We all enjoyed this charming book. It held our interest right from the start when Mma Ramotswe solved the mystery of the bogus “Daddy”. The details of Mma Ramotswe’s early life and that of her father’s was cleverly woven into the story. We liked the descriptions of Botswana, the atmosphere of the land itself, seemed quite magical – so different from our own. We look forward to reading the next book in the series.
