Publisher's Summary

Isabel Dalhousie, philosopher and amateur solver of other people's problems, meets an old foe, Minty Auchterlonie, at a birthday party attended by their young children. Ambitious Minty, now the head of a small investment bank, is in trouble with her shareholders. Isabel becomes involved, and is drawn into a murky world of financial concealment.

Minty is not the only high-flier in Isabel's life; her niece Cat has just become engaged to a tightrope-walking stuntman. Isabel fears his next job - and the engagement - could end in disaster. Meanwhile, her own boyfriend, Jamie, has marriage in mind too . . .

    Story
    "A Giggle on the Way to Work"
    Would you listen to The Lost Art of Gratitude again? Why?

    I would certainly listen again...because Alexander has a way of making me giggle on the way to work. I take delight in his subtle humour and understated seriousness of thought.

    "Gentle and thought provoking"

    A big fan of Alexander McCall Smith in print I enjoyed this installment of Isobel Dalhousie with the chracters all gently moving forward and the usual philosopical questions. However I would have preferred a more Scottish reader.
