definitely not as good as the " Scotland street" series. the story of the dog hired by MI6 is positively ridiculous.

I loved this book! The characters are a lot like those in Scotland Street, and just as lovable!
Thanks for sharing this with me, Tamsine!

Thank you so much motherof11 for this wonderful surprise! I received this a few days ago, and I must apologise for leaving it this long before writing a journal entry. I have been online a lot but only 5 minutes here and there as I can't sit long at the computer desk. I have a very painful leg right now and it has been making me really depressed.
However, I really was thrilled to receive this book and the lovely Christmas card. I will try to take a photo soon in daylight and put it here, as I usually do whenever I receive a package!
Thank you once more for your continued generosity motherof11.


Amazon Review:
CORDUROY MANSIONS - Book 2
In the Corduroy Mansions series of novels, set in London’s hip Pimlico neighborhood, we meet a cast of charming eccentrics, including perhaps the world’s most clever terrier, who make their home in a handsome, though slightly dilapidated, apartment block.

The second installment in Alexander McCall Smith’s newest beloved series follows the further adventures of Freddie de la Hay, Pimlico terrier, and the wonderfully motley crew of his fellow residents in the elegantly crumbling London mansion block, Corduroy Mansions.

A pair of New Age operators has determined that Terence Moongrove’s estate is the ideal location for their Centre for Cosmological Studies. Literary agent Barbara Ragg has decided to represent a man who is writing a book about his time “hanging out” with the abominable snowman. And our small, furry, endlessly surprising canine hero, Freddie de la Hay, has been recruited by MI6 to infiltrate a Russian spy ring. Needless to say, the other denizens of Corduroy Mansions have issues of their own. But all of them will be addressed with the wit, charm, and insight into the foibles of the human condition that have become the hallmark of this truly peerless storyteller.

I enjoyed reading this novel, although it took me a while to get into it. I felt sorry for, and was worried about, Freddie De La Hay, but all was well in the end! Quite a mixture of unusual characters!!!

This book was waiting to be read for a long time..... Now I have read and enjoyed it.
I had not read any books by this author for a while and realise it is better to wait for a bit before reading another. Too much of the same otherwise. But as a light undemanding book it was just what I needed at the time.
