This felt like the last novel of the series. If so, it ended as well as it began. If you are a fan and have not watched the BBC series based on some of the early episodes, you should search it out. It was filmed in Botswana and was beautifully scripted.

Precious Ramotswe is a Gift
I am the type of guy that typically hates zappy books. I also like my detectives hard boiled, tough, cynical, and violent. Precious Ramotswe is the total opposite and I love her. She is one of my favorite characters of all time and reading this series is very life affirming and Precious Ramotswe is one of the most worderful characters ever created.
The stories tend to be a bit simple and written almost as if they were meant for children but it serves the stories well. In many of the books there a few and sometimes no mysteries. The stories tend to be more about the life of the characters than any detective work. I gave this book 4 instead of 5 stars because I tend to prefer the stories in this series that do more dedecting.
Having said that, Precious Ramotswe is a godsend. The kindness and wisdom of the character always brings tears to this tough guy. This story is wonderful but I anyone interested in the series should start with the first to really enjoy them. The reader is awesome.
