An Isabel Dalhousie Novel (13)
by Alexander McCall Smith
Alexander McCall Smith is probably best known for his No 1 Ladies Detective series. My favorites of his though are the the Isabel Dalhousie books. They combine beautiful titles along with a love of philosophy and a woman of a certain age in Isabel. Over the course of the novels readers watch as Isabel is tormented by someone at her journal, finds a relationship, becomes a parent and more. At the same time, readers enjoy spending time in Scotland and getting to know those around her including Isabel’s unlucky in love, niece Cat.
This time, in the 13th book in the series, Isabel is asked to be the executor of a Highland estate. What troubles will this bring to her? As if that is not sufficient, what is up with Cat and her latest love interest?
The books in this series are gentle and enjoyable. I highly recommend this entry and all of the others.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Knopf Doubleday for this title. All opinions are my own.
