Journal Entry 1 by beeofgoodcheer from Stowmarket, Suffolk United Kingdom on Friday, July 26, 2019
I find Alexander McCall Smith's series books - and I am assuming that this is going to be the first in a new series - quite often a very slow burn to get started. The Isabel Dalhousie series was one such - I disliked the first book, and Isabel, and only read the second through commitment to a Bookcrossing ray. And lo and behold, I actually enjoyed it, and read several more.

This one, I'm not sure I'm going to try a second book, should one be written, as I didn't really like this one at all. I just found it very slow and somewhat trivial, even by McCall Smith's standards, and a little bit too self absorbed. The humour just didn't come across, or didn't hit my funny bone - or even wry smile generator button.

I'm always terribly impressed with McCall Smith's volume of output, but I fear his well is running a little dry.
