Publisher's Summary

The latest installment of Alexander McCall Smith's perennially popular and irresistibly charming 44 Scotland Street series.
When Pat accepts her narcissistic ex-boyfriend Bruce's invitation for coffee, she has no idea of the complications in her romantic and professional life that will follow. Meanwhile, Matthew, her boss at the art gallery, attracts the attention of the police after a misunderstanding at the local bookstore.
Whether caused by small things such as a cup of coffee and a book, or major events such as Stuart's application for promotion and his wife Irene's decision to pursue a PhD in Aberdeen, change is coming to Scotland Street. But for three seven-year-old boys - Bertie Pollock, Ranald, and Big Lou's foster son, Finlay - it also means getting a glimpse of perfect happiness.
Alexander McCall Smith's delightfully witty, wise and sometimes surreal comedy spirals out in surprising ways in this new installment, but its heart remains where it has always been at the center of life in Edinburgh's New Town.

Heartwarming & Entertaining

Robert Ian Mackenzie reads with astonishing aptitude giving each character their unique voice,thus enabling me to picture them, developing likes and dislikes as to real people in the neighbourhood. Alexander McCall Smith makes his characters always believable and creates their lives as if he is just reporting it. My favourite story to accompany my busy and lonely housewife days. Thank you, Alexander and Robert!!! Life is fuller wirh your voices !
