I like the character Rose McQuinn. She is independent, lives alone, is a young widow, and rides a bicycle at a time when women didn't. The daughter of a police inspector, she is a relentless sleuth who like a dog with a bone. Her "male friend not fiance" Jack Macmerry (quite a name) discourages her detective work, and often doesn't believe her assertions. But in this story, Rose is, of course, in all her suspicions, but doesn't solve the mystery until the very end. I like this series because it's set in Edinburgh, and there are enough details about the city to make me happy.

I think I liked this one better than the previous one. Rose is settled at his home, her deerhunter keeps her company and she has a man in his life who, at least, doesn't shut her down at any step, only every three ones :P

She still refuses to acknowledge that his husband is dead, but, IMHO, this is more of a fa├žade to avoid a real relationship with Jack. Kudos to her! I really don't like Jack :P

The mystery is interesting enough, although, for me at least, the attraction lays on Rose. Listening the third book immediately after this one ended.

Oh, and Hilary Neville does a fantastic job narrating this series :)
