This is the third delightful installment in the Isabel Dalhousie series and I am always glad to return to Edinburgh and its quirky characters. Isabels cousin and husband visit from Dallas and introduce Isabel to a wealthy Texan who is newly engaged. There is something not quite right about this relationship and Isabel is trying to restrain herself from getting involved. Cat, of course, has a new boyfriend with a new set of problems to deal with and Isabel has her own drama in her life. This is a fun, engaging read about an interesting group of characters in Isabels life.
