About this deal

The first half gathers information in bits and pieces, while the ‘solving process’ begins in the latter part. Anytime you need a laugh or a lift, I can highly recommend this series, paired with Lisette Lecat's impeccable audio narration. Mma Ramotswe, though, would say, “No, do not think that bad things – like cruelty and lack of mercy – will triumph over things that are good – like kindness and decency. This is another cheering tale where human nature wanders off on the wrong tack to cause problems that are resolved, leaving the reader feeling comforted and reassured that the world is just and pleasant. The agency was going through a quiet spell—several major inquiries had recently been satisfactorily concluded—and she had no appointments that day.

Tea had remarkable calming properties when administered mid-crisis, and that, perhaps, was what was needed now. I picked it up at random from the library and wasn’t impressed by the lack of dead bodies in a cozy mystery (blame it on my bloodlust). I was gifted this advance copy by Penguin Random House Canada, Knopf Canada, and NetGalley and was under no obligation to provide a review.

His career has been a varied one: for many years he was a professor of Medical Law and worked in universities in the United Kingdom and abroad. Ladies’ Detective Agency is known for, assure us that in the end, all these matters will be set right.

Mma Ramotswe continued to the side of the garage, where a white-painted door constituted the entrance to the agency office. I even tried witching from ebook to audio (the Lisette Lecat's voice was sooo soothing, I kinda want her to read me bedtime stories). Exuding gentleness and a philosophy many of us could learn from, Precious Ramotswe and friends remind us of the more important things in life.In a world where there aren’t always answers and at a time when we are all looking for answers, this is a fabulous read. B. Matekoni would have replaced the van at the drop of a hat, but Mma Ramotswe was as loyal to machinery as she was to people, and steadfastly refused to countenance the purchase of a new vehicle. Over the years Mma Makutsi has promoted herself from secretary, to assistant detective, to co-detective, to co-director. Of course, Grace cannot accept or credit Charlie's unorthodox methods of solving the case, now concluded with a happy ending.

I wish to thank NetGalley and Penguin Random House Canada for the ARC of this heartwarming and delightful book.B. Matekoni was busy performing open-heart surgery on a battered Land Rover, and did not see her, but Fanwell, his face streaked with grease, raised a spanner in salutation. All of the regular Botswana crew is back in this story focused on the growing office tension between Precious and Grace.
