really liked it
bookshelves: mystery, scotland, ethics, first-in-series
Read in January, 2010

I like the gentle humor of the Ladies Detective Agency so decided to read the first in this series, called the Sunday Philosphy Club series in Britain, but the Isabel Dalhousie mystery series in the US. After Isabel witnesses a suicide/accident she becomes obsessed with whether it was actually murder. I liked this better than the 44 Scotland Street series -- a 40ish woman trying to do right was a more sympathetic protagonist. Enjoyed the intrigue and suspense, the bit of romance, the references to art, poetry and philosophy, and the discussion of ethical decisions involved in everyday living as well as in traumatic events.
