Life is good for Mma Ramotswe as she sets out with her usual resolve to solve people's problems, heal their misfortunes, and untangle the mysteries that make life interesting. And life is never dull on Tlokweng Road. A new and rather too brusque advice columnist is appearing in the local paper. Then, a cobra is found in the offices of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Recently, the Mokolodi Game Preserve manager feels an infectious fear spreading among his workers, and a local doctor may be falsifying blood pressure readings. To further complicate matters, Grace Makutsi may have scared off her own fiance. Mma Ramotswe, however, is always up to the challenge. And Blue Shoes and Happiness will not fail to entertain Alexander McCall Smith's oldest fans and newest converts with its great wit, charm, and great good will.

"Rejoice, all you listeners who love the gentle, sensitive voice of Lisette Lecat bringing to life the activities of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. In this seventh installment, as with the earlier novels, the pace is deliberately slow, and the attention is on human interactions, not drama. South African-born Lecat gives each of our detectives a distinct and likable persona. We treasure Mma Ramotswe's morality, common sense, and cleverness and warm to Mma Makutsi's ambition, enthusiasm, and hopes for love. While the cases may not be as interesting as some in the earlier novels, it is always a pleasure to let Lecat take us off to a kinder, gentler Africa. D.L.G. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
