8 out of 10

This was a fun read. I admit it took me a while to warm up to both of the main characters, but I finally came to like them, quirks and all. There was subtle humor throughout the novel, and a few laugh-out-loud moments. I had never heard of this author and now find she has written several books.

I chose this because it takes place partly in Edinburgh, a city I plan to visit soon. I'd hoped for more sense of place than it delivered. Still, a fun read. Recommended for those who enjoy stories involving family dynamics, and fitting together pieces of a puzzle as a series of vignettes come together to form a satisfying whole.
====================
Amazon UK:
When James McElroy saw the ad for a lodger with 'Bibi Sanders' in a smart Edinburgh street, he pictured a glamorous young landlady with whom he would form a meaningful and deep relationship. But Bibi's in her seventies. She's led a full life, including marriage to the domineering and difficult Callum, now deceased, and raised six children.She's not sure what to make of James and suspects - rightly - a troubling secret in his past. When Bibi sets out to re-visit the past for the final time via a tour of Britain in her rather unexpected Volvo sports car, James decides to go with her. It's a journey full of surprises and revelations which will change them both - and, in Isla Dewar's inimitable way, entertain and enlighten every reader.
