Waiting on Wednesday – The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

The Beautiful Mystery (Unabridged Audio)

by Louise Penny
Narrated by Ralph Cosham

Publication Date: August 28, 2012

I knew this was coming out, but didn’t realize how soon! If you haven’t met Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, the head of Homicide for the Surete du Quebec yet, here’s your chance. I’m sure these are great books to read, too, but I listen to them on audio, narrated by Ralph Cosham. He brings out the humor in this mystery series, but has the appropriate gravitas for the many serious themes that run through the books (including, but not limited to, murder).

Listen to an audiobook sample on the author’s Web site here. She also reports that the audio edition of The Beautiful Mystery has already won an Earphones award from Audiofile. (See? I told you they were great audiobooks!)

Read my review of one of the earlier books in the series here.

  1. I have not heard of this book but I will be checking it out! Thanks for spotlighting it! Check out my WoW!

  2. Hi Laurie

    Made a stop at the local library after reading this entry. I promise to purchase some of the other books in the series if as good as you say. Looks like LBJ part four will have to wait a little longer

  3. Yet another author I need to try – everyone raves over her work!

  4. Thanks for sharing this book. I was just thinking that I need to find a new audio!

    • Still Life is the one to start with. Ralph Cosham reads them all. The day I posted this, I received a review audio in the mail from the publisher. Starting it today!
