Another enjoyable visit with Isabel. I love how she so often goes off into a train of thoughts that have nothing to do with the conversation she is having with someone. I love that Charlie wants to put Magnus down the drain. I love Brother Fox and moral proximity and Isabel getting involved in things that aren’t really her business and Jaime’s music and their free association game.

Always enjoy the discussion on moral and ethical issues. Niece Cat has a bit of news in this installment, and young Charlie wishes his new brother Magnus would get washed down the drain! Isabel only has one intervention during this novel, but otherwise she is occupied with a young wife and mother's busy schedule. One doesn't always need to be professionally involved in a career as a woman today, and it was nice to enjoy a relaxed pace in this round.

This is the 2017 book in McCall Smith's Isabel Dalhousie series. Isabel is asked to investigate a doctor who seems to specialize in getting wealthy women to part with their money. I found this one somewhat more interesting to read than the last one, but only just. Isabel spends too much time counting angels on heads of pins and worrying about nonexistent issues!

As usual, absolutely excellent. Isabel always makes sure to leave no misunderstandings, although that would be so much easier.
