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.
I am addicted to this series. Keep them coming Alexander McCall Smith.
