Summary, etc.:
"One of the author's most beloved characters is back--and once again she will have to call upon her powers of deduction and her unflappable moral code to unravel a new philosophical mystery. In Edinburgh, rumors and gossip abound. But Isabel well knows that such things can't be taken at face value. Still, the latest whispers hint at mysterious goings-on, and who but Isabel can be trusted to get to the bottom of them? At the same time, she must deal with the demands of her two small children, her husband, and her rather tempestuous niece, Cat, whose latest romantic entanglement comes--to no one's surprise--with complications. Still, even with so much going on, Isabel, through the application of good sense, logic, and ethics, will, as ever, triumph"-- Provided by publisher.
A wealthy Edinburgh resident reaches out to Isabel with an unusual request: he would like her to become the executor of his large Highland estate. Isabel demurs, but he presses on. Which of his three cousins should his estate go to: the bohemian artist, the savvy city property developer, or the quiet, unassuming bachelor? Meanwhile, Cat seems to have found her match in Leo. But Isabel suspects he is more interested in Cat's access to the family trust. -- adapted from jacket
