Louise Penny, Chief Inspector Gamache series, starts with Still Life. The characterizations, and scenery are wonderfully written. They are Mysteries and the people in the town of Three Pines outside of Quebec are quirky, you will love them and they reappear in future books. Several of her books have won major prizes. The last one out is The Beautiful Mystery and takes place among monks in a monastery. I always hate to see each one end so I try to read them slower than others.

J Boggs,
Can you tell me more about the Louise Penny "Inspector Gamache" series - I've read the e-sample of "Still Life" from amazon, but it's not very informative. I'd like to know about the main recurring characters, and how they relate to each other in general.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Inspector Gamache is from the Surete and finding the murderer. The little town of Three Pines contains an artist couple, a poet, two gay men running the cafe and inn. Others move in and out. The inspector is a kind and intelligent man teaching other inspectors how to listen. It is an absolutely wonderful series, and has won awards. Louise Penny also has a web site and authors page and sends newletters.

My top re-read series: In Death by J D Robb There's always one open somewhere in the house.

Other series: Cynsters by Laurens, esp. the first 7 (what can I say, I love when Chillingham realizes his major mistake!) Dragons of Pern by McCaffrey. Andre Norton's Witch World. Club Shadowlands by Cherise Sinclair. Dark series by Feehan. And the Sister's series, but I forget the name. Not her Shadows (games?) series. I know there are others, but the mind goes.

Authors with specific books, but not really series: Krentz/Quick/Castle, Lowell/Maxwell, Howard, Grace, Burrowes, Heyer, Austen, Balogh, Sarah McCarty, Sinclair, more Andre Norton, more McCaffrey, and more here, but they just won't come to mind!

--- For me the most re-read are - In Death series by JD Robb , Psy Changeling series by Nalini Singh, Archangel Series by Nalini Singh, Lisa Kleypas' historicals, Nora Roberts - Birthright , Black Rose, Sea Swept. And books by Krentz/Quick/Castle.
Hi KC,
I too always have one JD Robb open somewhere in the house ! :) Most re-read series. I do like the Cynsters as well as the Bastion club ( esp the first one ... :) )
I was interested in some authors that I have not tried - could you suggest some "best" of their books to start with ?
- Sarah McCarty
- Lowell/Maxwell
- Grace Burrowes

I presume Dragons of Pern by McCaffrey. Andre Norton's Witch World are the best books to start those authors with ?

Tx ...

KC says:
Hi, Vdy; for McCaffrey, I consider her Dragons of Pern series her best work, altho' others would disagree with me. I also love her Killashandra series, but the Dragons are tops. Not that happy with the most recent ones that she's been writing with her son, etc, but they're okay.

Andre; depends on what you want, she has a very wide range of books and often gets classed as YA; another one I disagree with. I truly mourn her death; she got me hooked into the sword & sorcery side of SciFi. Witch World was the first book of hers that I bought, but I own everything, altho' I've drawn the line as they keep re-issuing/re-packaging the short stories. Daybreak 2250 is considered one of her best stand-alones, originally published as Star Man's Son.

On both series, start with the first book; Dragonflight for McCaffrey & Witch World for Norton. And now I have an urge to go dip back into one of those worlds...

Sarah McCarty; she is erotic romance and I don't know how you feel about that. I just finished her Shadow Wranglers series (and want more!) & have started her Hell's Eight series.

Grace Burrowes: new author but has a series based on a Regency (I think) era family, all the legitimate & illegitimate brothers & sisters are getting books. First: The Heir, then The Soldier, then The Virtuoso...and so forth. I had a bit of trouble with The Soldier, but inhaled The Heir & The Virtuoso, and Lady Maggie's Secret Scandal. The new ones are on pre-order.

Elizabeth Lowell/Ann Maxwell: I started with her as Elizabeth Lowell back in the 80's in Silhouette Desire & Intimate Moment stories. Yes, dated, but I still love them. Her Medieval Series (Untamed, Forbidden, Enchanted), The Donovans (contemporary) Only... (Western Historical) I love; others don't. What I love most about her; her descriptions. One of her early Desire's hooked me on weaving & I still weave, mostly tapestry. Her most recent novels have a very dark view of our world (they're all contemporary), but the men and women are still strong & honorable (the good guys, not the bad ones). Silk & Shadow is very good as a stand alone, altho' it's a bit of a series tie-in. Some of her Silhouette Intimate Moments have been "expanded" a touch & re-issued under new names. I didn't think they needed it, but I still have them...

Get me going & I'll talk forever about my fav's. I may have given you more than you wanted. Oh well, give them a try & let me know how you do. Enjoy!
