A very refreshing book. I loved the location and local characters of Botswana, and the sense of community. A relaxed pace, a likeable detective.
Sending to another bookcrosser.
Received via mail today. Thanks Salemhouse!

I really enjoyed this book. I was expecting a typical mystery where the whole book centers around one major crime but was pleasantly surprised with the variety of cases. Precious Ramotswe opened the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency "to help people with the problems in their lives". She was very unique in the methods used to solve the problems. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

This is a nice, easy read with lots of descriptions about life in Botswana. This is really a collection of short stories centered around the same characters.

Very very funny book. I've never read anything occuring in Bostwana. Precious is delicious in her tiny white van.
The book's starting its journey through Europe and then...
I found this book yesterday in my mailbox ! Thanks, bilbi !
It is now on top of my Mt.TBR...
I really enjoyed this book, very different from the usual detective book...You learn about Precious's father's life, about her life, you learn a lot about Botswana...
I love the way she solves the various cases !
Thanks for the ring, bilbi !

Lot of fun reading this book. I totally agree with you Boucli, I like the way Precious solve the different cases. Thanks all for this book.
Sent to cornelie23 today.
Received today... As I had no more bookring waiting to be read, I will start right now.
I finally had no time to read this book and since I received the french edition yesterday, I will send it to Nadou today.
I'm afraid this book is likely to be lost :-\ lesezeichen starts another 'ring
so that the remaining participants would receive it.
roadrunner, I hope it's just a "temporary loss" ...
I'm sorry to hear that this book has gone missing but yea for Lesezeichen! She did the same thing for the I Capture The Castle bookring that we were both on. She rocks! That bookring did eventually show up (after three months!) so there is still hope for this book.
