Booklist Reviews 2011 March #2

A challenging case awaits lady detective Precious Ramotswe in this twelfth entry in McCall Smith's always-delightful, best-selling series set in contemporary Botswana. This time around, Mma Ramotswe is retained by Mr. Botsalo Moeti, a well-to-do farmer whose cattle are being killed. (There's something decidedly unlikable about the man—he verbally and, at times, physically abuses his workers—and Mma Ramotswe wonders if a vengeful hired hand has been committing the heinous acts.) Meanwhile, Mma Ramotswe's genial garage-mechanic husband, Mr. J. L. B. Matekoni, is also having trouble with his staff. Charlie, it seems, has fathered twins but is shirking his responsibilities to both mother and children. In contrast, it's nothing but domestic bliss for Associate Detective Grace Makutsi and her fiancé, Phuti Radiphuti. The two will soon be married, and Mma Makutsi, who harbors an unabashed passion for shoes, looks forward to finding the perfect footwear for the event. McCall Smith has great fondness for Botswana and paints a loving portrait of this peaceful, prosperous, and progressive country. This wise and graceful installment will not disappoint series devotees. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.

Precious Ramotswe dreams that she is driving her dear, departed white van—and then she learns that the van is out there, just waiting for her to find it. Meanwhile, an apprentice has gotten a girl pregnant, cattle are being poisoned, and Violet Sephotho is running for Parliament. A no-brainer for mystery fans; with a 12-city tour.
