"Scotland Street witnesses the wedding of the century of Angus Lordie to Domenica Macdonald, but as the newlyweds depart on their honeymoon, Edinburgh is in disarray. While recovering from the trauma of being best man, Matthew is taken up by a Dane called Bo. Cyril eludes his dog-sitter and embarks on an odyssey involving fox holes and the official residence of a cardinal. Narcissist Bruce meets his match in the form of a sinister doppelganger. Bertie, set up by his mother for fresh embarrassment at school, yearns for freedom, and Big Lou goes viral. However, the residents of Scotland Street rally, and order is restored by the combined effects of understanding, kindness, and, most of all, friendship"-- Provided by publisher.

Another great addition to the 44 Scotland Street series. Light reads, but always enjoyable. Great to keep up with Bertie and the whole "gang."

The beauty of these books is exactly in their slow pace. The people and the world they live in are a bit more slower, gentler, kinder, forgiving, and peaceful. It is a world many of us who love reading these books would love to live in. Somehow, Alexander McCall Smith managed to make me feel that there is plenty more of goodness than I would normally believe. I read them before going to sleep, as a good night story. I smile even as I write this.

The best thing about this series is generally agreed to be Bertie, the eternal 6 year old. He's a lovely character. This volume reintroduces us to Bertie's travails, but also follows Angus Lordie & Domenica as they marry; Matthew & Elspeth and their triplets; Big Lou and her coffeeshop; and the delightfully narcissistic Bruce as he meets his double and trouble ensues...

It's a fun read for those who've enjoyed the previous books in this series.

Fans of Bertie will be pleased to know he enjoys a couple of small victories in this installment & even picks up some new allies. Love this series & always look forward to the next book.
