The Right Attitude to Rain (Large Print) (Isabel Dalhousie Mysteries)by Alexander McCall Smith
Synopses & Reviews
The delectable new installment in the bestselling and already beloved adventures of Isabel Dalhousie and her no-nonsense housekeeper, Grace.
When friends from Dallas arrive in Edinburgh and introduce Isabel to Tom Bruce – a bigwig at home in Texas – several confounding situations unfurl at once. Toms young fiancées roving eye leads Isabel to believe that money may be the root of her love for Tom. But what, Isabel wonders, is the root of the interest Tom begins to show for Isabel herself? And she cant forget about her niece, Cat, whos busy falling for a man whom Isabel suspects of being an incorrigible mamas boy. Of course Grace and Isabels friend Jamie counsel Isabel to stay out of all of it, but there are irresistible philosophical issues at stake – when to tell the truth and when to keep ones mouth shut, to be precise – and philosophical issues are meat and drink to Isabel Dalhousie, editor of the Review of Applied Ethics. In any case, shes certain of the ethical basis for a little sleuthing now and again – especially when the problems involve matters of the heart.
