Una nuova avventura si prepara per Preciuos Ramotswe e i suoi amici, sullo sfondo mozzafiato del Botswana. La giovane donna è ansiosa di fissare la data del matrimonio, ma non vuole opprimere il fidanzato, troppo impegnato nel fronteggiare la spaventosa richiesta che gli ha rivolto la direttrice del locale orfanotrofio. Precious, a sua volta, ha ricevuto l'incarico da una ricca signora, la cui fortuna è costituita da una catena di parrucchieri specializzati in treccine, di indagare sulla schiera dei suoi pretendenti. Sono interessati a lei come donna o ai suoi soldi? La questione non è semplicissima da chiarire, ma per fortuna l'investigatrice mette in azione il suo intuito eccezionale...

Another charming book from the series of #1 ladies detective agency. Better than its previous one, Mma Ramotswe and her band of piers continue enjoying each other, get in and out of stressful commitments, cherish their land and it's cattle, contemplate the virtues of men, women and proper behavior,
I cannot get enough from this series. It prompted us to actually go to Botswana. It is as fabulous as Smith describes it. This book is simple in structure, which at first may make one think it is a children's or young adult book. In essence, it can be enjoyed by all age groups. It is culturally rich, Leggi tutto
I am only half-way through this book now, but I am really enjoying it. I think Mma Ramotswe and Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni are the sweetest couple. I'd say it's more a literary fiction novel than a mystery, but I don't mind. I love the voices of all the characters, but especially the one belonging to Mma R Leggi tutto
***Third read*** I think I may just start stapling these books to my clothing so I always have one close by. With the state of the American govt being what it is and with civility and decency seemingly in such short supply, this series is medicine for my spirit and a reminder that goodness and kindne Leggi tutto
With each book that goes by, the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series seems to feel more confident, more assured and somehow more relaxed. By this stage, the author has an almost perfect grasp of his background and characters, and there is so little to add about the situation that he has plenty of
Mma Rwatse continues to wonder why her fiancée is so reluctant to tie the knot, while taking on a case for a rich woman who wants Precious to check out several beaus to see who is after her money and who is honest. Matekoni is tricked by the head of the orphanage into agreeing to skydive as a way of Leggi tutto
I really like this series. It’s a mystery that is short on mystery, but McCall Smith write so lovingly about these characters that it is difficult not to fall for them. It’s a light read, and sometimes one just needs a light read. I have to say though, I didn’t see that ending coming, but it’s a goo Leggi tutto
The secret to reading the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series is to realize that nothing much is going to happen and to accept that it doesn't matter. Nothing much happens in this particular book, The Full Cupboard of Life, that is until the plot picks up steam toward the end, but the characters a Leggi tutto
This series generally serves me well as brain candy interspersed among my more serious reads. Though they are generally rather similar, they are always entertaining. However, for some reason the author has decided in this book he needs to summarize all the preceeding storyline in greater detail. I fo Leggi tutto
I enjoyed it, as I've enjoyed the previous books in the series. As for the storyline in this one, all I'm going to say is - "Finally!!!"
