Another enjoyable day spent with Precious Ramotswe! This time she has a problem - her beloved little white van is dying, and she cannot tell her mechanic husband, because she is sure he will condemn it to the scrap-heap. Grace Makutsi has a problem too - her nemesis, Violet Sephotho, has taken a job at her fiance's furniture shop, and Grace is sure Violet intends to seduce Phuti away from her. And the new case they are investigating involves a soccer team that is losing for unknown reasons, and the two women are going to have to learn about football in order to solve it. Life goes on in Botswana, and each new book in the series is a pleasant interlude spent with familiar characters that have become dear to Smith's readers.

It's hard for me to rate this book compared to the others in the series because once I love a series, I love the whole thing. This book is more of the same. Everyday drama involving love of a car, love of a man, and as always, love of a country. Small intrigues and big wisdom. The writing is simple and clear, the characters are revealed a bit more in every book.
