Storyline was fine, but there are amazing characters in these books, and their witty repertoire is key to capturing the heart of Three Pines. Instead, they looked like a bunch of crazy (and thinner than expected) extras.
There was also lack of character development in Armande's team. Beauvoir and Lacoste were bland background characters.
This, and other Louise Penny mysteries could (AND SHOULD) be made into a series.
There is enough wit and mystery to carry a single novel through a short season, and allow for the long term characters to grow on you.
