Precious is busier than usual at the detective agency when she discovers an intruder in her house on Zebra Drive—and perhaps even more baffling--a pumpkin on her porch.

Sixth in the very cozy No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series set in Botswana, Africa. Though this series is definitely not heavy on the mystery, I love it, and each visit to Precious Ramotswe's world always leaves me feeling refreshed and hopeful. In this episode, there are issues with an intruder hiding under Mma Ramotswe's bed, one of the apprentices at Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni's garage quitting and getting involved with a rich older woman, Mma Ramotswe's first husband Note, a cruel and abusive jazz musician who has been away in Johannesburg, making a return visit to Gabarone, and Mma Makutsi taking dancing lessons. Enjoyable as always and hard to put down once you start one.

I love this whole series. Sweet, funny, charming. These are mysteries, but not dead-body mysteries, and there are typically a few under consideration at one time. The depictions of the characters and of Botswana are beautiful, as is the prose.

I have truly enjoyed every book in this series to date. This one was especially good because of the conflict over her marriage that Precious had. Rather than running from the conflict and confusion she faced it and came out much better for it.

Another great story in this series. A couple of new characters introduced who appear to be staying. This series is so very interesting for many reasons. The African attitude about life, love, harmony and everyday things is grand. Smith seems to know the people and that makes it really good. Entertaining and definitely cozy. Good clean reading.
