Mma Ramotswe, who became engaged to Mr J.L.B. Matekoni at the end of the first book, is still engaged. She wonders when a day for the wedding will be named, but she is anxious to avoid putting too much pressure on her fiance. For indeed he has other things on his mind - notably a frightening request made of him by Mma Potokwani, pushy matron of the Orphan Farm. Mma Ramotswe herself has weighty matters on her mind. She has been approached by a wealthy lady - whose fortune comes from successful hair-braiding salons - and has been asked to check up on several suitors. Are these men just interested in her money? This may be difficult to find out, but Mma Ramotswe is, of course, a very intuitive lady . . .


Alexander McCall Smith, Jg. 1948, wuchs in Zimbabwe und Schottland auf und lebt in Edinburgh mit seiner Frau, zwei Kindern und einer Katze. Er war bis vor kurzem Professor für Medizinrecht. Der erklärte Musikliebhaber spielt das Fagott, unter anderem im 'Really Terrible Orchestra', das er mit gegründet hat. Er veröffentlichte zahlreiche Fach- und Kinderbücher, bevor ihm mit der 'The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency' und der Krimi-Reihe mit Isabel Dalhousie Welterfolge gelangen. Die Romane dieser Reihe werden in 42 Ländern veröffentlicht.

The Full Cupboard of Life
I loved reading about Precious Ramotswe and her detective agency ! Alexander McCall Smith spins a wonderfully gentle tale spiced with an enormous amount of humour. I got the first novel of this series from a friend, after my first trip to botswana, and now I've read them all. An unusual setting, good story line, no unnecessary violence, wonderful believable characters and a bit of typical african lifestyle. I can not wait to read more about the " traditionally built " lady and the wonderful landscape.
