Easter is being celebrated in a way that only a small village like Three Pines can celebrate - with dinner parties, hiding wooden Easter eggs on the village green, and a seance. Gabri, the owner of the bed and breakfast has booked a witch to perform a seance and the town regulars decide to hold it at the old Hadley house- the spooky, dilapidated mansion on the hill overlooking the town. But what they don't expect is for someone to die of fright. Or is it murder? Chief Inspector Armand Gamache arrives to put his considerable powers of detection on the case, along with his investigative team. Louise Penny always creates a wonderful sense of place with delicious food, atmosphere and surrounds the reader with characters that I'd like to call friends. They're funny, artistic and always willing to help a neighbor, even when it involves murder. Read all of the Three Pines mysteries to capture a wonderous world in fiction.
