I picked this up recently at the library's used book sale, when I was looking for books to share. I know lots of folks like the books in this The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, but the only one of Smith's books I've read was The Sunday Philosophy Club. But I'm about to remedy that, since I've recently added a copy of TN1LDA to my Mt. TBR (hoping to read it in the next few months, since it seems as though everyone else already has ;)
This is the 9th book in TN1LDA series. Hope the next reader enjoys it!

From the cover -
In the latest installment of this infinitely enjoyable and best-selling series, Precious Ramotswe is doing what she does best - helping people with their problems and enjoying the simple pleasures of life.
Mma Ramotswe is busy investigating her latest case: a woman who is looking for her family. The problem is, the woman doesn't know her real name or whether any members of her family are living. Meanwhile, Phuti Radiphuti has bought Mma Makutsi a glorious new bed. Unfortunately, it will inadvertently cause her several sleepless nights. And life is no less complicated at Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, where Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni - Mma Ramotswe's estimable husband - has fallen under the sway of a doctor who has promised a miracle cure for his daughter's medical condition, which Mma Ramotswe finds hard to believe. But Precious Ramotswe deals with these difficulties with her usual grace and good humor - and in the end discovers that the biggest miracles in life are often the small ones.

I found this in Westminster MD at a cafe. I am about to travel to Botswana this summer and have the rest of the series. I plan to take this book with me and read it after finishing all of the other ones. I hope to leave it there (or in Ghana or South Africa, because I will also be there). Hopefully someone picks it up there after I am finished.
