Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi are called to a safari lodge in Botswana's Okavango Delta to carry out a delicate mission on behalf of a former guest. The Okavango makes Precious appreciate once again the beauty of her homeland: it is a paradise of teeming wildlife, majestic grasslands and sparkling water. However, it is also home to rival safari operators, fearsome crocodiles and disgruntled hippopotamuses. What's more, Mma Makutsi still does not have a date for her wedding to Phuti Radiphuti and is feeling rather tetchy herself. But Precious knows that with a little patience, just as the wide river will gently make its way round any obstacle, so will everything work out for the best in the end ...

Review quote

The one with the difficult aunt

The no.1 lady detectives of Botswana travel to a safari lodge in the Okavango Delta to carry out a delicate mission on behalf of a former guest. It is a beautiful place full of dangerous, untamed creatures - some of them human. As Mma Ramotswe investigates, it becomes clear that there is another mystery right under her nose that needs solving: Mma Makutsi is troubled by her fiancé Phuti Radiphuti's reluctance to set a date for their wedding. In such matters at least, Mma Ramotswe is on familiar terrain.

More activity in the story than most in the series. The mystery aspect of the stories is becoming less and a simple, comfortable storyline more more
