LoveReading Says

A 2013 World Book Night selection.

If you are new to the series you really should start here to get the full background.  After that you can appreciate the others in any order you like but they do follow through as Precious Ramotswe’s love/office/family and friendships develop.  They are uplifting, warm and strangely compelling, a must-read for all.

Comparison: Colin Cotterill (The Coroner’s Lunch), Celestine Hitiura Vaite (Frangipani), Saumya Balsare (Cambridge Curry Club).
