3rd book inthe series.
McCall Smith is such a smart writer: I like how he engages the characters is what I will call "good follow through" of actions, attitudes, time and place experiences.
This plot involves Isabel's house guests, cousing Mimi and husband Joe, all the way from Texas to Edinburgh. ...and...other mysterious Texans ...and Jamie's mysterious action ...and, yes, the lovely presence of Brother Fox, of garden fame.

This story is being TOLD to you, and it reminds you often that it is just being TOLD to you. Very hard to engage with the characters. Missing all the dialogue, color, and action of the No! Ladies Detective Lady series.

Isabel Dalhousie, a philosopher who believes it is her moral duty to solve conundrums, entertains family from Texas in this 3rd book in the series. Isabel's relationships with Jamie, Grace, and Cat become even more familiar and dear to the reader. Brother Fox makes another appearance! I love these tales from Edinburgh!
