I love this book! I think it is just as good as #1 Detective Agency! The characters are charming and interesting. There is Pat, who starts off the novel. She is moving into 44 Scotland Stret and her flatmate is Bruce. They get along well and Pat starts to fall for Bruce who is very conceited about his looks. The other characters in the book are great too! They consists of Bertie the 6-year old genius and his overbearing mother. Domenica a retired woman who is still having fun and enjoying her life. Matthew, Pat's under achiever boss, who is so friendly and nice you kind of feel bad for him sometimes.
These characters grow on you and you want to keep reading about them!
