The Handsome Man's De Luxe Cafe Synopsis

Even the arrival of her baby can't hold Mma Makutsi back from success in the workplace, and so no sooner than she becomes a full partner in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - in spite of Mma Ramotswe's belated claims that she is only 'an assistant full partner' - she also launches a new enterprise of her own: the Handsome Man's De Luxe Cafe. Grace Makutsi is a lady with a business plan,but who could predict temperamental chefs, drunken waiters and more? Luckily, help is at hand, from the only person in Gaborone more gently determined than Mma Makutsi ...Mma Ramotswe, of course.

The Good Book Guide Review

Business development is the foremost concern for Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi, and as the two make plans for the agency’s future and employ a new member of staff, Mma Makutsi branches out into new territory with a business venture of her own. But problems arise, solutions are hard to come by, and the ladies discover that ‘there are some occasions on which you have to find out how to find out’ what you need to know. With disquisitions on the failings of the male sex, the benefits of tea, and the novel concept of Pilates with cake, this puts the world to rights in typically charming fashion.

The Handsome Man's De Luxe Cafe Press Reviews

'Hooray - the unstoppable fiction-machine that is Mr Alexander McCall Smith has returned to the mothership ... Two new clients turn up [with] a problem that will take more than one pot of Mrs Ramotswe's redbush tea to solve, and she solves it with her trademark humanity, warmth and charm. Irresistible' -- Kate Saunders The Times

 

'An ultra-smooth ride ... almost more blissful than even McCall Smith's millions of regular devotees could pray for or hope' Scotsman
