Publisher's Summary

Scotland Street witnesses the wedding of the century of Angus Lordie to Domenica Macdonald, but as the newlyweds depart on honeymoon Edinburgh is in disarray.

Recovering from the trauma of being best man, Matthew is taken up by a Dane called Bo, while Cyril eludes his dog-sitter and embarks on an odyssey involving fox-holes and the official residence of a cardinal. Narcissist Bruce meets his match in the form of a sinister doppelganger; Bertie, set up by his mother for fresh embarrassment at school, yearns for freedom; and Big Lou goes viral.

But the residents of Scotland Street rally, and order - and Cyril - is restored by the combined effects of understanding, kindness, and, most of all, friendship.

    "Very disappointing"

    I'm sorry not to able to say anything good about this book. It was boring, slow and a very weak storyline.

    Story
    "Reasonable Episode..."

    Personally, I felt that the storyline wasn't quite as interesting as captured in previous volumes however it lacked nothing in the telling so to speak. I must admit that, as always, I do not think that the narrator is the right person to tell this tale, ams as a consequence, has certain people sounding pompously inebriated, which is not the originally intended character portrayal. I enjoyed Bruce's identity switch and Bertie's brief time with Cyril - poor Cyril being shoved from pillar to post during his masters honeymoon. I especially liked Stuart getting caught by Irene looking up Paternity testing and of course Cyrils reunion with Angus after the honeymoon.
    A reasonable read.

    Beautifully read, with charming characters and a touch of pathos to high light the humour.

    "Hilarious"

    Lovely, gentle, amusing, thoughtful and thought-provoking storytelling. Several hilarious situations presented with satisfying conclusions. as well as some yet to be concluded. Great entertainment.

    "Another excellent story from AMS"

    A gentle tale but not at all lightweight. Au contraire there are many issues and morals brought to bear. Who cannot feel achingly sorry for wee Bertie and I long for the day when Stewart gets some balls!

    As for Cyril, a perfect little friend. Can't wait to get the next episode.

    "Addictive"

    Start at volume one. Listen to the whole series. Wait with impatience for the next instalment. And hope that the next one is where Bertie finally vanquishes the powers of darkness, a.k.a. his mother...

    Cracking narration by David Rintoul makes these books even better to listen to than to read.
