Friends, Lovers, Chocolate

Alexander McCall Smith’s (2005) Friends, Lovers, Chocolate, Vintage Canada, ISBN #13:  978-0-676-97666-3, paperback, 261 pages.

What does it mean to transplant a heart?  Is it merely a surgical procedure?  Or does one’s heart carry with it the trials and tribulations – the heart ache, if you will – of the life they have led?

These are the questions McCall Smith addresses in the second in his series of Isabel Dalhousie mysteries, Friends, Lovers, Chocolate.

Once again, the Scottish town of Edinburgh with its rugged landscape and small town characteristics is featured prominently.

Once again Isabel Dalhousie, with the assistance of her niece, Cat, her friend, Jamie, and her housekeeper, Grace, attempts to unravel a mystery.

This mystery, however, is one of the heart.
