Needs a minor adjustment,
This review is from: The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency) (Hardcover)
This is another well-written novel within the series and, as always, there are episodes of charm, colour and nostalgic brilliance for all to enjoy. The developments in the lives of Mme Ramotswe and her friends continue to bring a big grin to my face and 2 cases investigated were interesting and fun. However, they felt very rushed towards the end, as if McCall Smith had been asked to heavily edit the book in order to reduce its size and so there was a certain hollowness to the close of the book which was rather upsetting. If it needed editing, why not just a minor adjustment?

Yes, I felt very much the same. Both cases were "solved" but this was not played out. Instead we got the information necessary to work things out without the enjoyment of seeing this delivered to the characters involved. A poor ending which left me feeling cheated.
