  1. I’m very happy to see that “Bury Your Dead” won the Dilys Award. Louise Penny is the best mystery writer I’ve read in the past few years.

    • You and so many others have praised her. And I’ve yet to read one. Better not say that out loud, she’s a facebook friend, lol. I have no reason for not having done so, just haven’t gotten around to her yet, but low and behold, I will!
