The #1 Ladies Detective Agency

by Alexander McCall Smith; narrated by Lisette Lecat

Wonderful audiobook! I am starting my New's Resolution early - to read at least one book in as many popular series as possible. I thoroughly enjoyed this book on audio.

Set in Africa, Mma Ramotswe (pronounced ma ra-moat-sway) is a the only female detective in Bostwana. The first in the series, it tells the story of Mma Ramotswe and how she started the #1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Her cases range from finding out if a husband is cheating to finding the witch doctor who may be responsible for the disappearance (and perhaps murder) of an innocent boy. The story is charming, with small cases popping up intermittently enough to leave you satisfied, but with larger, more dangerous cases boiling in the background. Mma Ramotswe's character is very likable from her hefty frame and her good sense of humor to her knack for solving the most complex cases.

Great short read, if you are planning on registering for the 50 Book Challenge! Contact the reference desk for more details at 330-425-4268 ext 2.
