Praise for Precious and Grace and the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency Series

“In anxious times, we turn to comfort foods. But what about comfort books? Alexander McCall Smith serves up a perfect example in Precious and Grace, the latest in his heartwarming series featuring Precious Ramotswe, founder and owner of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Deeply satisfying and joyful, McCall Smith’s series about Precious Ramotswe, proprietor of Botswana’s No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, can be read as delicious entertainment. Or as wise lessons in humility, tolerance, and forgiveness. Or—and this is the course I recommend—as both.” —Adam Woog, The Seattle Times

“The books, like their author, have charm. You cannot overstate the power of this—it’s the missing ingredient in contemporary fiction.”—The Guardian

“Hooked. In thrall. That’s what the reader will be . . . Endearing, amusing, and speckled with truths.” —The Dallas Morning News

“Beguiling . . . McCall Smith’s prose is deceptively simple, with a gift for evoking the earth and sky of Africa.” —The Seattle Times

“A visit with a cast of characters who seem like old and cherished friends.” —St. Petersburg Times

“Utterly charming and deliciously entertaining, [with] characters who are as adept as they are appealing—people who become as familiar as neighbors and as welcome as the best of friends—and who, though steady in their beliefs and devotions, will still constantly surprise and amaze.”—Chicago Tribune
