We adore Louise Penny and we’re not the only ones—her tenth and most personal Chief Inspector Gamache novel, THE LONG WAY HOME, has received two pre-pub starred reviews!

“As with all the author’s other titles, Penny wraps her mystery around the history and personality of the people involved. By this point in the series, each inhabitant of Three Pines is a distinct individual, and the humor that lights the dark places of the investigation is firmly rooted in their long friendships, or, in some cases, frenemyships. The heartbreaking conclusion will leave series readers blinking back tears.” Library Journal, starred review

“As always, Penny dexterously combines suspense with psychological drama, overlaying the whole with an all-powerful sense of landscape as a conduit to meaning. Another gem from the endlessly astonishing Penny.” Booklist, starred review

“Perceptive…perfectly paced… The prose is remarkably fresh, filled with illuminating and delightful turns of phrase.” — Publishers Weekly

While the e-galley isn’t up on Edelweiss, it is available on NetGalley via super secret special request! To be pre-approved for an e-galley, please email with the subject “Long Way Home.”
