McCall Smithâ€™s writing is certainly addictive. Read one and you want to read more. Love Over Scotland is no different in that with his usual skill and charm he has pulled together a handful of quirky and brilliantly observed characters into a touching storyline with such ease. Serious issues are from time to time integrated into the storyline and yet with such lightness of touch the message is almost subliminal. Reading a McCall Smith is a bit like curling up with a really good friend. Just add a cup of cocoa and your set for the evening ahead. Pure joy.
Love Over Scotland is the third in the series and revolves around the many colourful characters that come and go at No. 44 Scotland Street. McCall Smith handles the characters with his customary charm and deftness - the stalwart Tory chartered surveyor, the pushy mother, most importantly in this novel, the Italian-speaking prodigy, Bertie.
