Found this book to be just as enjoyable as the last few I've read from the series.

Mr J L B Maketoni's first case was rather cringe-making - it was easy to see where it was headed - but turned out ok in the end. Do we ever find out his first name?...
What might [Mma Ramotswe] write - in that style - of Mma Makutsi, if she had to write her a testimonial? She divides the office doughnuts with complete impartiality. That would be a good recommendation, she thought; how a person divided a shared doughnut was a real test of integrity. A good person would cut the doughnut into two equal pieces. A shifty, selfish person would divide it into two pieces, but one would be bigger than the other and he would take that one himself. She had seen that happen.


But her thoughts were interrupted by one of the housemothers bringing them a large tin plate on which several pieces of fruit cake had been laid, along with a number of syrup sandwiches. The housemother handed the plate to Mma Ramotswe and went back to the children.
Mma Potokwani glanced at her friend. 'I think that is for both of us, Mma,' she said anxiously.
'Of course,' said Mma Ramotswe. 'Of course'.
