The Brutal Telling; Louise Penny

The Brutal Telling (Armand Gamache, #5) The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Having finished four-in-a-row of this series, I can firmly state that Ms. Penny needs an editor. It's one thing to have repetitive tag lines (how many times did Rex Stout remind us of Nero's 1/8 acre of yellow silk pajamas?), it's another to repeat paragraphs. At times it feels as though she just doesn't know how better to describe or comment on something.

Other than that, my affection for the characters continues as does my enjoyment of the plots. Luckily, I don't have another sitting here and by the time the next one arrives my problems with her writing will have receded.
