The delectable new installment in the bestselling and already beloved adventures of Isabel Dalhousie and her no-nonsense housekeeper, Grace. When friends from Dallas arrive in Edinburgh and introduce Isabel to Tom Bruce - a bigwig at home in Texas - several confounding situations unfurl at once. Tom's young fiancEe's roving eye leads Isabel to believe that money may be the root of her love for Tom. But what, Isabel wonders, is the root of the interest Tom begins to show for Isabel herself? And she can't forget about her niece, Cat, who's busy falling for a man whom Isabel suspects of being an incorrigible mama's boy. Of course Grace and Isabel's friend Jamie counsel Isabel to stay out of all of it, but there are irresistible philosophical issues at stake - when to tell the truth and when to keep one's mouth shut, to be precise - and philosophical issues are meat and drink to Isabel Dalhousie, editor of the Review of Applied Ethics. In any case, she's certain of the ethical basis for a little sleuthing now and again - especially when the problems involve matters of the heart.

This is a gentle, sweet book, beautifully written. You have to be willing to just go with the flow, whenever Isabel's mind takes off into philosophical conundrums. I really like this series. The series started off with a gentle murder mystery, but I think the author finally decided that Isabel could stand on her own two feet without added excitement.

I love these stories...especially when I take a break from murder and mystery. Beautifully written, great narration, just lovely!

This is my third Sunday Philosophy Club series. I enjoy the daily ethical problems that Isobel ponders. Smith is a great writer and the reader is great; love the Scots accent.

This book was very slow. The protagonist ruminated instead of pondering and analyzing the ethics of her situation. Too long not enough interactions among the cast.

This is a poor book from a great writer. I could not make it past disc 3. It's missing Alexander McCall Smith's charm, wit and fun.
