Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Kingdom of the Blind by Louise Penny

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. So I have a while to wait!

I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

I’m excited to read . . .

Kingdom of the Blind by Louise Penny

Series: Chief Inspector Armand Gamache #14

Published by Minotaur Books

Publishing date: November 27

Genre: Mystery

Synopsis: When a peculiar letter arrives inviting Armand Gamache to an abandoned farmhouse, the former head of the Sûreté du Québec discovers that a complete stranger has named him one of the executors of her will. Still on suspension, and frankly curious, Gamache accepts and soon learns that the other two executors are Myrna Landers, the bookseller from Three Pines, and a young builder.

None of them had ever met the elderly woman.

The will is so odd and includes bequests that are so wildly unlikely that Gamache and the others suspect the woman must have been delusional. But what if, Gamache begins to ask himself, she was perfectly sane?

When a body is found, the terms of the bizarre will suddenly seem less peculiar and far more menacing.


I really enjoy the Chief Inspector Gamache series. They’re well-written mysteries and I always learn things when I read them. I still have a few books in the series to read before I’ve caught up to this book, but I’m glad Louise Penny is still writing about Gamache.

What books are you looking forward to reading once they’re published?

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

    1. I like that these books take place in the French part of Canada. That is highlighted in these books as well as good mysteries.
