I love listening to Isabel's musings, how she is always trying to do the right thing by others.
"You always seem to sort things out," he said. "Even if you get it all wrong, you sort things out." - Jamie

As well, Isabel is worrying about the age difference between her and Jamie, and dealing with her possessiveness and jealousy regarding him but she is aware of her nosiness.
She heard herself say that—the case—and thought: Who do you think you are? You're beginning to talk like some ridiculous sleuth, when you're just Isabel Dalhousie, intermeddler. That was the right word, although it was heavy with self-criticism. She imagined the dictionary definition—intermeddler: one who meddles in affairs that are no business of hers; as in: "Isabel Dalhousie was a real intermeddler" or "Isabel Dalhousie, an echt intermeddler" (for echt, see the Real McCoy).

This is a great series.
