I enjoy most detective fiction, but Mma Ramotswe is one of the few detectives I would actually like to know. I also love regional fiction, and the glimpses of Africa and the blend of native and British influences on the culture are fascinating. Of course this is also cozy fiction, so there again, I give it stellar marks. I think most readers will. I think I am going to start calling myself "traditionally built."

For fans of Mma Ramotswe and her chums this is a must read. However I found this 5th outing in the series was not as compelling as the earlier novels. And the case that Mma was working on was not as interesting as some of the others in the past. However, the wonderful sense of humor was present on almost every page and the strong sense of place and character added up to a satisfying visit with what are now old friends.
