Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“McCall Smith spikes his heroine’s seemingly cloistered world with enough close encounters with tragedy—a neighbor stabbed to death by someone he brought home, for example—to make both Isabel and the reader aware of the fragility of good fortune. Utterly satisfying.” Booklist (starred review)
“With his usual deft hand, Smith conjures characters with a few lines—housekeeper Grace with her short fuse is particularly alive—and he has a knack for combining light comedy and serious thought.” Publishers Weekly
“A delight…The leisurely paced plot combined with well-loved characters is like a retreat for the mind. Narrator Davina Porter adds even more charm to Isabel’s philosophical meanderings as she edits ‘The Review of Applied Ethics,’ raises her three-year-old son with her much adored younger husband, Jamie, and is solicited by a friend to help solve the mystery of an art theft.” AudioFile
