At once the nosiest and the most sympathetic philosopher you are likely to meet, 40-ish Isabel Dalhousie—half Scottish, half American—lives in a big old house in Edinburgh, where she has taken the editor's post at the Review of Applied Ethics and founded the Sunday Philosophy Club. From the author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, this slightly mysterious, quietly philosophical series is "the literary equivalent of herbal tea and a cozy fire … a world of kindness, gentility, and creature comforts."—NYTimes

In this third outing for Isabel Dalhousie, following Friends, Lovers, Chocolate, our intrepid and curious philosopher must contemplate the ethics of love, as she is introduced to Dallas tycoon Tom Bruce and his fiancée. It seems the girl is only marrying Tom for his money, just as it seems Tom has taken a fancy to Isabel—so should she give in to her powerful urge to start snooping into their true motives? Or should she tend her own romantic house, and her growing feelings for her friend Jamie?
