Publisher's Summary

In the latest book in the widely beloved No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, Precious Ramotswe takes on a case for a childhood acquaintance, but her inquiries will require an even more delicate touch than usual.  

Mma Ramotswe reconnects with an old friend who has been having problems with her daughter. Though Precious feels compelled to lend a hand, she discovers that getting involved in family affairs is always a delicate proposition.   

Mr. J. L. B. Matekoni finds himself embroiled in familial drama as well when one of his clients asks for help evicting an unwanted houseguest who turns out to be the man's own brother. Elsewhere, Charlie and Fanwell are also involved in tricky matters of the heart, as Queenie-Queenie, Charlie's girlfriend, seems to have transferred her affections to Fanwell. It's up to Mma Makutsi to set things right, but she may be be too distracted by her nemesis Violet Sephotho, who has somehow been appointed to the board of a charity. What is Violet up to now? 

As all of these mysteries are unravelled, Mma Ramotswe and the entire No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency will be reminded of the value of tried-and-true wisdom - never judge a book by its cover.

Welcome back old friends

In times when we need somewhere to escape to where decency, gentleness and the better aspects of humanity hold sway, this series is a blessing. Keep them coming, Sandy!

Wrong information in Audible description of plot

Some of the info on Audio about the plot is incorrect (at the time of listening). That spoilt my experience because I was waiting for a couple of things to happen which never did. I even wondered if I'd somehow got an abridged version, but no.
Apart from that it was an uplifting and engaging read ike all the others in this lovely series and Adjoa Andoh's narration was wonderful.
