One Week!!

Sunny, cool, temps 14

A chilly morning here in southern Quebec - can begin to feel autumn in the air.

One week from today THE BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY will be published! I'll be in Naperville, Illinois, (not far from Chicago), at Anderson's Bookshop, for the official launch. Love to see you there, on August 28th - 7pm. And, in celebration and anticipation, we have the last excerpt from the previous books in the Gamache series....today, A TRICK OF THE LIGHT....and once again, I've chosen two short quotes from the book -

"Not for the first time Three Pines struck Myrna as the equivalent of the Humane Society. Taking in the wounded, the unwanted. The mad, the sore. This was a shelter. Though, clearly, not a no-kill shelter.”

And, later in A TRICK OF THE LIGHT -

“She sat forward, curious to see how Clara would handle this attack. Because that was what it was. Civil and subtle and said with a smile. A sort of social neutron bomb. Meant to keep the structures of polite conversation standing, while slaying the person.”

One more week to THE BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY - Wow, suddenly it seems so soon.

See you at the pre-launch saturday.
Comme toujours, j'ai très hate d'avoir votre nouveau livre entre les mains.
I have a party saturday night but I know what I'll do on sunday.

I can't wait. I would have to say this is one of my most eagerly anticipated books this year!

I wish I could be at the launch, it would be a thrill to meet you. I have read all of your books and have loved them.

I often recommend your books to our library patrons.

Best wishes on a successful tour.
