“Funny, barbed, delightfully winsome
storytelling…As with the polished work of Alexander McCall Smith, there is
never a dull moment…Its main characters are especially well drawn, and Ms.
Simonson makes them as admirable as they are entertaining. They are
traditionally built, and that’s not just Mr. McCall Smith’s euphemism. It’s
about intelligence, heart, dignity, and backbone. Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand has them all.”
