Still Life - Louise Penny WHY I WANT TO READ IT: Sounds like an English "cozy" mystery, but set in rural Canada. Sounds intriguing. I hear though, that the detective is happily married...now how can I fall in love with him if he isn't tragically single, brooding but tender inside, and in need of my care? Sigh. Still, it might be worth a try.
