Description

Even the arrival of her baby can't hold Mma Makutsi back from success in the workplace, and so no sooner than she becomes a full partner in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - in spite of Mma Ramotswe's belated claims that she is only 'an assistant full partner' - she also launches a new enterprise of her own: the Handsome Man's De Luxe Cafe. Grace Makutsi is a lady with a business plan, but who could predict temperamental chefs, drunken waiters and more? Luckily, help is at hand, from the only person in Gaborone more gently determined than Mma Makutsi . . . Mma Ramotswe, of course.show more

Review quote

With disquisitions on the failings of the male sex, the benefits of tea, and the novel concept of pilates with cake, this puts the world to rights in typically charming fashion * Good Book Guide * An ultra-smooth ride . . . almost more blissful than even McCall Smith's millions of regular devotees could pray for or hope * Scotsman * Hooray - the unstoppable fiction-machine that is Mr Alexander McCall Smith has returned to the mothership . . . Two new clients turn up [with] a problem that will take more than one pot of Mrs Ramotswe's redbush tea to solve, and she solves it with her trademark humanity, warmth and charm. Irresistible -- Kate Saunders * The Times *show more
