Book Beginning & Friday 56: A Trick of the Light by Louise Penny



Oh, no, no, no, thought Clara Morrow as she walked towards the closed doors.

-- A Trick of the Light by Louise Penny. This is the seventh book in Penny's Chief Inspector Gamache series, set in Quebec and centered around the charming but deadly village of Three Pines. I love the series and have some catching up to do, since the 14th book just came out, Kingdom of the Blind.

Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.


TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.


Peter lay in bed, clutching the edge of their double mattress. The bed was too small for them really, but a double had been all they could afford when they were first married, and Peter and Clara had grown used to having each other close.

I'm guestimating that this is about 56% of the way through the audiobook. I've read the first seven books of the series with my ears because Ralph Cosham has read all the audiobooks so far and does a great job.

I am so far behind with Louise Penny, I did love the one in the snow/college, but I can't for the life of me remember what that was called lol

That is quite an ominous beginning. I've never read this series. This week I am featuring the best YA I've read so far this year - Past Perfect Life by Elizabeth Eulberg. Happy reading!

Glad you're enjoying the series. Hope you can get caught up in time for Book 15!

I really need to start at the beginning with Penny's series. I have read one book--somewhere in the middle--and loved it. I hope you are enjoying this one!
