The Full Cupboard of Life

The Full Cupboard of Life by Alexander McCall Smith

This is the fifth book in the No. 1 Ladies' detective Agency series. I love this series and especially Mma Precious Ramotswe whose common sense approach to life appeals to me. In this book Mma Ramotswe is a little concerned that she will always be engaged and never married to Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni. She doesn't want to pressure him but...

Mr. Matekoni has other pressing concerns as he has somehow consented to do a skydive for Mma Potokwane, matron of the orphan farm. The skydive will be a fund-raiser. Somehow Mr. Matekoni is always pulled into the schemes of Mma Potokwane.

Mma Ramotswe has been approached by a very wealthy lady to investigate her suitors and find out if they are truly interested in her or just her money.

All the problems are resolved with the common sense and sensibility that is MmMa Ramotswe's stock in trade. This is an easy cozy mystery read. The reader is always left with a smile on their face. Love love the series

First Line: "Precious Ramotswe was sitting at her desk at the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency in Gaborone."
