A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny

It's winter in the village of Three Pines, south of Montreal. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is called to the town when new resident CC de Poitiers is electrocuted during a curling match before a crowd of onlookers. Gamache is familiar with all the townspeople since the previous book in the series, Still Life, also took place there. Gamache and his band of interesting subordinates try to uncover the murderer even though clues are elusive. Penny creates a leisurely-paced book with a great sense of place for a small French-Canadian town and its inhabitants.
