Quotes & Awards

  • “This book is a clear demonstration of Mr. McCall Smith’s own philosophy: that there is wisdom in inviting readers into a world of kindness and gentility and creature comforts. Offer the literary equivalent of herbal tea and a cozy fire. They’ll come back for more.”

    New York Times

  • “Glows like a rare jewel.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “A plucky new series by a master of local color.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Murder and moral obligation mingle in this whimsical new series…Scotland’s climate may be misty and cool, but McCall Smith’s charming prose warms every page of this winning series debut.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Davina Porter creates a wonderful range of Scottish accents and delivers a fine-tuned narration…Porter’s varying tone and pacing keep the listener involved, and her interpretation of well-born but broadminded Isabel is adroit.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jennifer H | 2/13/2014

    " This really was an interesting book - a little odd as it strove to have a very high society and intellectual main character. You can't help but like her, though. While she is very introspective, she's pretty bold! Maybe someday the club will actually meet, but for the time being it's good to follow just one member. "

    " Not quite as magical as the Ladies detective agency but still very enjoyable! "

    " This isn't exactly a mystery novel as I'd expected but how fun to hangout in Isabel's head! Her musings on society, ethics, and observing others were so interesting to read. I definitely want to join the Sunday Club. The plot is pretty abrupt, almost strange, but I definitely want to read more of this series. "

    " Didn't draw me in like the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books do. Disappointingly bland. "
