In this 13th audiobook in Alexander McCall Smith's 44 Scotland Street series, life continues in Edinburgh, Scotland, as summer returns. Children endure the challenges of growing up, while adults fall in and out of love amid the stress of their professional lives. This book seems less accessible on audio than in print because it centers on a large number of characters who rarely interact, making it tricky to keep their individual lives and stories straight. Despite this confusion, narrator Robert Ian Mackenzie performs the book in a pleasant tone with effective timing and expression that keep listeners engaged.
