Another episode of the #1 Ladies Detective Agency and well worth the read

Takes you back to simpler times

by annam on Apr 30, 2008

I love Alexander McCall Smith's books from the Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency Series. This is the 9th book in the series. It's based off a lady who opens up a detective agency in Botswana. I feel as if I am right there in Africa with his descriptions of the surroundings and it's colorful characters. There is always one main detective story in which Mma Ramotswe (the lady detective) is trying to solve. In this book it is about a lady who is convinced that her mother was not her real mother. The story also evolves around the people Mma Ramotswe is connected to, her husband, her employee, etc. It is always a heartwarming book to read that leaves you with a smile on your face and a gentle feeling in your heart.
