BOOK BEGINNINGS: STILL LIFE by LOUISE PENNY 27.5.16


~
STILL LIFE by Canadian author, Louise Penny
Publisher: Sphere / Hachette UK
1st published 2005
~
My
FRIDAY BOOK BEGINNINGS 
feature for this final Friday of May!
The opening sentence or two of my book of choice?
~
" Miss Jane Neal met her maker in the early morning mist
of Thanksgiving Sunday.  It was pretty much a surprise all round.
Miss Neal's was not a natural death , unless you're of the belief everything happens as it's supposed to.  If so, for her seventy-six years Jane Neal had been walking toward this final moment when death met her in the brilliant maple woods on the verge of the village of Three Pines. "
~

Thoughts?

At last.  I have finally received the first in series of Chief Inspector Gamache. I was ready to go back to the beginnings with this novel.
And I became more connected to the residents of the
rural Quebec village in Canada as I joined in their
Thanksgiving celebrations, art show  preparations, and village life.
Moving on through the series will benefit from these
character introductions.  Looking forward to the storytelling...

I've found these Book Beginnings and Book quotes to be avenues of introduction. Whether new finds or not,
a great way to explore and possibly discover new books and their

Poor Miss Neal! Unnatural how? Did the turkey get her before she could get it? ;-) Have a great weekend! I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine... http://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviewsTUIB

I love both the beginning and the 56. This is a series that I've really been wanting to read but haven't because I haven't gotten my hands on this one yet. I hope you enjoy it!
