Publisher's Summary

In this delightful 15th installment, Mma Ramotswe has her hands full both at home and in the office. To add to her current challenges, her devoted partner, Grace Makutsi, has decided to branch out on her own and open The Handsome Man's Deluxe Cafe. But even “Miss 97 Per Cent” can't quite meet all the demands of running a business - not to mention those that a lightning strike makes on her building. Eventually, she'll have to accept all the help she can get - even if it comes from a completely unexpected source.

What Happened to Lisette Lecat?

Overall this is another enjoyable entry in the series. It's like a familiar and beloved pair of slippers that give you a sense of well being. In this book, the character of Charlie is explored a bit more than in previous books.

The narrator seems to have lost her feeling of well being though. She used to have voices for Mma. Ramotswe, Grace Makutsi, Mr. J.L.B. Matekone, and Mma Potokwane. These are no longer present, and as the book goes along she uses the familiar voices less and less and often mixes them up, using Mma Ramotswe's voice for Grace. I found this very distracting, and disappointing. Hopefully she'll regain her technique for the next book, if she narrates it.
