Title: In the Company of Cheerful Ladies
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
Series: No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency.
Genre: Mystery.
Setting: Botswana.
Reason for Reading: I wanted something cheerful.
Finished In: Hours.
Pages: 256
Copyright Date: 2006
Cover: Brightly colored pants hang on a clothesline in front of a bush house.
First line: "Mma Ramotswe was sitting alone in her favourite cafe, on the end of the shopping centre at the Gaborone end of Tlokweng Road."
Best part: This book made me smile. I also liked the introduction of a new character.
Worst part: I believe there was a plot inconsistency with a previous book, something Mma Ramotswe said she didn't know that she had in fact known in the first book.
Imaginary Theme Song: "All Things Just Keep Gettin' Better" - though an acoustic version would be more suitable.
Grade: C+.
Recommended for: Fans of the series. New readers should start with book 1.
