Review - Sunshine on Scotland Street by Alexander McCall Smith

The Number 1 Detective Agency series by this author is rightly acclaimed but I think I prefer the Scotland Street series with its gentle musing on modern manners and the perennial problems of human nature. The gentle skewering of middle class pretensions continues as does the warm understanding of people's individual worries and concerns. McCall Smith is witty and engaging as Bertie and his neighbours and friends have another series of adventures. Pure bliss. Wendy
