Oooh! I love this series of books!!!

The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon - Alexander McCall-Smith
This has to be one of my favourite times of the year. Autumn with all its vibrant colours, not too cold and just to add to all things good at this time of the year - the latest book in the No 1 Ladies Detective Series has made its annual appearance!
I wait (each year) with anticipation to catch up with Mma Ramotswe, Mma Makutsi and of course, Rra J L B Maketoni and whether the apprentices are behaving - oh and let's not forget that we've had Mma Makutsi marry Phuti Radiphuti, so of course we want to find out if they're still happily married. Well - I'm not going to tell you anything because I'd spoil the surprise for you.
I always get a feeling of warmth and love settle inside me when I read one of this series' books. It makes me long to visit the dusty roads of Botswana, to meet and talk to people who are gentle and kind.
If you looking for a book that moves at a pace - then I'm afraid you're going to have to settle for "African Time", and on the way just sit back and soak up the philosophy and slowness of true Africa.
