Publisher Description

One bright morning, Precious Ramotswe - head of Botswana's No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - receives a visitor: a woman from Australia. This woman asks Precious to take on a case: to find the nursemaid who raised her during her childhood in Botswana. The woman wants to thank her for being such an important part of her life. Precious has a history of successfully solving cases, but this one proves difficult and throws up a number of surprises and challenges.

Back in her office, next door to the Speedy Motors Garage on Twokleng Road, Precious also has a team to manage: Mr Polopetsi, a part-time science teacher and new assistant at the agency; she mentors Charlie, a former apprentice and young man too handsome and charming for his own good - a man who has gotten himself in deep water; and then there is Precious's tumultuous but heart-warming friendship with her co-director, the fiery Grace Makutsi.

Precious and Grace is a story about being a detective, the complexities of human nature, as well as lessons about gratitude and obligation.

Almost an elf! ,

As always!

I have read every single book in this series. I never get bored with the characters or descriptions of life under bright blue skies and constant sun, awaiting the rains!

As soon as I start reading a new story I am transported to Botswana and the office of Mma Ramotswe, owner and chief detective and her employee, (whatever new title she has bestowed upon herself this time!) Mma Makutsi.

Gentle tales, gently told but with humour and truth which always leaves me feeling slightly sad when it ends as I always want more.
