early That is the level of devotion that this entire series inspires in its readers.After the emotional ending of the previous book, I was prepared for this one to be heavy duty but I had no idea how much this emotion this book would evoke I liter I would give this book 10 stars orif I could When I was approved for the egalley, being the mature professional librarian that I am, I went up to one of my

the previous book, I was prepared for this one to be heavy duty but I had no idea how much this emotion this book would evoke I literally sat on my couch for hours barely able to take a breath because I was so caught up into the story Looking back at the previous books, one can see all of the clues leading up to the finish of this book but it is absolutely stunning to see how they all come together When this book begins, Gamache is seemingly hanging on by a thread His agents have been scattered all through the department and he has a group of disrespectful yahoos working for him But his enemies haven t won the war, only the first skirmish Gamache still has some fight left in him and he has friends in powerful places As in all of Ms Penny s books, there are side stories that seem to have no reflection on the main plot but everything, I mean everything is important Inspector Gamache gets involved in the disappearance of a woman who had visited Three Pines and planned to return but never showed up As he digs deeper into her life, he discovers facts about her life that will surprise all who knew her Readers over a certain age will remember the actual situation that inspired this story line and what a huge story it was in its day.Anyone who has followed this series will be crazy while reading this book, so just leave them alone and be prepared for a lot of emotion after they are done While one part of Gamache s life is resolved, the ending opens up a lot of questions about what the future holds for Gamache and all of us loyal readers For readers unfamiliar with Louise Penny s

her Quebec crime series my first being her last book, BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY , I was impressed with her ability to create multiple plots and weave them together There s a fresh murder to solve in the town of Three Pines where some of her series takes place , as well as an arc that started several books ago the malfeasance of the S ret du Qu bec police dept additionally, Armand s close colleague and personal friend, Jean Guy Beauvoir, is suffering from addiction problems.HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN takes us back to Three Pines, where I met several quirky eccentric people for the first time, but am well aware that they are repeating characters, or sometimes just former ones Penny does a solid job of bringing new readers into this small village and allowing us to meet the inhabitants naturally and unaffectedly She doesn t broadcast their histories with awkward exposition, but rather lets pieces of their past unfold with the present events That takes subtlety and finesse, something that Penny astutely possesses The truculent poet, Ruth, for example, may be on the periphery of a scene periodically, and then take center stage Penny juxtaposes scenes and events that progress the various plots and develop the characters with riveting tension.The murder of septuagenarian, Constance Pineault, who had just recently visited Three Pines bookstore owner, Myrna, brings Gamache back to investigate This is right before the Christmas holidays, where the deep snow and cold air tends to create gatherings at the warm village bistro At the same time, Gamache is struggling to keep his decimated homicide department together He has been undermined by Superintendent Sylvain Fran oeur, who has effectively fouled Gamache s reputation and is honing in for the final blow Armand s relationship with Jean Guy has also been maimed, thanks to Fran oeur and Jean Guy s torment with his own personal demons.Penny also devotes ample space to suspenseful cyber hacking, and does it nimbly and accessible to even the low tech reader My nails were bitten to the quick And she demonstrates the truth in human nature, as colleagues claw each other with raw vitriol, and yet show genuine compassion, too.Treachery suspense still voices moving targets exquisite plotting the reader will be satisfied AND nonplussed in equal measure by the end of the book I don t want to spoil this potent novel for anyone, but I will say that I am glad I read BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY first, because I was already involved before this book began, with a gestating inevitability that has been underpinning much of Gamache s current directives I am speculating that this is Penny s most heightened and cataclysmic book to date.As an end note, Penny tells us that the title of this book is based on a Leonard Cohen song called Anthem Ring the bells that still can ringForget your perfect offering,There s a crack in everything,That s how the light gets in Besides those beautiful words germane to the substance of this book, the title itself is apropos to one of the definitions of anthem a hymn sung alternately by different sections of a choir or congregation.An anthem it is
