I just love this whole series! They are the type of stories that you curl up in a chair by the fire and just relax with. I was 'hooked' from the first book. Mma Ramotswe is a gentle, kind, and observant woman. Through the book, the author writes his love for Africa. Mma Ramotswe loves Botswana and helps the readers to love it, too. I could find nothing 'bad' in the books, nothing that I would have wished was not written. Pretty rare for a whole series! I recommend this series being read in the public schools.

Nice slow pace. Very relaxing and entertaining. Different from the usual mystery in many ways.

A short but very sweet book which introduces us to the lady detective for the first time. I very much enjoyed how she coped with and solved each investigation plus the insights into her personal life. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

This is the first book of the widely acclaimed series featuring Botswana's Precious Ramotswe and her tiny detective service. Although it is not technically an historical mystery, to us it seems timeless and has value in its presentation of a slow paced, dignified side of African life that is often overlooked. Precious' rare combination of refinement and ingenuity more than once helps her solve problems both big and small. Her understanding of certain situations as a female of a certain age holds her in good stead as well.

I listened to the amazing audio version from Recorded Books. The narrator, Lisette Lecat, was so delightful. Authentic. I cannot say enough about this book. It took me where I wanted to go. I was with the most charming characters. I fell in love with the place, the people, and definitely Mma Ramotswe. By the end, I was gabbing my heart and saying "how wonderful!" as tears came down my face. Please read this book! You will love it. Bravo, Mr. Smith. Can't wait for the next!
