"The latest installment of Alexander McCall Smith's perennially popular and irresistibly charming 44 Scotland Street series. When Pat accepts her narcissistic ex-boyfriend Bruce's invitation for coffee, she has no idea of the complications in her romantic and professional life that will follow. Meanwhile, Matthew, her boss at the art gallery, attracts the attention of the police after a misunderstanding at the local bookstore. Whether caused by small things such as a cup of coffee and a book, or major events such as Stuart's application for promotion and his wife Irene's decision to pursue a PhD in Aberdeen, change is coming to Scotland Street. But for three seven-year-old boy--Bertie Pollock, Ranald, and Big Lou's foster son, Finlay--it also means getting a glimpse of perfect happiness. Alexander McCall Smith's delightfully witty, wise and sometimes surreal comedy spirals out in surprising ways in this new installment, but its heart remains where it has always been at the center of life in Edinburgh's New Town"--… (mer)

Series gets better and better. Not sure why Pat would re-connect with Bruce. Matthew helps her end that toxic relationship quickly. And Pat helps Matthew out of an embarrassing situation.

This is the saddest novel in the series because of situation between Stuart and Irene coming to a head. Domenica feels a restless uncertainty about the direction of her life. And the Duke tells Matthew why he's "sick at heart." The last paragraph on page 125 can be viewed as oddly prescient of what is happening worldwide now, in 2020!

Thankfully Domenica 'sees the light' and acknowledges she is grateful for her fulfilling and good life, and how Angus has added much love to it. while most of the series' characters are good people, Angus and Bertie are the most exceptionally 'good' and loving characters in the series.

I was glad to learn about the poetry (and life) of Hamish Henderson, strikingly beautiful and moving.

I'm sad to be nearing the end of this series. Hope McCall Smith continues adding to it.

Please read this fine book!

Underseasoned in philosophy and wit, overseasoned in fey and gender-based humour, but nostalgia for the preceding instalments make for a pleasant read nonetheless. ( )

Another wonderful 44 Scotland Street book. I love these characters. Sometimes put off by the philosophical ramblings, but they are not too overbearing here. Wonderful narrator. Looking forward, as always, to the next one. ( )

I enjoyed the wit and wry humour of this, and of course I am in love with seven-year-old Bertie, a wonderful creation. This was the perfect antidote in what has been a time of tricky situations. ( )

I love this series, but most of all Bertie. Some chapters I almost skim until I get to another chapter about this wise wee boy. I am glad Pat saw the error of her ways and wrote off Bruce. Who knows if Matthew and Elspeth's au pair is too good to be true. We'll have to see. ( )
