Read in April, 2009

This story took me deeper into the traditions of Botswana and their many gentle people, and gave some insight into the broader African conflicts - but mostly it was a wonderful story of Mma Ramotswe and her Detective Agency. The result of the cases that Mma Ramotswe takes on very often end up helping others in a very sensible way, and in the midst of her investigations we are also pulled in to her lovely life, where she is engaged to a very kind man who has surprisingly taken in two orphan children. The cases are interesting, the family life is interesting, and the escapades are fun as well – with a tiny suspicion of possible danger thrown in for some more spice.
A very fun fast read.
