In addition to being the nosiest and most sypathetic philosopher you are likely to meet, Isabel is now a mother. Charlies, her newborn son, presents her with a myriad wonders of a new life, and doting father Jamie presents her with an intriguing proposal: marriage. In the midst of all this, she receives a disturbing letter announcing that she has been ousted as editor of the Review of Applied Ethics by the ambitious Professor Dove. None of these things, however, in any way diminshes Isabel's curiosity. And when she attends an art auction, she finds an irresistable puzzle: two paintings attributed to a now-deceased artist appear on the market at the same time, and both of them exhibit some unusual characteristics. Are these paintings forgeries? This proves to be sufficient fodder for Isabel's inquisitiveness. So she begins an investigation... and soon finds herself diverging from her philosophical musings about fatherhood onto a path that leads her into the mysteries of the art world and the soul of an artist.… (mere)

a very mild mystery of paintings by a dead painter who turns out to be only hiding, Isobel is fired from journal but buys it

Was rabid to read this right after the preceding book (The Right Attitude to Rain). I enjoyed reading about the further adventures of Isabel D's late in life baby and mate. I continue to be put off by the philosophical musings and the distance that she has from any other human I know. The capability and concentration Isabel demonstrates within a few months of giving birth also seemed excessive. Not enough spit up and ruined sleep for my tastes. I probably don't need to read any more of these. ( )

Another ramble by McCall-Smith in the world of Isabel Dalhousie. As usual nothing much happens, though there is a flash of out of character Machiavellian machination which was mildly amusing. ( )

While I love this series, this particular story was not as riveting as others. Many of the same plot techniques used, and the story is barely moved along. ( )

Good novel about feeling grateful and blessed for the love in life. Describes the raw and wild beauty of Scotland, and provides a nifty art mystery.

Cool read. I definitely am enjoying this series more than at first.
