Angus and Domenica are newly engaged, and now they must negotiate the complex merger of two households. Domenica is also forced to deal with the return of an old flame, while Big Lou has begun the search for a new one, boldly exploring the new world of online datingnbsp;and coming up with an Elvisnbsp;impersonatornbsp;on the first try. And in Bertie's family, there's a shift in power as his father Stuart starts to stand up to overbearing mother, Irene--and then there's Bertie,nbsp;whonbsp;has been thinking that he might want to start over with a new family andnbsp;sonbsp;puts himself up for adoption on eBay.nbsp;nbsp;With his signature charm and gentle wit Alexander McCall Smithnbsp;vividly portrays the lives of Edinburgh's mostnbsp;unique andnbsp;beloved characters.
