Mr J.L.B. Matekoni, proprietor of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, found it difficult to believe that Mma Ramotswe, the accomplished founder of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, had agreed to marry him.
I read this book because I like the first one in the series. This author is great at making you like his characters. Mma. Ramotse is now engaged and solving mystery as ever.
I like the picture of Botswana it shows.
My favorite moments? It's probably the discussion of Freud and how he was worried that boys love their mothers.
Alexander McCall Smith (The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency) offers the second and third installments of his dignified, humorous Botswanan series. In Tears of the Giraffe, PI Precious Ramotswe tracks a missing American man whose widowed mother appeals to Ramotswe; meanwhile, the imperturbable detective is endangered at home by her fiance's resentful maid.
