Book 37 for 2010

Blue Shoes and Happiness by Alexander McCall Smith. 227 pages

Another all-too-brief visit to the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency. This time Mma Ramotswe has to deal with odd happenings at a wildlife reserve, a blackmailer and a worried nurse among other things. As ever, the mysteries are fairly slight ; it's the characters who make these books so enjoyable.  Them, and the backdrop of Botswanna itself, which McCall Smith paints so beautifully and with evident affection.
