The latest Isabel Dalhousie is a bit thin, but I'm still giving it 3 stars because I'm in love with Edinburgh (and Jamie is a bit of a dreamboat too!). I've always found Isabel a bit irritating, but now she's seriously getting on my nerves; I am starting to develop sympathies with her niece Kat and at times wondered whether the little mishap with the toxic mushrooms could have been deliberate! (That would provide Isabel with some philosophical issues to chomp on!) I think Isabel needs a bit of a jolt - she seems to be becoming a bit lazy, constantly putting off her editing, not even putting much effort into her "investigations". Seriously, what else does she have to do? I'd appreciate seeing Isabel roll up her sleeves and do some hard yakka for once!
