"Everyone likes a Wedding"

This is the latest book in the series of 'The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. I enjoy this series very much as they are very gentle and easy to read. The actual crimes are very ordinary and easy to solve. The other thing I find enjoyable is how each of the characters are portrayed to the reader in a way that you imagine that they are actually in the same room. Great description of Botswania's culture,tradition and scenary.In parts of the book there are some humourous and funny moments. In this book we read about the plans for Mma Makutsi's wedding,the concerns they have with the apprentice Charlie and Mma Ramotswe investigation on a southern cattle-post which made her refresh herself on Rule No.3 of The Principles of Private Detection.
Mma Ramotswe thought she saw her old white van but was not sure was she just imagining this.Then when Mme Makutsi had left the shop where she had purchased a pair of shoes for her wedding then insisted that she would wear them which was not a good idea as she then also saw the white van that Mme Ramotswe used to own she then hurried after the vehicle but could not attract the driver while chasing after it she then fell and damaged the shoes.

The author Alexander McCall Smith has a wonderfull way of writing and telling a story on paper that brings the characters to life..
