Praise

“Isabel is a force to be reckoned with.” —USA Today

“Delightful. . . . McCall Smith’s talent for dialogue is matched only by his gift for characterization.” —Chicago Tribune
 
“The literary equivalent of herbal tea and a cozy fire. . . . Invites readers into a world of kindness, gentility and creature comforts.” —The New York Times
 
“Fascinating. . . . Utterly satisfying.” —Booklist (starred review)

“Endearing. . . Offers tantalizing glimpses of Edinburgh’s complex character and a nice, long look into the beautiful mind of a thinking woman.” —The New York Times Book Review
 

“Readers get to soak up the cozy atmosphere of this Scottish university town and McCall Smith’s gentle good will.” —The Boston Globe

“A world where humor is gentle, suffering is acknowledged but not foregrounded, and efforts to do good are usually rewarded. It’s a wonderful place to visit, even if we don’t get to live there.” —The Washington Post

“McCall Smith’s contemporary cozies have proved that crimes need not be punishable by death to provide a satisfying read . . . A genteel, wisdom-filled entertainment.” —Los Angeles Times
