The eighth installment in the universally beloved, internationally bestselling series.

In the life of Mma Ramotswe – a woman duly proud of her fine traditional build – there is rarely a dull moment, and in her newest round of adventures, challenges and intrigues, the same certainly holds true. But one thing above all else is keeping her occupied – her estimable husband, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni. He has been hinting for some time now that he intends to do something special for their adopted daughter, Motholeli, and it seems that the time for this good deed has come. Of course, good deed or not, his plan is bound to hit some snags. And that’s when he will undoubtedly consider himself doubly – perhaps even triply – lucky to be married to the ever-resourceful, ever-understanding Precious Ramotswe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! A lot of tension to be resolved in this book, but everything manages to come to a close in the end. Still a great series, with interesting cases and more focus on other characters' personal problems as well (without overwhelming the agency's case files).
