I think I am in love - Alexander McCall Smith has helped me find my reading groove again - I was starting to worry I might have lost it!
I have just finished Espresso Tales the second book in the 44 Scotland Street series and I have started the third book in the tale immediately - just can't get enough.
Espresso Tales continues the story started in 44 Scotland Street - a lot more of a focus on my favourite character, the gorgeous 6 year old star, Bertie (and unfortunately his overbearing mother, Irene!).
If you haven't read this series at all I would highly recommend it - it is a great reading escape without being frivolous or silly - just funny, honest writing and characterisation. My only fear is that after I read the 5 books in the series I will be grief stricken if there are no more!
