I always really enjoy Louise Penny books and look forward to reading her newest novels. The Long Way Home did disappoint me but I still enjoyed all the familiar characters. The plot/conflict in the story was weak and I found it somewhat predictable. Clara is introduced being just as strange and excentric as always, but this time it is her estranged husband Peter Morrow that has gone missing. Armand Gamache has retired from the Sûreté du Québec and struggles to keep his memories of solving murders at bay. When Peter is thought to be missing, Armand agrees to help Clara find her husband. There is a sense of familiarity with the characters with this being book 10 in the series and yet Penny is able to introduce new characters and settings to keep the plot engaging. The conclusion was tied up too easy for me; still The Long Way Home was a great read and I would recommend the Armand Gamache series to anyone.
