Louise Penny checks in on her Latest Mystery

Good news - BURY YOUR DEAD



We had marvelous news about BURY YOUR DEAD. It has been chosen by the ALA - the American Library Association - as the Best Mystery of 2010! It was also chosen by the CBA - Canadian Bookseller's Association - as their favorite hand-sell of 2010. And BURY YOUR DEAD has been nominated for a Dilys Award in the US. Each year the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association votes on the book they most enjoyed selling. The other nominees are: The other nominees are: Steve Hamilton (The Lock Artist), Dennis Lehane (Moonlight Mile), Colin Cotterill (Love Songs From a Shallow Grave), Keith Thomson (Once a Spy), and Don Winslow (Savages). Very exciting!

Note: I have yet to read Bury Your Dead but my book club loved it.  I was interested to find out that part of the mystery takes place at the Quebec Literary and Historical Society Society where once, I was a member.
