This was the usual Scotland Street book. Robert Ian Mackenzie is a wonderful reader. I heard him introducing another book I was listening to and just had to find something he was narrating. This fit the bill. Lots of fun characters and nothing bad ever happens. I love these sweet cozy stories. ( )

These books keep getting better and better. I am getting into all the stories now, even to seeing the vain Bruce get his comeuppance with a fall by slipping on his hair gel. I like the fact that Mr. McCall Smith challenges me with words to look up and introduces me to artists and authors I may have not known otherwise. ( )

Another visit with dear friends. Perhaps not those who I'd normally "hang out" with, however, have come to enjoy their foibles, quirks, and finer points as I've read these 7 volumes. And I will be going to my library website and requesting #8 as soon as I finish typing this.
Truly enjoy this author's descriptions, depictions, gentle philosophies and nearly side splitting dry humor as he follows this cast through several years of Edinburgh life.
Many times go back and re-read sections, realizing that he's slipped some * ighty-fine writin'* in those last paragraphs. ( )
