Product Details


“Enchanting. . . . As usual, Smith’s blend of gentle humor and insights into human nature is irresistible.” —Publishers Weekly

“The sixteenth installment of the internationally bestselling No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series again showcases the boundless compassion, humor, and occasional wiliness of the agency’s founder, the ‘traditionally built’ Mma Precious Ramotswe. . . . The title comes from Precious’s reflection that she, blessed by the love of her husband, the proprietor of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, walks in sunshine. Readers of this and the whole series will feel similarly blessed.” —Booklist (starred review)

Praise for Alexander McCall Smith and the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series:

“Calling Precious Ramotswe, owner and chief investigator of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency in Botswana, a detective doesn’t do her justice. ‘Problem solver extraordinaire’ would be much better. Mma Ramotswe . . . treats a whole range of human difficulties as they come her way, finding good solutions through her wisdom, kindness, and tact.” —Booklist
“McCall Smith’s plots offer wit, charm, and intrigue in equal doses.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Enchanting . . . An inspiration to us all . . . The sweet, chuckling voice of Precious Ramotswe falls gentle on the ear.” —The New York Times Book Review
“A vivid observer and an elegant writer.” —The Plain Dealer
“An oasis . . . Full of wit, nuance, and caring.” —Chicago Sun-Times
“The pleasure of these sweet books lies in the clarity and gravity with which the characters reason through everyday dilemmas.” —Entertainment Weekly
“Enthralling . . . Mma Ramotswe is someone readers can’t help but love.” —USA Today
