My Favorite . . Book Character I’d Like to Go Shopping With

My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info: My Favorite Meme.

I mostly read mysteries and the main characters seem to attract murders. I’m not sure that I’d really want to go shopping with any of them, for fear of being the secondary character who ends up dead or in jail. Also, most of them are not really into shopping. They’re more likely to work in a bookstore than shop in one, to interrogate the store owner instead of trying on dresses.

Instead, I’m going with where I would like to shop. Okay, I’m skipping the obvious ones – New York, Paris, etc. and going with a purely fictional town, Three Pines from Louise Penny’s Gamache series. There’s the bookstore, the boulangerie, and the bistro and they are all run by the nicest, quirkiest people your could hope to meet. Of course, there’s still the problem of ending up dead or in jail, but at least not every murder in the books takes place in the town.

La Rumeur Affamée in Sutton, Quebec, the inspiration for the boulangerie
Brome Lake Books, the inspriration for the bookstore, even though it’s not nearly as quaint as I picture in my head.
