Excited to start this one, the last Gamache book in the series so far. Does anyone have any similar series to recommend? I will be having withdrawals after I finish! 😩

Susanita Anne Bogel to the rescue! Besides the podcast, I think there‘s an earlier blog post if you look around on the website. https://modernmrsdarcy.com/323-episode/ 3mo
LikelyLibrarian I like the Ruth Galloway Series by Elly Griffiths. 3mo
cajunsyd @Susanita ooh, I hadn‘t seen this episode. I have listened to that podcast but it‘s been a few months! Thanks! 3mo

I‘m already shocked by the revelations and I am only 70 pages into this one. Feeling angry, sad, disappointed, etc. A must read for sure.

Loving this tome so far!!! My library only offered it in large print so I can use it as a weight as well! So big...

Scochrane26 I get large print books from the library if it‘s the only option. I don‘t mind them, but they are heavy. 🙂 1y
BennettBookworm I‘m still far down the waiting list for this one at the library so I‘m trying to decide if I should buy it! Impatient haha 1y

How interesting that this book came out one year before what has been arguably the worst pandemic in decades. And even more interesting is the fact that many people today are reacting much like those impacted by the plague in the Middle Ages. Things that make you go hmmmm...

Everyone should read this book at some point. There are so many wonderful pearls on how to navigate aging and how to live a fulfilled life all the way through to the end. There is something for everyone, no matter your age.

Mistermandolin Great pick. For what it‘s worth, I thought the opening chapters ranked alongside the best of anything he‘s written - and that‘s saying something. Alas, he doesn‘t quite sustain the opening promise, but this is head and shoulders above most of the competition. 2y
