1 Ladies Detective Agency #18)
à I like Smith s No 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, and this is the newest The endings are humane, universal, and not always obvious We would all like to know a person or perhaps do like Mma Ramotswe.
This book has many pages of description, repetition and interior thoughts, so the pace drags in places.
Still, Smith does a good job of setting up the problems and creating suspense about their resolutions.
First, the good news The House of Unexpected Sisters, the 18th book in The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, most of the old favorites reappear Charlie the slipshod apprentice Grace Makutsi, now the self styled Principal Investigating Officer whatever that means the sensitive Mr Polopetsi, high school chemistry teacher and volunteer at the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency kind and loyal husband, Mr J.
B Matekoni Silvia Potokwani, the redoubtable matron of the orphan farm and, of course, Precious Ramtoswe herself Even the wicked Violet Sepotho turns up cooking up mischief, as always Being reunited with the gang is always a pleasure Unfortunately, readers will find the mystery portion of the book pretty thin gruel Precious and Grace look into the dismissal of Charity Mompoloki from an office furniture company, while Precious is disturbed by a news Just such nice stories to read.
Always enjoy this entire series.
