This installment finds everyone's favorite resident of Montreal solving a murder at a remote hotel in Quebec. Gamache and his wife, Reine-Marie, are on vacation to celebrate thier honeymoon when one of the guests at the hotel is murdered.
The vic is also related to Peter Morrow, the artist who is a bit jealous of his wife's success, and whom I think is a douche.
I missed the duck.
But I found the mystery really engrossing. The characters were drawn well, and I loved the fact that Bean was still Bean by the end of the novel.
