This series is best enjoyed with a really good narrator and Lisette Lecat is that. Her reading brings the characters to life. Since there are many unfamiliar places and names in Botswana hearing them pronounced correctly contributes to the enjoyment of these books. The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series is not "serious literature" but it is great fun and very entertaining. The characters are engaging and the insight into the day to day lives of "ordinary" people in Botswana is interesting. This book is the latest in the series and does not disappoint. I would recommend starting to listen to the series from the beginning since there are many references to events and people from the earlier books, so knowing some of the background of the characters does add to the enjoyment. It is like visiting old friends from far away.

Where does The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Whenever there is a new book in the series from the #1 Ladies' Detective Agency I jump on buying it. This is such a charming series with characters that I have grown to love and almost think of as real. I envision them living their lives in Jabarony in Botswana and each of these books is a snapshot of what they have been doing. I love this series.
What did you like best about this story?
The characters. Hands down. They are real and lovable and fallible and comforting. I like knowing they are there. Nothing really ever happens in these stories, but I still can't put them down. They are a delicious slice of life. I also LOVE the narrator. She is one of the best audible has.
Have you listened to any of Lisette Lecat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Amazing as always. She is wonderful and consistent and I love listening to her melodious voice.
Any additional comments?
I almost shouted for joy when the foreigner walked into Ma. Ramotswy's office. I think I was just as excited as they were to meet him.
