I love the Scottish books and these books. And Lisette Lecat is one of my favorite narrators.
She can do any accent in the world. A delight. This one is not quite as good as the others. I love listening to Lisette Lecat.
She has a wonderful voice and she is so good at bringing the characters in this series to life. I think what I missed in this book is the time out then the author tells us about Africa and how beautiful it is.
There really wasn't that moment in this book and I missed it. The story was ok and the characters wonderful and that means alot. I am a fan of Alexander McCall Smith and love his meandering philosophizing. Lisette Lecat bring the book to life with her narration of the book.
In this story Clovis Anderson comes to town and helps Precious solve her crime. Smith's stories always impart some pearls of wisdom and or ethics in an interesting story. When reading his books I always feel like I have just had afternoon tea with an old friend. For those of you who are fans enjoy the book. This series always makes me want to take a trip to Botswana.
I understand this month they are releasing another new book called The Great Cake Mystery. It takes place when Precious is a child. Can not wait for it to come out. In this 13th installment of the No.
One of the apprentices of the car repair takes on extra work from a friend for money, and it turns out he is working on stolen cars. Both he and his friend are arrested, and the apprentice turns out to have a very bad lawyer. MMa Ramotswe must help him find his way out of this problem. Then the matron of the orphanage is dismissed from service because the board of directors wants to build a new kitchen instead of each little house having its own kitchen and housemother, and she opposes this change.
Mma Ramotswe investigates to find out what really is going on with the board, shady business to be sure and to help the matron get her job back. And no one could read them better than Lisette Legat. Her pace may be too slow for some, it normally would be for me , but the pace fits the books and the slower pace of Botswana.
These are books that make you feel good, unusual for mysteries. I have become a huge fan of this series. My first introduction to the No.
I love the way she pronounces Mma Ramotswe's name and every other Botswana name, for that matter. I have read some books in the series, but know that I much more enjoy them when listening. There is nothing surprising or monumental in any of the books, and this one is no exception. But the wisdom, grace, and humor I find in the traditional Botswana wisdom woven for me in these stories is the equivalent of putting on my favorite comfortable sweatshirt and curling up in front of the fire with a nice cup of tea.
Except I can be drawn into this world while still doing tasks that need doing.

All of it. Which scene was your favorite? All of them. If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection. Great read. Simple approach to complicated situations. I loved the fact that Precious finally got to meet her longtime mentor.
He tried to explain that he was not the expert she had admired for all these years. Precious, in her simple approach to her life in Botswana, maintained her faith in his expertise and enlisted his advise in a case. When they foiled the plans of wealthy man who conspired to change the whole concept of the Orphan Farm by building a 'communal" Dining room Have listened to many--this one was equally well done. Did you have an extreme reaction to this book?
Did it make you laugh or cry? My main reaction was pure enjoyment with every chapter. The main reason these books are so enjoyable, in addition to the great story lines, is that they are read with "English" accent. Just reading the words in a "regular' book, you miss all the nuances built into the story line.
The pure simplicity of the lifestyle so well depicted by the author, is brought put by the readers talent. Your audiobook is waiting…. By: Alexander McCall Smith. Narrated by: Lisette Lecat.
