Good book in the series, it should be read in order with the others, I liked the main character and her life in a Scottish village and how she lives her life.

This is the second book in this series. It is a light mystery, i.e. no murders or bad stuff. Similar to the Ladies #1 Detective series, it mysterious dilemmas in a life. Fairly intellectual with discussions on W.H.Auden and the Scottish poets in between the story line. Very good writing as is typical of AM Smith.

Cozy mystery, fun read

I thoroughly enjoyed this second book in the Isabel Dalhousie series and am glad to see the characters from the Sunday Philosophy Club are still just as entertaining. The main character Isabel, a part time philosopher and self appointed amateur detective is an intellectual who doesnt take herself too seriously, with a good sense of humor and a genuine interest in her fellow human beings. I find her interesting and definitely want to hear what her next witty comment will be.

While Isabels niece (Cat) is away on vacation, Isabel is running the deli and meets a man with a heart transplant. She discusses philosophy and psychology with him, and is drawn into solving a mystery for him. This is not a mystery with extreme suspense or violence, just a fun, entertaining look at life in Edinburgh Scotland with a little philosophy thrown in. This book is a lighthearted, pleasant read.
