really liked it
Read from August 25 to 28, 2012

I find the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books to be fun, light reads. These books take me out of my usual rat race. They slow my pace down and teach me about human beings from another's insightful perspective - Mma Ramotswe's, the detective of the agency. In this story the reader learns more about her home life - husband, two adopted children, her garden - and about her agency - located attached to her husband's car shop, her assitant's personal life and about some of the worker's at her husband's shop. All of these homey details serve to make this a cozy read. And, the mysteries are so simple - a woman wanting Mma Ramotswe to find family for her and the identify of the author of the threatening letter. No murderers here to chase. Just regular people with common problems - all needing helf to find happiness. A nice relaxed fun read!

Anne  (Booklady) Molinarolo I'm wondering about this series. Is it worth reading?

message 2: by Bea (new) - rated it 4 stars

It is light and a bit mindless. For me the right book when I am overstressed with work. Not really a mystery - more a way of looking at life and relationships that are from another culture. Nice break to all the heavy thriller mystery types I usually read.

Anne  (Booklady) Molinarolo Thanks Bea. I'll look into the series.
