"Alexander McCall Smith's assessments of fellow humans are piercing and profound. [His] depictions of Edinburgh are vivid and seamless . . . His fans are sure to embrace these moral peregrinations among the plaid." ( San Francisco Chronicle)

slow moving but enjoyed development
The main character Isabel always trusts people and will try to help when asked. But when an acquaintance asks a favor, it turns out she's not telling the truth and is taking advantage. I enjoyed the realizations the main character made as she did her best to help in various situations. This book is slow moving with a lot of minutely rendered dialog and gives the detailed thought process of the main character. Some might not like it as an audio book. If you like a lot of action, pick something different.

The Lost Art of Gratitude
Davina Porter makes this series. Her slight Scots accent is perfect. Enjoy the wandering of philosophical thought along with the plot of the story. You have to be in the mood for this series. But it always leaves you with some issue to chew on for a while. I know some people do not care for this type of book but enjoy it. I also enjoy philosophy.
