Still Life
by Louise Penny



Still Life is Louise Penny’s first crime novel. Louise Penny (Canadian Author, born 1958) has now written 10 plus books and received numerous awards for her writing. This particular story is beautifully woven as the characters unfold. The setting is Thanksgiving Sunday in Quebec. To locals, the village is a safe haven. So they are bewildered when a well-loved member of the community is found lying dead in the maple woods. Surely it was an accident - a hunter's arrow gone astray. Who could want Jane Neal dead?

In a long and distinguished career with the Sûreté du Quebec, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has learned to look for snakes in Eden. Gamache knows something dark is lurking behind the white picket fences, and if he watches closely enough, Three Pines will begin to give up its secrets…

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows


The charming historical novel written by Mary Ann Shaffer and her niece Annie Barrows is set in London after the Second World War, when in London «everything is broke: the roads, the buildings, the people». 
The main character Juliet is a humorous famous journalist and through her correspondences with Guernsey islanders, she discovers members of a literary club and their tale during the German Occupation. 

Later, Juliet decides to visit her new relationships in the island and realizes what she wants to write about in her new book with a new love. 

Mary Ann Shaffer was born in 1934 in Martinsburg (West Virginia). She became fascinated with the Channel Islands and «her book about Guernsey was greeted with vivid enthusiasm in thirteen countries». Because she became ill, her niece Annie Barrows helped her finish the book.
