Preciuos Ramotswe, fondatrice dell'unica agenzia investigativa in Botswana, è alle prese con il caso del presunto avvelenamento del fratello di un importante uomo politico e con il mistero di un bambino abbandonato che ha l'odore di un cucciolo di leone piuttosto che di un umano. A complicare il tutto intervengono i problemi finanziari e il suo fidanzato, il meccanico J.L.B. Matekoni, che è molto più complicato di quanto appare. Per fortuna, l'investigatrice ha una valida aiutante: la signorina Makutsi, gran cervello dietro una grosso paio di occhiali e una chioma indomabile. Proprio lei, che nessuno ha mai considerato avvenente, deve indagare su alcune ragazze e scovarne una adatta al titolo di Miss Bellezza e Integrità.

Reading these books is more like visiting with friends. If you are looking for action and plot, this will not really appeal to you, especially if you have read some of the others.

Third read - Is it possible that every time I read this series, I like it even more?! Between the audiobook performance and the wisdom and wit in his writing, this series gets better every time I read it. Long live AMS and his wonderful Botswana! Second read - I'm really enjoying revisiting t
I enjoyed being back with these lovely characters and seeing their lives and careers progress. Mma Ramotswe continues with her work although she is more of a life coach and counsellor with philosophical advice to her clients than a detective. The mysteries are easily wrapped up but the stories we he Leggi tutto
I am not an authority on detective stories. I've read a little Sherlock Holmes, but I've only seen Agatha Christie through the eyes of the BBC. But when I pick up books from this series and always see the New York Times Book Review quote on the front, "The Miss Marple of Botswana," I start to think
A delightfully gentle series of books by Alexander McCall Smith - set in and around Botswana's capital city of Gaborone and stories of the 'No.1 Ladies Detective Agency'.

Mma Makutsi rises to her own in this volume "Morality for Beautiful Girls (No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, Book 3)" . As Mma Ramtoswe feels the pinch economically and emotionally, what with money being tight in the agency and the illness of her fiance, Mr. J. L. B. Matekoni, she comes to rely on the u Leggi tutto
Like so many other readers, I really enjoy McCall Smith's stories of Mma Ramotswe, and her Botswana detective service. Mma Ramotswe is a remarkable character, and I love her simple and moral nature. Yet, of the three books I have read in this series, I found _Morality for Beautiful Girls_ to be the
