I noticed this book on the library's "new fiction" shelf and remembered how much I have enjoyed other books by Alexander McCall Smith. I was not disappointed!

This is the second in a new series called the Corduroy Mansions novels. These stories seem to be set in England, rather than in Botswana (as the #1 Ladies Detective Agency series). So a refreshing new setting with fun new characters.

It was a little confusing with so many different characters in this one, but I decided to just go with the narrative flow. Or rather, multiple narratives intertwined. It was a treat, as always.

A light, fun tale. Humorous and heartwarming. Just what I needed to read. Time to find the first one in the series too!
