The Double Comfort Safari Club Paperback
Part of the The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series
Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi are called to a safari lodge in Botswana's Okavango Delta to carry out a delicate mission on behalf of a former guest.
The Okavango makes Precious appreciate once again the beauty of her homeland: it is a paradise of teeming wildlife, majestic grasslands and sparkling water.
However, it is also home to rival safari operators, fearsome crocodiles and disgruntled hippopotamuses.
What's more, Mma Makutsi still does not have a date for her wedding to Phuti Radiphuti and is feeling rather tetchy herself.
But Precious knows that with a little patience, just as the wide river will gently make its way round any obstacle, so will everything work out for the best in the end ...

The lives of Precious Ramotswe, her husband, friends and associates continue to follow the rythmns of the Botswanan seasons. Wisdom, humour and love help cope with tragedy and meanness. Again, more of the same, but very comforting...

Still more of the same. Charming, as ever. I appear to have missed the last couple in the series, but this hasn't made much difference. Mma Ramotswe's secretary has a bad few days as her finacee is in hospital following an accident. But even having his foot amputated doesn't seem overwhelmingly hard to cope with. Meanwhiel the detective agency putters on as usual. Some good news to distribute requires a lengthy trip up to the game parks, but no stories of lions or crocodiles will daunt our two traditionally built ladies - even if their canoe is very close to the waterline! The garage doens't feature very much this time around, the children even less so.Pleasant reading for sunny days, in a country where everybody (even the melon headed ones) still regards the traditional approaches as important.
