I just loved this audiobook. Friends, Lovers, Chocolate is the 2nd in the series and it didn't disappoint. A lovely listening experience for those who love the gentler side of life with a mystery thrown in. The voice of the reader and the interspersed music were excellent and gave the story life. I'm looking forward to the next one.

The gentle inquisitions Isabelle applies to every aspect of her life make this entertaining tale a pleasure to listen to. Well read by Phyllis Logan: all the characters come to life and we feel for Isabelle as her developing friendship with James disturbs old wounds. My only complaint is that I cannot enjoy the entire series unabridged from Audible, as I am now intent on finding out what Isabelle and James will get up to next.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I have started on this series having read all the Ladies Detective books and almost all the Scotland Street. This book did not disappoint and I have immediately bought the next episode. Isabel Dalhousie is a great character and I'm looking forward to hearing her development. By far the best thing about this book though is the narration by Phyllis Logas (Mrs Hughes in Downton Abbey) who has such a beautiful lilting reading voice. I hope she is narrating some of the others too. I would therefore recommend it to anyone.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Friends, Lovers, Chocolate?
Isabel meeting the donor's mother.
Which character – as performed by Phyllis Logan – was your favourite?

Again, the mothers describing the loss of their sons.
Any additional comments?
As with the Scotland Street books, Edinburgh is an additional character,
