This good condition paperback was bought secondhand from a shop at the Aylsham end of the Bure Valley Railway in Norfolk.
It tells the story of the arrival of Mma Makutsi's baby which in turn makes Mma Ramotswe very busy at the No 1. Ladies Detective Agency.

REVIEW:-"I enjoyed this book as I have done all the others in the series. I felt that it was slightly superior to The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party which I read recently as it made me laugh more. I liked two passages in particular (Talking of our children)"We wanted to protect them, she thought, of course we did, but as we knew we could not and they would have to deal with the disappointments and shocks of life as best they could. All we could do was to give them that one thing that they could use to protect themselves from all of that. At least we could do that. That thing was love, of course" . and
(on an extremely hot and humid day when Mma Ramotswe's husband had suggested that they buy a bigger fridge to enable them to sit in it) 'She imagined herself lying in the vegetable tray perhaps, while her husband leaned against the icebox'.

All good fun and a break from anything too heavy".

I am reserving this book for two other bookcrossers.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

Hurrah ! I love these books. With all the news from Zimbabwe just recently I ‘m wondering if Grace Mugabe was the inspiration for Violet Sephotho ! I will follow both their futures with interest.
