The writing was nice, even challenging. But I thought the story was flat and I did not enjoy this set of characters as much as some of his other work.

I like Mr. Smith's style of writing. It is easy to become immersed and involved in the story of Isabel and all her family and friends. The city of Edinburgh becomes one of the characters, as well. I have read all 5 of Smith's "Isabel" books, and eagerly await the release of the 6th one in September.

This is the first of McCall Smith's books I have read, and out of sequence it seems. A little frustrating as I wanted the mystery elements to dominate, but felt held back by the personal story of Isabel. I felt a conflict between the two. However, in the end I did enjoy the book and will search out other works by this author. Beautifully written.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book - it's quite different than most and kept my interest throughout! I like that!

I thoroughly enjoy reading the entire Isabel Dalhousie series. This example, as all of them, is entertaining and makes the reader think: think about character, individual and moral choices, and community values. Wonderfully written.

better than the first book in this series..... but characters are not as loveable as Ladies Detective Agency series.

I think Alexander McCall Smith's writing from a female perspective is ingenious. He gets inside his character's head and gives you a personality you can really relate to. His characters also have the ability to think for themselves, giving the reader, or listener in the case of the audio books, the chance to understand his philosophy about life. I always purchase the audio books, as the narrator of the Isabel Dalhousie series is remarkable in her tone and accents. Truly worth more than just fill-in time during a long commute to work. I love this series and the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency. Buy them all!
