Alexander McCall Smith has given us another installment of his delightful No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series: The Joy and Light Bus Company. The title is as winsome as his remarkable, memorable characters. Enjoy their joy and light in this season of shorter days and longer nights.
- The Joy and Light Bus Company by Alexander McCall Smith. The newest addition to the ever-popular, internationally beloved series finds Precious Ramotswe and her friends up to their necks in mysterious trouble. Mma Ramotswe knows she is very lucky indeed. She has a loving family, good friends, and a thriving business doing what she enjoys most: helping people. But the latest mystery she is called upon to solve is distinctly trickier than it initially appears, and, of course, there’s plenty to handle in her personal life between Charlie and his new bride and Mma Makutsi and her talking shoes. In the end, Mma Ramotswe’s patience and common sense will win out, and, without a doubt, all will be the better for it. – Provided by publisher.
