Corduroy Mansions - Alexander McCall Smith

So far, we are just being introduced to the cast of characters as they start a regular weekday morning. It's using 3rd person omniscient POV for each character, which can be a little wearing to read for so many characters, but so far it's working well. I'm entertained and curious to see how the character storylines will interact.
