The characters are the story, so human, so personable as they cope with their everyday lives with enticing little mysteries thrown in for the reader to wonder about and follow through to their conclusion. The mysteries and problems the ladies of the detective agency are confronted with are solved with ingenuity and sometimes with just a realization that they are encountering human nature. The African setting adds to the charm of this very enjoyable book.

Alexander McCall Smith's fourth installment of his popular No. 1 Ladies Detective Agencies continues the story of Mma. Ramotswe, her fiance Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, her agency's assistant, Mma. Makutsi. For a while, Mma. Ramotswe's detective agency was the only agency in town until another agency owned by a man who had CID experience in Johannesburg and New York showed up and threathened their business. At the same time, a rich businessman showed up at the agency hoping to get Mma. Ramotswe's help to track down some people that he had wronged in the past. In addition, Mma. Makutsi, hoping to earn extra money set up the Kalahari Typing School for Men, which became a hit. I have enjoyed the other books in this series and this was equally delightful. The author focused more on the main characters' daily lives and their problems as opposed to actual cases. It's great that the readers get to learn more about the characters but at the same time, it would be better if the author had provided more cases for Mma. Ramotswe and her assistant to solve. Nevetheless, this is still a great book it's easy to read, the characters are likeable and it's basically a fun read.

I only discovered this author in recent months and am gradually making my way through the series (The No. 1 Ladies Detective Sgency). I love them! They are charming, witty and much truth to be had from the characters. When I have finished this series, I will go on to others by Mr. Smith.

I am never disappointed with the Mma Ramotswe or Mma Makutsi and their adventures. The writing is so decriptive, even though I've never been to Africa I feel as if I have just by reading the evocative way McCall Smith describes the landscape and the people in Botswana. A great read!
