From the Publisher
Precious Ramotswe is the eminently sensible and cunning proprietor of the only ladies’ detective agency in Botswana. In Tears of the Giraffe she tracks a wayward wife, uncovers an unscrupulous maid, and searches for an American man who disappeared into the plains many years ago. In the midst of resolving uncertainties, pondering her impending marriage to a good, kind man, Mr. J. L. B. Matekoni, and the promotion of her talented secretary (a graduate of the Botswana Secretarial College, with a mark of 97 per cent), she also finds her family suddenly and unexpectedly increased by two.

Tears of the Giraffe is the second in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. It is a cute cozy mystery. This time Mma Ramotswe sets out to discover what happened to an American boy who disappered 10 years ago.

She takes on an assistant who finds out a wife has been unfaithful. Out of this some moral dilemmas are explored.

She also becomes engaged.

This series is for the person who loves to read about a 'gentler' time when people cared and acted properly. I love the way Precious talks about how people should be "That's the trouble with the world. Everyone thinks that they can make their own decisions about what is right and wrong"

The description of Botswana is fantastic. I wish I could visit there someday.
