Book 7 in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series.

"There is, to begin with, a disturbing case of blackmail and theft from the government catering college; then, while on an errand for her husband to the Mokolodi Game reserve, Mma Ramotswe is seconded to investigate an unpleasant atmosphere that may be down to witchcraft - or something worse. And all the time Mma Ramotswe has weighty questions of a philosophical nature to consider, such as whether it is right to find happiness in small things like a new pair of blue shoes, a slice of cake or a red sunset over the Kalahari."

Just got back from home (down south) didn't realise I'd be there that long or be without internet. I've got another ring book to read before this one but should get to it soon! Hope that the move goes well.
