Click for availability and more information The Full Cupboard of Life, by Alexander McCall Smith

The Full Cupboard of Life is the fifth in Smith's series featuring the adventures of Precious Ramotswe and her No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency in Botswana. Smith has written yet another charming, fun-to-read tale with his delightful cast of characters. This reviewer recommends, if possible, to read the series in order of publication as the stories are, at times, built on events and character development that occurred in previous books. Here, Mma Ramotswe is still engaged to Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, who operates his car repair business in the same building as her detective agency. Her client in this story hires Mma Ramotswe to get information about an individual for specific reasons. And, while she does succeed in so doing, Mma Ramotswe learns that not all clients are willing to accept the evidence she uncovers. Smith's love of the land and people of Botswana is very evident and adds greatly to the pleasures the reader finds in this book.
