Likely a number of you have read some or all of Alexander McCall Smith's series of books by the name of The Number One Ladies' Detective Agency. For the uninitiated, this is a series of eleven (so far) books set in Botswana, Africa, that highlight a 'traditionally built' (I love that term) woman by the name of Mma Precious Ramotswe - a female private investigator who takes on, and solves, various cases in her slow-but-sure style, spreading bits of wisdom as she goes about her life.
The books are light reads that I have found to be delightful interludes over the years. One of my aunts just loaned me the latest two books in the series, and I am now working on the second of those, The Double Comfort Safari Club. I'd highly recommend them as a quick summer read if you're looking for a book that's humourous, upbeat, and somehow feel-good throughout.
* Glad so many people are enjoying these books!
