    Alexander McCall Smith’s internationally best-selling and award-winning series starring Botswana’s leading lady detective continues with this 11th charming tale. Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi travel to the Okavango Delta to visit a safari lodge beset by unexplained events. There they are awestruck by the breathtaking scenery, but also troubled by the region’s many difficulties—not the least of which is the occasional grumpy hippopotamus.

    bebe says: "I love this series"
    "Another lovely book by Dr. Smith"
    Overall

    Slow down and enjoy the simple and loving relationships, emotions, and dialogue of another Mma Ramotswe book. The narration is excellent, and the descriptions are worthy of more than one listen...I found myself rewinding and re-enjoying certain scenes. As with all books in a series, I feel that this book is best enjoyed in order, but the references should keep you current if you don't already know the characters, whom I feel that I know.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    Curatina says: "Great listening!"
    "Great characters, well-written and surprising book"
    Overall

    This was a very satisfying listen, with unexpected turns and thorough development of interesting characters. The overseas locales were described well enough for me to picture them, and the excellent story line covers several decades and family generations. I've just bought the sequel.
