Synopsis

This remarkably fresh and charming best-seller took the WD by storm upon its publication. It has since earned two Booker Judges’ Special Recommendations and was voted one of the “International Books of the Year and the Millennium” by the Times Literary Supplement. Mma “Precious” Ramotswe sets up a detective agency in Botswana on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, making her the only female detective in the country. At first, cases are hard to come by. But eventually, troubled people come to Precious with a variety of concerns. Potentially philandering husbands, seemingly schizophrenic doctors, and a missing boy who may have been killed by witch doctors all compel Precious to roam about in her tiny van, searching for clues. Chosen as a Top Ten Mystery by the Organization of Independent Booksellers, U.S.A., The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency is that rare novel that imparts a sage wisdom while inspiring hearty laughter and lasting smiles.

I love a good detective story, but this one was very different. I wasn't sure what to expect, and I didn't think I would stick past the first CD. BUT... I'm glad that I did. This 'detective' is a very clever woman, and I admire her values. I began to enjoy each story and I felt as though this main character was a good friend. I've decided to read her next book to see if the story of her new life continues. (I won't say what it is, for those of you who want to read this.)
