This is a charming, easy read filled with gentle philosophy. Mr McCall Smith is such a fabulous storyteller and whilst he vividly describes Botswana he creates characters who are likeable and funny, who’s troubles and triumphs are completely relatable. Highly recommended feel good fiction

Set in Botswana, a very different setting to any detective book I have read before. It's great to have a lady detective, who solves the enquiries, and there are many people with problems needing to be solved. Also interesting that there is not always someone who ends up in jail for the crime. It could have been written as a book of short stories, but I like the way the author has written this book. The main characters are very well written too. All in all, I would recommend this to you. 5/5
