Critic Reviews

"[Narrator Robert Ian] Mackenzie's soothing voice gently leads listeners through the characters' meandering thought processes: Does one own a painting found in a secret room of a newly purchased home? Do men have different conversations when women aren't present? Is it ethical to arrange for the seduction of a gold digger? Whatever the answers, Mackenzie's narration is purely delightful."

One of the best in the series

I really enjoyed this book. I love most of what AMS writes but this is my favorite series. I was so pleased for Bertie, finally!
It was a nice relaxing listen but went by too quickly.
Each character gets more and more personality in each book and I cannot wait for more about Big Lou and her cousin as well as Bruce and Pat. Great book.

Warmth, laughter, and principles

I was disappointed at first when I began listening to this book, because it was not about the same characters I had enjoyed before. I forgot that, as I became engaged in the lives of the people at 44 Scotland St. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. I wish I could tell Alexander McCall Smith how sincerely I love his writing. He seems to be able to enter into the minds of so many different kinds of people that it's almost as if he is multiple authors.. His use of language is marvelous, and the breath of his knowledge is prodigious.
