5.0 out of 5 stars THE BOTSWANA WAY, 29 July 2011
This review is from: The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency) (Hardcover)
Fortified by redbush tea, Botswana's No.1 lady detective Mma Ramotswe investigates more cases. (Rather fewer this time actually). Expect no speed from one so traditionally built. She gets there eventually, but at her own pace.

"Associate Detective" Mma Makutsi's wedding plans tend to dominate. There is, though, the matter of mutilated cattle - not to mention Speedy Motors apprentice Charlie's refusal to accept responsibility for twins he allegedly sired. Almost surreal are sightings of Mma Ramotswe's beloved, long gone, white van. Surely vehicles cannot reappear as ghosts?

Unashamedly this good-humoured series takes time to linger and reflect, Mma Ramotswe so often lost in thought. All those around are but specks in the overall scheme of things - hopefully destined to meet again cherished late others in a heaven closely resembling the Botswana she so greatly loves....

Some may regret so little seems to happen, others regarding this as the Botswana way, part of the series' charm. Completely won over, I relish every life-affirming moment - the feel-good wedding here a perfect climax.
