Introducing Isabel Dalhousie the heroine of the latest bestselling series from the author of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. Isabel, the editor of the Review of Applied Ethics and an occasional detective, has been accused of getting involved in problems that are, quite frankly, none of her business. In this first installment, Isabel is attending a concert in the Usher Hall when she witnesses a man fall from the upper balcony. Isabel can’t help wondering whether it was the result of mischance or mischief. Against the best advice of her no-nonsense housekeeper Grace, her bassoon playing friend Jamie, and even her romantically challenged niece Cat, she is morally bound to solve this case. Complete with wonderful Edinburgh atmosphere and characters straight out of a Robert Burns poem, The Sunday Philosophy Club is a delightful treat from one of our most beloved authors.

The mystery is engaging but is secondary to the characters and Smith adds information on philosophy and Isabel makes decisions based on it throughout the book. The Sund...

3.0 The Sunday Philosophy Club (Dalhousie 1)
Interesting read, although not quite as complete as I might like. In Edinburgh Isabel witnesses a fall in a concert hall where a man dies, she has questions as to whether it's an accident or deliberate and starts to look into it. It is obviously a first book in a series setting up further books in t...

3.0 Sunday Philosophy Club - An Isabel Dalhousie Mystery
Isabel Dalhousie is a middle aged spinster in Edinburgh, a philosopher with some time on her hands and a niece called Cat (who is with the wrong man). All of which means she has a tendency to get involved in other people's lives. She's at a concert at the Usher hall when she sees a man fall from the...

I'm not sure what word I'm looking for to describe this book: gentle, genteel, genial, maybe all of the above. The novel is written by the author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency but this is the first book in a different series. Isabel Dalhousie lives quite comfortably in Edinburgh, where she e...
