La signora Precious Ramotswe, fondatrice della Ladies' Detective Agency N. 1 del Botswana, deve affrontare alcune scomode vicende dai risvolti inquietanti: un appropriamento indebito di provviste alimentari; un ricatto; un medico disonesto che trascura la salute dei pazienti... E, come sempre, le indagini rappresentano per la detective anche un'occasione per approfondire i complicati meccanismi che muovono i comportamenti umani, soprattutto quelli delle persone a lei più vicine: il marito JLB Matekoni, con la testa sempre tra i motori; la direttrice dell'orfanotrofio, decisa e altruista; il nuovo collaboratore Polopetsi, pasticcione e volenteroso; l'immancabile occhialuta signorina Makutsi, sua assistente, che perde la testa per un paio di vistose scarpe azzurre. Tra loro, la signora Ramotswe si muove a proprio agio come una grossa dea dell'abbondanza, rassicurante e affidabile, intelligente e granitica...

I think I have to read one of these books every so often, just connect with a slower, gentler, kinder culture. The mysteries are not gory. The solution to problems are often simple. The world would be better if we'd all try a bit harder to just be nice.
Oh! How I just love this series! I am sure that literally anyone could find something to admire and savour about these books. They are so enjoyable. I hope they carry on for the foreseeable future. Sometimes, all you need is the comfort and this series has that in bucketloads. I remember seeing a co Leggi tutto
This is the sixth book in the "No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency" series that I have read. This book was so much fun for me, not just because it is a easy read and a fun story, but it has so many memories. I love that I know what the hot Botwana sun feels like , or what Kigale hill looks like, or that I Leggi tutto
3.5 stars A unique cozy mystery. No blood and gore, no murder, but lots of little cases for Mma. Rambotswe and her friends to get to the bottom of. I wasn't sure what it would be like at first, since I generally prefer novels to have a strong sense of plot, but the lovely characters won me over and t Leggi tutto
There are so many great reviews of these books that it is hard to not be repetitive. This book was one of my favorites because of Mma Makutsi and her "blue shoes." Like so much else in Smith's books, the shoes are a vehicle for philosophy. There is a contrast between Mma Ramotswe's contented life an Leggi tutto
***Fourth read*** I've now read this book four times and I'll probably read it again. If you're looking for a comfort read, this whole series fills the bill. This probably is my least favorite but still, many smiles. I just love these characters and the audiobook narrator. These books are like warm y Leggi tutto
It's been a long time since I last enjoyed the #1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. Blue Shoes and Happiness by Alexander McCall Smith is the 7th book in this entertaining series, featuring the wonderful Botswana detective Precious Ramotswe. Precocious operates her detective agency with her capable as Leggi tutto
The only other book in the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency series I've read is the first one and so perhaps I should have waited to read books number two to six before jumping straight to the seventh in the series. However, I couldn't resist buying whatever was available when I went to the book store
I really enjoyed this book in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. In this book, Mma Ramotswe looks into superstitious happenings at a local safari, blackmailing and government theft at the University, and a doctor who seems to be doing something wrong with his patients. That and a new pair of Leggi tutto
