They encounter a cobra in the office, complaints of faulty blood-pressure readings at the medical clinic, a superstitious group of farm workers, and it looks like Aunty Emang, advice columnist in the local newspaper, may not be what she seems.
And there's trouble brewing in Mma Makutsi's personal life: money may be able to buy her that fashionable pair of blue shoes, but it won't buy her the happiness that Mma Ramotswe promises can be found in the simpler things in life - in plenty of bush tea and relaxing Botswana skies.
As ever a total delight. the reading was great, however the only reason that I docked a star was that some of the more 'traditional' voices have more conviction.
