The pace of the book so suits the novel. It seems such a simple life there, but their worries as similar to ours just different scales.
As with the others in the series, I thought the book a gentle, evocative read, with one case for our detective to get her teeth into, whilst allowing us, the readers, to share more of the lives of the characters created by Alexander McCall Smith.

Jane Hetherington's Adventures in Detection Omnibus (Books 1-3)
They made tv series of it few years back. But only few episodes. They nothing like books. But still enjoyable. I couldn't find the full episodes on you tube or anywhere.
Then I found a couple episodes on daily motion... if anybody want watch.
