Summary
In this delightful sequel to the best-selling comedic novel My Italian Bulldozer , Paul Stuart's travels take him to a French village, where the local restaurant's haute cuisine leaves a lot to be desired.

Renowned Scottish cookbook writer Paul Stuart is hard at work on his new book, The Philosophy of Food, but complicated domestic circumstances, and two clingy cats, are making that difficult.

So when Paul's eccentric cousin Chloe suggests that he join her at the house she's rented in the French countryside, he jumps at the chance. The two quickly befriend the locals, including their twin-sister landladies, who also own the infamous local restaurant known to be the second-worst eatery in all of France. During their stay, the restaurant's sole waitress gives birth mid-dinner service and the maƮtre d' storms off after fighting with the head chef. Paul is soon drafted to improve the gastronomy of the village, while Chloe, ever on the hunt for her next romance, busies herself with distracting the handsome but incompetent chef. Could he be husband number six?

With all this local drama to deal with, Paul finds it next to impossible to focus on his writing, and that's before he learns that Chloe's past is far more complicated than he'd ever imagined. Paul will have to call upon al his experience--with food and with people--to bring order back to the village. And he may just learn something about family--and about himself--along the way.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The wildly prolific McCall Smith adds yet another series hero, Paul Stuart, to a list that includes Botswanan Precious Ramotswe, of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency; philosopher Isabel Dalhousie, of Edinburgh, who solves friends' problems in the series bearing her name; and Inspector Varg, of Sweden. This is actually the second Paul Stuart book, but the first, My Italian Bulldozer (2017), seemed like a quirky stand-alone about a man who somehow is forced to drive a bulldozer around Tuscany. But Paul, who has a beyond-enviable career as a successful cookbook writer and a unenviable way of getting entangled in perplexing situations, is back, this time in a less gimmicky adventure. Paul lives in Edinburgh, in a home with a view of the castle, but whose interior is ruled by the sociopathic-leaning Siamese cats of his editor/girlfriend. Deliverance from the ferocious felines comes with an invitation from his third cousin Chloe to finish his current book at her home in the French countryside. Chloe, with a slew of ex-husbands and lovers in her wake, is somewhat of a Wife of Bath figure, who keeps breaking into the account of Paul's writing pilgrimage to tell her own wacky stories. A hugely entertaining novel about a man who keeps getting into scrapes yet somehow finds his own way out of them.--Connie Fletcher Copyright 2019 Booklist"
