This is one of the more suspenseful books in the series. Even the secondary characters had great story lines.
Another delightful chapter in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. There was some remarkable writing, too. This was one I particularly liked: "The old woman said nothing for a moment, and Mma Ramotswe kept her arm about her shoulder. It was a strange feeling, she had always thought; feeling the breathing of another, a reminder of how we all share the same air, and of how fragile we are. At least there was enough air in the world for everybody to breathe; at least people did not fight with one another over that. And it would be difficult, would it not, for the rich people to take all the air away from the poor people, even if they could take so many other things? Black people, white people: same air." (p. 172)
A satisfying solution of Mme Ramotswe's many problems. She accidentally hits a man on a bike with her van, and she arranges for his bike to be fixed and for the man to be hired at Speedy Motors. Her goodwill is rewarded when he finds her stolen van. In the back of her mind is the fear that her first husband will disclose that they were never divorced, making her a bigamist. Will she pay him off, or will she tell her husband? I enjoy this series of a lady detective and her assistant.
In this sixth novel, the now married Mma Ramotswe finds a man under her bed, a pumpkin on her porch, and a dilemma that may ruin her domestic bliss that involves a confrontation with the cruel Note Mokoti. And when her tiny white van is stolen, and Precious is heart-broken, her dear friends come to her rescue out of love and respect. These books confirm my esteem of their gentle humor and joie de vivre.
