Quotes & Awards

  • “A delicious mix of the unlikely and the tried-and-true, this latest cozy from an undisputed master will make readers feel just that.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Eloquent musings…Warmhearted and wise.”

    Seattle Times

  • “The characters and plots are thoughtful and thought-provoking, and will stay with readers well beyond the final page.”

    School Library Journal

  • “As always, McCall Smith offers a curiously seductive portrait of characters actively crafting ‘well-ordered’ lives.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “The denouement is pure magic. Beneath the slender mystery is a celebration of Isabel's fallible but resolutely ethical approach to life, charming and light but with a refreshingly unapologetic gravitas.”

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Veronique | 2/17/2014

    " The first instalment was ok, this one was possibly better as far as the storyline goes, but I've worked out what my problem is with this series. I don't like Isabel Dalhousie. So I think that in future I'll stick to the Ladies Detective Agency and Mma Ramotswe. "

    " I am not usually one for books of this sort, but I did rather enjoy this. It is billed as a mystery, but this is only mildly true. The mystery is light and airy. I had wished for a bit more to this end. There is little suspense here, but it is a good read anyway. "

    " I enjoyed this book more than the first one, The Sunday Philosophy Club, but it still wasn't the greatest. I had a hard time getting the right picture of Isabel Dalhousie. The author says she is early forties, but in my head she was more like a fussy 60 something. "

    " This is the 2nd in this story of the "Sunday Philosophy Club" about a curious lady who edits an ethics publication. She gets involved in other people's business in her communities. "
