I really liked this one. I think it was as good or even better than the first in the series. The story is still, characteristically, warm and engaging, but the story line seems a bit more involved and the real-life problems of the region are also given some notice- lightly, but at least the author does recognize that everything is not peaches and roses.

Not a conventional mystery - a wonderfully charactered series unraveling the mysteries of human nature.

This is the best-written of the "No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" series, with the exception of the original. The other books felt like filler, but this one had lots of sub-plots and was very enjoyable to read. If you liked "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency," be sure to read this sequel!

I loved the book as Precious continues on with her delightful story finding out she was never married to Note and being very worried that she still was. Somone hiding under her bed gets squashed when she lies down on it for a rest and someone leaves her a very nice pumpkin.

I every much enjoyed this book and I think it is one of my favorites of the series. I really enjoyed reading about the personal lives of the characters. Smith has such an easy way of writing that I just feel like they are friends. I found this book charming.

I want to live in this world, not geographically but psychologically and spiritually. So entertaining and refreshing! This is one of the best in the series I think.

I read this book when it first came out and recently received another copy as a gift. It is hard to believe these books, including the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, are written by a man. We should all be married to a guy like Alexander McCall Smith because he understands women perfectly. The books in this series leave an indelible picture of day-to-day life in Botswanna, the importance of drinking tea, and the mysteries of an often cheerful universe. This is a lovely read.
