I had forgotten how much I enjoy these books. Mma Ramotswe can solve must problems with a cup of red bush tea and thoughtful compassion. I didn't care for the Sunday Philosophy Club books by the same author, but love this series. The Miracle at Speedy Motors is a refreshing change of pace compared to most best sellers.

One of the members was not so impressed with this book, but I found it to be as delightful as the rest that I have read. Such a wonderful story. We get to know more about Mr. Maketoni and his sweetness, and their daughter. Mma R. is as sweet as ever and so understanding. It almost makes you want to move to Botswana. The HBO series brings the place to life, which I thought was great, because I couldn't properly imagine Botswana, so I also recommend seeing the series to help you picture where it is. Bottom line: I loved this one, too!

Similar to the other sequels in the "No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Series," this book is enjoyable, but does not live up to the original. At this point, the timeline of the series is really dragging, as though the author can't imagine what any of his characters will be doing past next week. He also hints at and tiptoes around the AIDS crisis, repeatedly, without actually mentioning it. I suppose that it is an everyday part of the characters' lives and not worth making a special plotline for, but it would be nice to see a call to action come from the series.
