This is the second book in Alexander McCall Smiths series, The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. On the cover of this book is a quote from The New York Times Book Review, The Miss Marple of Botswana.

As someone who is only vaguely familiar with either Miss Marple or Botswana, Im surprised that Ive so far enjoyed the books in this series. The reading is light, the characters are engaging, the humor is character driven, and the country of Botswana is endlessly interesting.

Im looking forward to reading the rest of the books in the series.
