The first of the The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series.
Mma Precious Ramotswe sets up a one-woman detective agency in Gaborne, the capital of her native Botswana. She is shrewd and observant and makes a go of it, despite the naysayers. The book is a collection of short episodes, loosely tied together. Her good nature helps lead her to find satisfactory resolutions for most of her clients.
Enjoyable, if frothy.
