The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
by Alexander McCall Smith

Buy The Book

Had a great old time with this one.  At first I thought it was going to be a serious and archaic read (hey, look at the cover).  Location--modern Botswana, Africa.

Aaaa...h, then the fun began.  I was tickled pink by Precious Ramotswe, dress size 22, inheritor of her beloved Father's estate, proprietor of the first and only Ladies' Detective Agency.  You will be taken in by her unyieldingly honest pursuits, cut-to-the-chase techniques, and delicate ways with disturbed clientele. 

I, a sleuth of sorts, was caught red-handed making incorrect estimations of the outcome of each case, the book itself and the wonderful country of Botswana.

Go ahead, pick it up!  It's quick!  Oops, did I mention it is comes in a series of books that you cannot put down once you start?  I liken this phenomena to watching the A&E series of Pride and Prejudice (aka: AEPP syndrome). 
Can be dangerous.  Enjoy friends! 

Happy Reading

Thanks Betty for referring and lending me this gem!  I hope you and John do get called on your future mission to Botswana!
