Blue Shoes and Happiness - No 1 Ladies Detective Agency, Bk 7 - Audio CD - Unabridged Author:Alexander McCall Smith, Lisette Lecat (Narrator) A cobra has been found in Precious Ramotswe's office.

But there's trouble brewing in Mma Makutsi's own life. Her greedy uncles are demanding an extra-large bride price from her well-to-do fiancé, a man of substance, Phuti Radiphuti, and though money may buy her that fashionably narrow (and uncomfortable) pair of blue shoes, it won't buy her the happiness that Mma Ramotswe promises her she'll find in simpler things - in contentment with the world and enough tea to smooth over the occasional bumps in the road.
I especially like listening to this series on CD. The narrator adds so much to the story because of her charming accent used in the telling. It creates a better sense of who the characters are and the setting the story takes place in.
