Library book sale. Hardcover.
In this fifth novel in The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, we are once again transported to Gaborone, the capital of Botswana, and enter the world of Mma Precious Ramotswe and her friends.
Mma Ramotswe is engaged to Mr. J. L. B. Matchani. She wonders when the wedding date will be set, but she is anxious to avoid putting too much pressure on her fiance. For, indeed, he has other things on his mind - notably a frightening request made of him by Mma Potokwane, the pushy matron of the Orphan Farm.
And there is the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency to tend to. Mma Ramotswe has been hired to determine whether the several suitors of a wealthy woman - who made her fortune in hair braiding salons - are really interested in her, or only in her money. A difficult task, but no one can match Mma Ramotswe in resourcefulness and spot on intuition.

Thanks so much for the trade. I can't wait to read it!
Another enjoyable book in the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. I thought this book was a little lacking on the mystery side of things. It didn't seem to be much of a mystery or much of the book devoted to it.

I've been waiting to read this one for a long time. Thanks for sending it!
Another fine entry in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. I just find these books so charming. As blackadder75 said, it's a little lacking on the mystery side of things, but that's OK. Longtime readers will be satisfied by the ending of this book.
The book now is headed to candieb in Texas as a RABCK. Enjoy!
I'm trying to get these together to read them. I might end up hanging on to this a bit while I get the others and read them. Thank you so much for sharing!
