★★★★

The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency #1) by Alexander McCall Smith

Precious Ramotswe is the only lady detective in Botswana. In this first book in the series, Mma. Ramotswe's first several cases are shared in chapters set up somewhat like vignettes. We are introduced to Precious and the other characters who will make appearances throughout these vignettes and also in future books in the series. The rich culture of Botswana is shared – both the delightful and the disturbing aspects. The book is peppered with gentle, wry humor. I found it delightful.

So glad you discovered them.

I agree, BnB. I was in the exact right mood for this book. Good to know they get even better - I've got more Mma. Ramotswe stories to look forward to.

Karin | 6997 comments I like these as well--most of them have been 4 star reads for me. That said, I read the first book when I was visiting my mother back when there was only one or two out.
