For fans of Alexander McCall Smith's many beloved series and romantic standalone novels, The Perfect Passion Company shows him at his most perceptive, playful, and generous.

Reviews for The Perfect Passion Company

'As always with McCall Smith, expect the kind of dialogue you wish you could have more often, keen observations, comic plot twists, and a main character to cheer for'  * Booklist * 'There is, as ever in his work, abundant delight ...  In his concern for right thought and conduct he is one of the most considerable and satisfying, as well as delightful, novelists working today' -- Allan Massie * The Scotsman *
