I dearly love Mma Ramotswe and her friends and family. This series is one of the real joys of reading.

One bit of free advice: If you can, get at least one of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series on tape or CD and listen to it. The rhythm of the language--even in English--and the pronunciation of the names are fascinating and add to the enjoyment. (After all, how do you really pronounce "Mma"? You'd never guess it right by yourself.)

I really love this whole series. Precious Mamotswe is a wonderful character, very calm and methodical. Like Jane Marple, she uses her knowledge of people and intuition to solve the mystery.

I love this book. I have read, re-read it, and will probably do so again. The premise is interesting, the characters are so well done that I feel as though they are friends. I am also drawn to the authors' description of Africa. He obviously loves it, and draws you into his love. I look forward to more in this series, as well as trying out some of his other series as well.
