Review by phoebesmum
These seem to become slighter with every instalment in the series – this one took me about two hours – but it’s nice to see Mma Makutsi coming into her own.

Further incidents in the No. 1 ladies detective agency - a male competitor has set up, and life becomes even more troubled. Fortunately Mr Matekoni has recovered from his depression,but the apprentices have not changed that much. Mma Makutsi searches for love - can precious Ramotswe do anything to help?Perhaps not as wonderful as the earleir works but still an enthraling read, full of hte joys of life.
Review by johnthefireman
Another charming view of the better side of African life. This one, though, tangles seriously with adulterous husbands and saved Christians, and begins to address the changes that are taking place in society, including 'that disease which has run this way and that through the country'.
Review by TheoClarke
The continuing warm, witty tale of fallible well-meaning humanity in Botswana. This time the focus is on Mma Makutsi (Precious Ramotswe's assistant) although Mma Ramotswe remains the main protagaonist.
Review by Eruntane
Another great Ladies' Detective Agency story. Thankfully Mma Makutsi's story was not as depressing as it might have been. And has anyone else ever wondered why the younger apprentice appears not to have a name?
