What I learned from this book: 1. May-Dec. relationships can work in the reverse of the usual way.2. May-Dec. relationships of the standard variety can be troublesome.3. The Scot's view of Americans is not always flattering.4. Birth control is always a good idea.I enjoy AMS's writing very much and this series is entertaining. I do find Isabel to be quite wordy at times and AMS never says in 5 words what 15 will say equally as well. Additionally, her constant apologizing gets on my nerves after awhile; someone in her 40's should be able to deal with a rude niece firmly instead of groveling around. I do like this series very much and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, easy read without any tension or mystery.
