Crime on My Mind
Murder on the Thanksgiving Menu.
Since this is the weekend of the Canadian Thanksgiving celebrations -- and I am celebrating with my son in Fredericton, N.B. -- I thought it would be fun to list all the mysteries which take place on or around Thanksgiving. Canadian, British & U.S. titles are all fair fixings.
So...to start it off, my choice is Still Life by Louise Penny. It was our first visit to the village of Three Pines in the Eastern Townships and it took place during Thanksgiving weekend. We met and got hooked on Inspector Armand Gamache and all the villagers, even though a murderer was in their midst and a well-known resident was the victim. Not only was the village a wonderful place to visit but the holiday was wonderfully celebrated.
O.K....now it's your turn. (I am on holiday, you know.) Thanksgiving and murder...name a book and author!
