An avid skier and runner, Catherine’s novels, SPIN, ARRANGED and FORGOTTEN, are all international bestsellers.

Louise Penny is The New York Times and Globe and Mail bestselling author of eight previous Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novels. She has been awarded the John Creasey Dagger, Nero, Macavity and Barry Awards, as well as two each of the Arthur Ellis and Dilys Awards. Additionally, Louise has won four Anthony Awards and five Agatha Awards, the most recent for The Beautiful Mystery, which debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list and was named one of year's best crime novels by Booklist.
J’Adore Paris by Isabelle Lafleche is an exhilarating journey through high fashion, the war against fake consumer goods, and the irresistible realm of Parisian luxury. When chic Parisian lawyer Catherine Lambert lands her dream job as intellectual property director of Christian Dior, she is on top of the world. But Catherine’s visions of front-row seats at the couture shows and strolling the Champs-Elysees hand in hand with the love of her life are soon displaced by the realities of dingy police vans and threatening anonymous phone calls.
Hidden, by Catherine Mckenzie explores the complexity of relationships, our personal choices and the responsibilities we have to the ones we love. While walking home from work one evening, Jeff Manning is struck by a car and killed. Not one but two women fall to pieces at the news: his wife, Claire, and his co-worker Tish. Reeling from her loss, Claire must comfort her grieving son and contend with funeral arrangements, well-meaning family members and the arrival of Jeff’s estranged brother—her ex-boyfriend—Tim.
How the Light Get’s in by Louise Penny finds Chief Inspector Armand Gamache receiving a message from Myrna Landers that a long time friend has failed to arrive for Christmas in the village of Three Pines. Gamache welcomes the chance to get away from the city as most of his best agents have left the Homicide Department, his old friend lieutenant Jean-Guy Beauvoir hasn’t spoken to him in months. Mystified by Myrna's reluctance to reveal her friend's name, Gamache soon discovers the missing woman was once one of the most famous people not just in North America, but in the world, and now goes unrecognized by virtually everyone except the mad, brilliant poet Ruth Zardo.
Also, Louise Penny has created a Three Pines Inspirational map of the Eastern Townships. The map will lead you through North Hatley, Georgeville, Saint-Benoit-du-Lac, Knowlton, Sutton and Stanbridge East. Along the way you will find Gabri’s Bistro, Myrna’s bookstore and the old Hadley house. Well... at least as close as you can get outside of the books. You can see a realization of Jane’s painting from Louise’s first book Still Life on display at the Brome County Historical Society or have lunch in the rose garden of Manoir Bellechasse, really the Hovey Manor. You can pick up a Three Pines cafe au lait mug or a Vive Gamache tote bag at Brome Lake Books or some fresh croissants from La Rumeur Affamee. It’s a great way to explore the Townships and a great way to get closer to Three Pines.
