Book Review

The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency often helps people find things they have lost. But they have never had to help a client find herself—until now, in this latest installment of Alexander McCall Smith’s best-selling and beloved series.
 
A kindhearted brother and sister have taken in a woman known only as “Mrs.”—a woman with no memory of her name or of how she came to Botswana. And so it’s up to Precious Ramotswe and her new co-director, Grace Makutsi, to discover the woman’s identity.
 
Meanwhile, motherhood proves to be no obstacle to Mma Makutsi’s professional success. As she settles into her role as partner at the agency, she also launches a new enterprise of her own: the Handsome Man’s De Luxe Café, a restaurant for Gaborone’s most fashionable diners. But even Miss 97 Per Cent isn’t fully prepared for the temperamental chefs, drunken waiters, and other challenges that come with running one’s own business. Help may come from an unexpected source, if only Mma Makutsi can swallow her pride and ask.
 
And next door to the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni is all too familiar with the difficult decisions of business owners. He is finally forced to make a tough choice, one that will bring major changes to both Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors and the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency—and that will require all of Mma Ramotswe’s finesse and patience to sort out.
 
With sympathy and indefatigable good humor, Mma Ramotswe and her friends see one another through these major changes and discover along the way what true friendship really means.

    This is another winner from Alexander McCall Smith. And I think it will become one of my favorites. Written as always, with his usual warmth, and great affection for the people and cultures of Africa. This story made my heart swell with the goodness of its people. Some gentle mysteries, and delightful conclusions. I so appreciate a story that doesn't keep me feeling anxious, the world does that daily. The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency stories are all gems, and this is one of Smith's finest.

    This book was another story filled with laughter, joy and surprise. While reading this journey of life for the characters that I have grown to love I also feel the author whispering in my ear " keep reading you'll love what comes next". Not sure who I love more....

    As usual, Alexander McCall Smith has done it again. I feel that I know the characters and thoroughly enjoy the next episodes of their lives. This one was, as always, engaging and provocative. The author doesn't hesitate to question his characters and make them deal with personal challenges. Thank you, Sir, and waiting for the next one.

    My least favorite book in the series. It lacked the charm of the other stories. Have read all the books in the Ladies #1 Detective Agency unfortunately this one failed in its appeal.
  • He does it again
