Publisher's Summary

Listeners will agree that this touching and dramatic new installment in Alexander McCall Smith’s beloved and best-selling series is the finest yet. In this story, Precious Ramotswe deals with issues of mistaken identity and great fortune against the beautiful backdrop of Botswana’s remote and striking Okavango Delta.

Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi head to a safari camp to carry out a delicate mission on behalf of a former guest who has left one of the guides a large sum of money. But once they find their man, Precious begins to sense that something is not right. To make matters worse, shortly before their departure, Mma Makutsi’s fiancé, Phuti Radiphuti, suffers a debilitating accident, and when his aunt moves in to take care of him, she also pushes Mma Makutsi out of the picture. Could she be trying to break up the relationship?

Finally, a local priest and his wife independently approach Mma Ramotswe with concerns of infidelity, creating a rather unusual and tricky situation. Nevertheless, Precious is confident that with a little patience, kindness and good sense things will work out for the best - something that will delight her many fans.

    "Another great in the series!"
    If you could sum up The Double Comfort Safari Club in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, enlighteing, wise


    What other book might you compare The Double Comfort Safari Club to and why?

    All in his series of Ma Ramotsway.


    What does Lisette Lecat bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She sounds exactly like I picture the characters. Lovely cadence.L


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Never cried.
    Felt sorry sometimes but definitely laughed.


    Any additional comments?

    Just when I think there's no more to be said or done in the lives of these characters, here comes another engrossing and expanding book! Wouldn't miss a one of them, and haven't! I'm ready for more!

    "Love The Light Series"
    Where does The Double Comfort Safari Club rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I can't get enough of The No.1 Ladies' Detective series, always entertaining and different. I recommend the series often to readers I know would love this series. It refreshing to get away from the overly descriptive books.

    "No Detective"

    I guess A.M. Smith has run out of detective ideas to put into his books. This one is just a series of long slow exchanges between the female characters. They never actually do much of anything in the entire book. Very disappointing as I enjoyed the earlier books in this series very much.

    "I Love Mma. Ramotswy"

    I love this series of books. I love it I love it I love it. Nothing much ever happens, but you can't help from being drawn into this lovely world. These books are like the literary version of comfort food.

    "Worst book ever"

    Reached the end of the book and was still waiting for some mystery to develop. Needless to say, it never did.
