Author: Alexander McCall Smith
In the life of Mma Ramotswe -- a woman duly proud of her fine traditional build -- there is rarely a dull moment, and in her newest round of adventures, challenges and intrigues, the same certainly holds true.

My husband and I both read this latest installment and we really enjoyed this one. It has more than one subplot, and held our attention. As always, the writing is wonderful. This series is like comfort food â always satisfying even if it doesn't have the most substance. No profanity, no real violenceâjust great entertainment. If you've never read this series, start with the first one, and just know that each one gets better and better!

If you haven't read the rest of the series, don't start here. Get on the waiting list for the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency and start there. Do it now!

If you have read the others, well, you don't need anyone to tell you that you will love the book. Mma Ramotswe, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, Mma Makustsi, Charlie the apprentice, and others are again up to their old ways, to the delight of readers around the world.

When this one came in, we pulled it from the mailbox at about 6 p.m. My wife finished it before we went to sleep that night. It's taking me a bit longer... but not much.

This is 8th in the series of the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency. I did not like it as well as its predecessors...maybe because there was less of Mma Ramotswe and more of Mma Makutsi and Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni.I doubt that this will deter a single reader because everyone wants to continue the series! I know I did.

I enjoy these books because the characters are always so constant. I love how Mma Makutsi talks to her shoes and is a little fiesty at times. I love how Mr. JLB Matekoni is quiet and unassuming and kind. I love Mma Ramotswe's philosphy on life and the way people should be treated. This book of the series had some good conflict which was solved to the betterment of all involved.

Life goes on in Botswana. Mma Ramotswe is asked by a distant cousin to look into 3 mysterious deaths at the hospital in her home town, and Rra JLB Matekoni wants to handle the investigation into a suspected philandering husband on his own. But The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency and Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors garage are going through a period of upheaval - Mma Makutsi has decided to resign, and so has the apprentice Charlie, who wants to start his own taxi service. Mma Ramotswe handles it all with her usual grace and deft touch, and the author's love for Botswana shines through his lyrical prose as always.
