Have you read any of Mr. Smith’s books. He has several different sereis. One of them has been made into a series of TV shows– The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency. They are all delightful. I am reading his series called 44 Scotland Street– about a group of people living in apartments in Edinburgh. Reminds me a bit of P.G. Wodehouse. Perfect for cold weather. Nothing too terrible is going to happen and you get to know some delightful individuals throughout the series.
