Description
Isabel Dalhousie finds herself entangled in some tricky familial and financial situations that will require all of her kindness, charm and philosophical expertise to navigate. Just when Isabel and Jamie finally seem to have some time to connect and unwind, a wealthy Edinburgh resident reaches out to Isabel with an unusual request—he would like her to become the executor of his large Highland estate. Though Isabel initially demurs, he presses on. He has only a short time to live and, without any direct heirs, is struggling to determine which of his three cousins would be the best caretaker. Should the estate go to the bohemian artist, the savvy city property developer, or the quiet, unassuming bachelor? And if this weren't enough to keep Isabel occupied, she's also spending more time helping her niece, Cat, at the deli. Cat, perennially unlucky in love, appears to have finally found her match in the leonine Leo. But Isabel is beginning to suspect that Leo might be interested in more than Cat's charms—namely, her access to the family trust. Isabel will need to rely upon her remarkable reserves of intelligence and compassion in order to give all parties exactly what they want and deserve—no more and no less.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Hearing celebrated narrator Davina Porter narrate this gentle, thoughtful novel is like being invited to tea by some truly likable Scottish friends. The listener will hear charming chitchat, erudite discussions of situational ethics, and a generous concern for those in need of help. All the characters have evocative Scottish accents that seem authentic and are pleasantly comprehensible. While there are no corpses cluttering pathways or bloodstains on the doorstep, heroine Isabel Dalhousie is once again embroiled in complicated familial and financial dilemmas. This is the 13th novel in the series featuring Isabel, whose unerring moral compass, logical mind, and natural curiosity have made her a popular heroine. D.L.G. � AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine
