Getting Cozy with Louise Penny

I'm settling in at home after an overstuffed summer -- the perfect time to read a mystery set in a warm (if occasionally sinister) country village.  Since her debut ten years ago, Louise Penny has quickly become recognized a modern master of the small town whodunit.  "Cozy" mysteries have a lot to offer writers and readers of thrillers.  The pace and focus of cozies allow more time for buried secrets, an emphasis on character eccentricities over action, and rich settings.
