If you’re a fan of Louise Penny’s Inspector Armand Gamache series like we are, then you know that the village of Three Pines is fictional and can’t be found on a map. BUT it’s inspired by real places and Louise finally reveals where they are in a countdown leading up to the publication of her newest Gamache book, THE NATURE OF THE BEAST (on sale August 25).
Every two weeks GamacheSeries.com will reveal a real place that is the inspiration behind a fictional place in each of Louise’s books. Each post will include photos, an essay, and an area open for discussion.
