Publisher's Summary

Alexander McCall Smith’s No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series has become a worldwide phenomenon thanks to the appeal of endearing protagonist Precious Ramotswe and the author’s charmingly quirky prose. In this 13th installment, Mma Ramotswe’s attention is focused on a pesky disciplinary problem at her adopted daughter’s school - while Grace Makutsi adjusts to wedded bliss and the famed Clovis Andersen arrives in Botswana looking for more than bush tea.

    "Excellent Story and Narration; Production Issue"

    Wonderful story and narration, as always. My only complaint is that whomever edited and mastered it removed too many initial "s" sounds, resulting in some odd-sounding words. As a long time listener of this series, I've never heard the problem occur before, and thus know the fault did not lay with the narrator.

    "The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection"

    I absolutely love this series of books. I have read them all but listening to Lisette Lecat read them just brings the characters to life for me. I highly recommend them for anyone.

    Story
    "Enjoyable"

    Another tale of the wonderful Mma Ramotswe and friends and family, all likeable yet with flaws. This story introduced some new characters and situations that provided more story lines for the secondary characters so that we got to know them better. The narration was wonderful. I did find the story line to be a little too packed with different events and this seemed confusing but as usual, they all worked out well.

    Story
    "Thank you for providing books of this nature!!!"

    This story was very stressful for me because of its intensely personal nature about the main characters that I have come to love so much. Because of this it was very difficult for me to listen to for very long at a time and as often as I usually would. I did not know if I liked it as much as the others and wondered if I would have to give it 4 stars instead of 5 but the beautiful way in which Alexander McCall Smith concluded this book made it all worth it and resolved all of my anxious feelings turning them into feelings of hope for human kind and gratitude. Thank you Alexander for helping your readers to see the good in the world and the good in the human heart!!!

    "Always A Winner"

    Alexander McCall Smith never loses his humor, comments on life and reader interest in this series. I was not suspecting the information revealed in the end but happy about the final words.

    "Another great No. 1 Ladies Detective book"

    I have read almost the entire series. I was hooked from the very first one. But I love listening to the series also. The writer is so delightful. Thank you Alexander McCall Smith! And Lisette is such a talented narrator/ performer. I'm going to finish the rest on Audible. I highly recommend this series for a pleasant, well-written and insightful book. And I love the glimpse I get of this small corner of Africa- in Botswana. I would love to visit there someday. But for now this series suffices.

    "If you love Mma Ramotswe as I do"

    This book offers more twists and turns than the usual Ladies #1 Detective Agency story. It has happy endings of course and was the perfect exciting feel-good book.
