Clarksville, TN – If you are tired of watching the latest murder, robbery, sexual assault, wreck, and/or other horror on the nightly news, it’s time you discovered the books written by Scottish writer Alexander McCall Smith. No, you aren’t going to be reading about car chases or social media disasters or aliens.

What you are going to read about are characters with human emotions, deep thinking processes, dignity, kindness and morality—not the preachy kind—just genuine feeling for whether or not choices are the right ones and if a mistake is made, how to deal with it and move on.

Sound like something you can handle? Then you have a number of choices of book series from which to choose.
