How nice it was to be back in Botswana with Mma Ramotswe. She is such a kind, gentle, generous person. If a friend asks for a favor, she feels the need to grant it. But this is too much. Mma Potokwane wants her to run for a seat on the City Council, and she absolutely does not want to run for a seat on the City Council. She likes her life just as it is. Meanwhile, the No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency has a new case, a hit and run, and Mma Ramotswe lets young Charlie, her sometimes detective, do a bit of investigating. I love this series. It never gets stale, boring. The characters grow and change, just a bit. Just enough to keep things interesting. The plot moves at a gentle pace. There is always time for tea, always time to think about things, always time to see the beauty and humor in life. This is the 19th book in the series, so if you want to start with this one, there is a lot of missing back story. But it is not absolutely essential and the book can stand alone.
