I LOVE this series by McCall-Smith. He has a knack of developing a very believable main character with great insight and plenty of wisdom to impart. I love the situation of Isabel who has to shuffle a career, marriage to a younger man and motherhood. Throw in a crazy niece and an eccentric housekeeper with a lot of really bizarre situations in the mix, and McCall -Smith captivates us with a novel of intrigue and common sense. Since I have now visited Edinburgh, I feel like I can relate to Isabel and her world. The author's word pictures are true to life when it comes to Scotland.

Isabel Dalhousie is my least favorite Alexander McCall Smith heroes--she is a bit too aware of her own intellectual and ethical superiority, and is annoyingly self-contained--but this latest book meets all the criteria for her fans. There is a vague mystery, wonderfully descriptive scenes of Edinburgh and Scotland, an interesting depiction of the Scottish gentry, and lots of philosophical pondering.

I do recommend that if you have not read this series, you start with the first one., "The Sunday Philosophy Club." These are just really interesting character studies and a joy to read.

Why is this not available in an audio version? I have a Nook but you can't read it while driving.

This is the warriors den. It's warm in leaf-bare and cool in late new-leaf. There are plenty of nests. ~•|Swiftstar|•~
