Alexander Mccall Smith - Tears of the Giraffe

Paperback: 240 pages
Publisher: Anchor (September 3, 2002)
My rating: 4

First sentence:
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.

Book Blurb:
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.
