What a fun book! It took me awhile to figure out that the policeman is the main character, so other books in this series would be set in different towns. Duh! One of the local citizens, Jane Neal, was found on a Sunday morning having been murdered at the edge of the woods that surround the Canadian village of Three Pines. An arrow seemed to have been the murder weapon. I learned a bit about the whole bow and arrow culture, which was nice. This seems to be an artist colony, with nice, intelligent, artsy characters. My one objection to the book is that a couple of threads were left loose. And I figured out early on whodunit. I didn't have a motive, mind you, but when has that ever stopped me before?
