From the phenomenon Alexander McCall Smith comes the third book in the bestselling 44 Scotland Street series.

Domenica Macdonald has left for the Malacca Straits to research the domestic economy of contemporary pirate households. Meanwhile, back in Edinburgh, painter Angus Lordie’s dog, Cyril, has been dog-napped, and Pat gets herself caught up in a potential love triangle. Bertie, the six-year-old prodigal son of the insufferable Irene, is accidentally left behind in France. In the interstices of all these happenings, the beloved Alexander McCall Smith makes observations on a wide range of issues, including the merits of various forms of olive oil and our human search for happiness.

I read the entire series years ago and decided to reread them, I love these characters and the whole atmosphere Scotland Street. For me, it is a great place to go.

Another in the entertaining Scotland Street series. Bertie goes to Paris without Irene! Domenica goes to SE Asia! Pat moves in with Matthew and quickly moves out again! Cyril disappears!

A great continuation of the story! I loved the Bertie sections in Paris - and of course Angus' poor dog! A.M.Smith has created wonderful characters that draw you in to their worlds. I can't wait for the next installment!

Another gentle offering from Edinburgh. And it's rather nice, what with death, disease, global warming, and possible financial disaster in the headlines, to escape into the more manageable problems of those living in and around 44 Scotland Street.

The last "44 Scotland Street novel" I read was The World According to Bertie, which takes place after this one, but it doesn't matter. The characters in these novels lead busy lives with plenty of time for reflection.

"Have you noticed, Lou, how it feels when you know that somebody doesn't like you? . . . . And you know that you've done nothing to deserve this. You've done them no wrong. They just don't like you. It's an odd feeling, isn't it?"
Big Lou looked up at the ceiling. Matthew was right. It was an odd feeling. One felt somehow that it was unfair that the other felt that way. But it was more than that. The unmerited dislike of another made one think less of oneself. We are enlarged by the love of others; we are diminished by their dislike.
