There are times when ladies must use all their wisdom and good sense to face life's problems and mysteries. Mma Ramotswe, owner of the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency, keeps her wits about her as she looks into why the country's star goalkeeper isn't saving goals. Georgina turns her rudeness into a virtue when she opens a successful hotel. Italian shop-keeper Fabrizia shows her bravery when her husband betrays her. And in Suffolk during the Second World War, gentle La proves that music really can make a difference.

With his trademark gift for storytelling, international bestselling author Alexander McCall Smith brings us five tales of love, heartbreak, hope and the cleverness of ladies.

This was a nice little read. I usually don't care that much for short stories, but this one was perfect for the circumstances.

REVIEW:-"I didn't realise this book consisted of short stories when I requested it so it wasn't quite what I expected. However I quite enjoyed the Mma Ramotswe story as I love the ladies detective agency series and had forgotten that story which apparently was taken from a full length novel I'd already read some time ago.

The second story about Georgina was mildly amusing but I didn't believe that her brusque manner would have been so popular with hotel guests. I certainly wouldn't want her in charge of anywhere I was intending to stay!

The 3rd story, Fabrizia, was a bit boring and predictable and reminded me again why I'm not fond of short stories.
Namaqualand Daisies I found hard to fathom and the last and longest story was a condensed version of La's Orchestra Saves the World which I've read recently so I didn't read that one.
I don't think I would bother to read any further short story anthologies by this author but I'm very keen to read any more detective agency ones that I haven't come across so far."

Released today at my local Boots chemists store on a bookshelf which raises money for a cancer charity.

Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

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.

This book seems to have been taken from the Boots bookshelf. Maybe it will even get another journal entry in due course 😀??
