really liked it

This was a lovely, easy, breezy read that I thoroughly enjoyed. The author painted a vivid portrait of the layered textures of life in Botswana. The detecting seems to be a backdrop for Mma Ramotswe to sew her seeds of philosophy about taking the middle path through life. But, she and her stalwart assistant, Mma Makutsi (97%) seem to unravel the mysteries set forth without getting into any danger. I would have given this a five star if there were more of an edge to the mysteries. And, who couldn't relate to buying a pair of shoes because of their beauty even though they weren't a good fit? This story should especially appeal to fashionistas.
