Lisa's Review: The Nature of the Beast

The Nature of the Beast by Louise Penny

My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 11th book in the Chief Inspector Gamache series. Armand and Reine Marie Gamache have retired to Three Pines, but that doesn't mean they've retired from being involved in murder investigations (after all, they are in Thee Pines!).

Laurent Lepage is a nine year old in Three Pines who has a huge imagination and tells very tall tales. When he disappears, people begin to wonder if there was truth behind his latest claim of finding a gun as big as a house in the woods.

I always love a Louise Penny book, that is never a question when I pick one up. I was a little wary as I got into this one as the plot seemed to be a little far fetched. However, in addition to tying all the plot together, the notes she has at the end of the book were eye opening.

This is my 7th book read for the 12th Annual Canadian Reading Challenge.


  1. I thought the history in this one was fascinating!

    1. I agree Mary! After finishing, I found myself doing additional research on the interwebs...and found myself saying 'I had no idea!'.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
