The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection

The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection
The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection is the most recent addition to the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith. Like all the other books, it is charming. In this one, Precious Ramotswe finally gets the chance to meet one of her idols: Clovis Anderson, the author of the book that launched Mma Ramotswe's career. The results are not quite what either of them anticipated.

Along the way, Mma Ramotswe and her friends deal with all the little issues that make life so interesting. Mma Potokwane has been removed from her post at the children's orphan farm. Fanwell, one of the mechanics at Speedy Motors, faces some serious legal difficulties. And Grace Makusi and her new husband have to deal with an unscrupulous contractor while getting their new home built.

Of course, all ends happily for all of our favorite characters, and life goes on pleasantly in Botswana.
