Publisher's Summary

In the latest installment of this infinitely enjoyable and best-selling series, Precious Ramotswe is doing what she does best--helping people with their problems and enjoying the simple pleasures of life. Mma Ramotswe is busy investigating her latest case: a woman who is looking for her family. The problem is, the woman doesn't know her real name of whether any members of her family are now living. Meanwhile, Phuti Radiphuti has bought Mma Makutsi a glorious new bed. Unfortunately, it will inadvertently cause her several sleepless nights. And life is no less complicated at Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, where Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni--Mma Ramotswe's estimable husband--has fallen under the sway of a doctor who has promised a miracle cure for his daughter's medical condition, which Mma Ramotswe finds hard to believe. But Precious Ramotswe deals with these difficulties with her usual grace and good humor, and in the end discovers that the biggest miracles in life are often the small ones.

Totally Addictive

I have found all the titles in the No.1 Ladies detective agency series fabulous. Miracle at speedy motors did not disappoint. They are light mysteries with superb character development and breath-takingly discriptive settings. No sooner am I finished with the newest title and I find myself longing for the next.

The Best

I have loved all The no.1 Detective Agency books, but this one is the warmest, wittiest, funniest of them all. It made me smile and put a lump in my throat. I envy anyone who still has this lovely book ahead of them.
