Friends, Lovers, Chocolate by Alexander McCall Smith

Friends Lovers, Chocolate
(Isabel Dalhousie or The Sunday Philosophy Club #2)
by Alexander McCall Smith
261 pages / 8 hours, 23 minutes

"When Isabel’s niece, Cat, asks Isabel to run her delicatessen while she attends a wedding in Italy, Isabel meets a man with a most interesting problem. He recently had a heart transplant, and is suddenly plagued with memories of events that never happened to him. The situation appeals to Isabel as a philosophical question. Is the heart truly the seat of the soul? ...could the memories be connected with the donor’s demise" --book jacket

The characters are wonderful, and I love McCall Smith's description of the musings in Isabel's mind.  The book dragged in spots, though, and when it was over I felt like something important was missing.  If the next one in the series doesn't improve, I may not continue with it.
