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 was the first of his mystery books I have read - it is not a "typical" mystery book but a quick and easy and delightful read

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.

If you like Alexander McCall Smith's style of writing, this is right on par. I enjoyed it as an easy reading, not have to think too much, nice rainy day to read kind of book.

Really loved this book, but then there is more than just a little bit of the lady philosopher in me. And there is the aura in her relationship with her friend Jamie of the Edwardian lover who keeps her own good council and yet hopes for more. Jane Austin would be proud of her and think her a proper lady. But she does smolder doesn't she?

This is my first read by Smith and listened to the audiobook. Davina Porter's Scottish accent was delightful(although she was born in Britain).

It took six chapters to finally get involved in the story. The author does meander off on tangents (often musing some philosophical notion).

This story vaguely reminded me of The Year of Pleasures by Elizabeth Berg. If you enjoyed her book, you might enjoy Friends, Lovers, Chocolate too.
