Friends, Lovers, Chocolate.

by Alexander. Mccall Smith

Publication: 1897

First edition. Signed. Fine in dust jacket. Isabel Dalhousie thinks often of friends, sometimes of lovers, and on occasion of chocolate. As an Edinburgh philosopher she is certain of where she stands. She can review a book called In Praise of Sin with panache and conviction, but real life is a bit more challenging particularly when it comes to her feelings for Jamie, a younger man who should have married her niece, Cat. Jamie is very handsome and leaves Isabel feeling distinctly uneasy and disturbed. When Cat takes a break in Italy, Isabel agrees to run her deli. One of the customers, she discovers, has recently had a heart transplant and is now being plagued by memories that cannot be rationally explained. Isabel is so intrigued that she finds herself rushing headlong into a dangerous investigation.
