After reading the first of the series, 44 Scotland Street, I wanted to continue with the second book, Espresso Tales. Alexander McCall Smith has created characters, including a dog, with unique personalities, problems, goals, motivations; he presents each with a dilemma that requires philosophical and moral thinking before making a decision. Lives intertwine, and the reader wanting each interaction to turn out right even though life is not that way. Little Bertie, age 6, continues to deal with his mother Irene, and to fit in at school; in this book, he makes progress thanks to his father's help. Pat helps Matthew do better in his gallery business; however, at the end of the book, she has caused a potential problem for her roommate Bruce. Pat's delightful neighbor Domenica makes a life changing decision that will involve travel and a dangerous anthropological study. Lou, the espresso bar owner, may unite with the love of her life. Now I want to continue with book 3 of the 44 Scotand Street Series.

Smith has an amazing talent for verbalizing the thoughts going through the minds of his characters.

I'm a huge fan of the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency series but didn't enjoy his other Scotland series as well so I was not in a hurry to read the first book in this series. I love the characters in this series and hope that the author does a follow up book. It's fun to follow the lives of very disparate characters who have little in common beyond a home address or the residents at that address.

Although somewhat charming this book is extremely wordy. Like books out of the past century it uses as many large words as possible to sound 'learned' and has much material about the psychology of children as deemed intelligent by parents of young children by their parents---usually mothers. I guess it's fine for some but definitely not for me.
