  • good plot twist Jul 18, 2011
    by MARY W

    Plot is the redeeming feature of this book. The central character did not appeal to me except in her persistence to uncover the truth. Not a book I would keep to read again. Perhaps the author's other stories are better crafted, since he seems to have quite a following in our book club.

  • Easy read Aug 7, 2008

    This is one of three in a series......characters are personable, well-identified and no "yucky" language spoken. Plots are fun and simple but well planned out. a fun read with some lingering attachments to the characters.

  • Too much philosophy Dec 10, 2007
    by PAAF

    Having read and enjoyed the No 1 Ladies Detective series, I tried Isabel's Sunday Philosophy Club and found myself distracted from the story lines by too much rhetoric and moralizing. I may try one more book in the series, but this one was a little bit of a disappointment .
