What you see is the glow of the Makutsi Ramotswe friendship. I have two minor reservations. 1) The title seems to refer to a future event rather than something in this book. 2) The resolution of both mysteries is off-stage although I am prepared to accept this. If Mma Ramotswe is satisfied than I guess I will be too. ( )

I always come away from books in this series with a smile on my face and a warm glow in my heart. They also make me long for Africa. They capture so much that is good about the continent. Undemanding to read and some may say simplistic and predictable but every few months I certainly need to indulge myself in the charm and good hearted ness that ooze from these pages. To quote " The human heart, you see, ....is pretty much the same wherever one goes.....all human hearts are the same, no matter how different we are on the outside". ( )

This is a wonderful and tender story. Smith takes great care of his characters and introduces us to a mythical figure from the series. I love this world so much. ( )

In this novel, Pcrecious Ramotswe faces three cases. In one her friend Mme Potokwani has a new member of the board of the children's orphanage she manages who wishes to build a new central facility for the orphanage which would defeat the philosophy of the place. Why is he forcing his plans on her?

The second case in involves Fanwell who works in Speedy Motors and is arrested for car theft.

Case three concerns the building of the new house of Mme Makutsi and her husband and what appears may be a crooked builder.

The big surprise in this novel is the appearance of Clovis Andersen, the man who wrote the book, The Principles of Private Detection, which is the bible the Ladies Detective Agency follows so successfully. ( )

The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection is an especially good addition to the series.

Novel features a number of disconcerting occurences in which Precious and Grace are more personally vested. They can use all the help they can get. And conveniently a special someone comes to visit and does assist in a major way.

This addition further develops slow-paced series.

As always, great read!

In Botswana, home to the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency for the problems of ladies, and others, it is customary - one might say very customary - to enquire of people whom you meet whether they have slept well.

The verandah of the President's Hotel is not a place in which a great deal happens. This is not in any way to disparage it: it is important that there should be places where not a great deal happens because such places remind us that life is not entirely and exclusively made up of exciting or significant events. Every life needs spells of calm, every life needs expanses of time when nothing much occurs, when one may sit for several hours in the same place and gaze upon static things, upon some waxen-leafed desert plant, perhaps, or a patch of dry grass. Or a group of cattle standing under a tree for the shade, the slow, flicking movement of their tails the only indication that they are animate beasts, not rocks; or a sky across which no clouds, or perhaps only the merest wisp of white, moves.
