If you can’t read them in order, I would definitely advise you to read Still Life first. It will give you a feel for the locale and the characters. This is still my favorite Louise Penny book.

have to read in order because they are all separate stories, but there is one major thing that happens and is mentioned in most of them that helps you understand the characters feelings about it.
I've read them all after seeing them recommended on these forums
except for her newest one.
One of my favorite ones is the one with the monks, "A Beautiful Mystery."
In all her books there are parts I like and parts I could do without but her character of Inspector Gamache is always enjoyable to read about.

I didn’t realize it was a series when picked up one of the books either but it wasn’t necessary to the story line. I have since gone back and read about eight in the series in order I like them so much.
Which one did you pick up out of curiosity?

As a librarian that loves readers advisory, this is my very favorite series! I too would recommend Still Life as a beginning book, and to read them in order if possible. The books are so nuanced and layered that you get the most out of them if you read as the characters interact and develop. I look forward all year to her next book.

I have read all of her Inspector Gamache Three Pines series. I personally think you should read them in order. There are many changes along the way and it may be difficult to follow some of the storylines.
