I wanted to like this more than I did. I didn't *dislike* this, but it was kind of lackluster. I wanted to read it because it's set in Quebec, and after enjoying that part of the Temperance Brennan series, I saw this at the library and grabbed it. I think the series will get better, because the setting is great: the combination of cultural artifacts and languages in Quebec makes for interesting reading.
The story here was interesting, but not super compelling. And the characters of the small town in which the crime occurs were also interesting, but not highly compelling either.
I'll keep an open mind and try another one in the series before I give up.
