Praise

“A heart-warming read. . . . [and] an excellent tonic for whatever ails you.”
    —The Toronto Star

“McCall Smith cooks up a delicious story . . . with a dash of mystery and a dollop of satire. . . . Comfortable, easy, homey.”
    —The Washington Post
 
“Fascinating fare. . . . McCall Smith is by turns hilarious . . . and meditative.”
   —Booklist (starred review)
 
“Teeming with charm. . . . ample humor and grace.”
   —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“This third volume of Chekhovian soap opera is every bit as addictive as the first two.”
   —Kirkus Reviews

“You cannot beat McCall Smith for subtle musings shot through with insight and wit. His deft characterization enlivens the inner workings of everyday characters. His work offers a heartening view of [the] world.”
   —The Daily Telegraph (London)

“[Full] of warmth and wisdom and easy, accomplished writing that begs for a comfy chair.”
   —The Times (London)

“Whimsical. . . . McCall Smith specializes in subplots that punctuate the book like polka dots, relying on his considerable literary skills to link them into a merry pattern of human events.”
   —The Washington Times

“Quirky and original. . . . Told with warmth, wit and intelligence, and McCall Smith’s cast of characters are beautifully observed.”
   —Daily Express
