In this latest installment in the cherished No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, Mma Ramotswe must balance family obligations with the growing needs of one of Charlies pet projects. Precious Ramotswe loves her dependable old van. Yes, it sometimes takes a bit longer to get going now, and it has developed some quirks over the years, but it has always gotten the job done. This time, though, the worldand Charliemay be asking too much of it, for when he borrows the beloved vehicle, he returns it damaged. And, to make matters worse, the interior seems to have acquired an earthy smell that even Precious cant identify. But the olfactory issue is not the only mystery that needs solving. Mma Ramotswe is confronted by a distant relative, Blessing, who asks for help with an ailing cousin. The help requested is of a distinctly pecuniary nature, which makes both Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni and Mma Makutsi suspicious. And there is no peace at home, either, as the new neighbors are airing their marital grievances rather loudly. Still, Mma Ramotswe is confident that the solutions to all of these difficulties are there to be discoveredas long as she is led by kindness, grace, and logic and can rely on the counsel of her friends and loved ones.

Just can't stand the new narrator's voices for many of the beloved characters.

I have loved the No. 1 Ladies' Detective agency from the very first book. I was a little disappointed with this volume because there was not much of a mystery to solve and too much Mma Grace Makutsi and not enough Mma Precious Ramotswe. Still love the characters and the vicissitudes of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors and Precious' husband Mr J. L. B. Matekoni. If you possibly have the option, listen to this series for the great Botswana dialect. Kristi & Abby Tabby
