Fans around the world adore the bestselling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, and Precious Ramotswe, Botswana's premier lady detective. In this charming series, Mma Ramotswe navigates her cases and her personal life with wisdom, and good humor-not to mention help from her loyal assistant, Grace Makutsi, and the occasional cup of tea. In this latest installment in the charming, bestselling series, Precious Ramotswe faces two confounding cases: the mysterious fate of some cows, and the ghost-like reappearance of her dear old white van. As Mma Ramotswe investigates the deaths of cows at a cattle post outside Gaborone, she finds herself also pursuing other mysteries closer to home. One of Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni's apprentices appears to have gotten a girl pregnant, and has run away to avoid marrying her. Meanwhile, Precious sees her beloved old van-sent to the junkyard long ago-trundling around the city again. Has the van been miraculously revived, or is she hallucinating? Further complicating matters are Violet Sephotho's newly launched campaign for a seat in Botswana's parliament, and Grace Makutsi's growing fears that she'll never be able to marry her fiancE Phuti Radiphuti if she can't find the perfect pair of wedding shoes. As ever, Precious will draw on her trademark grace and wisdom as she helps unravel all these tangled threads.

Professional reviews

"Life in Alexander McCall Smith's Botswana moves at a slow pace, and listeners will welcome the diversion as Mma Ramotswe makes her twelfth entry in the series. While it's helpful to know the characters--no worries, Mma, one can quickly catch on. Just let yourself get swept away to Botswana and the latest cases of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Lisette Lecat perfectly defines these characters. Her beautiful timing and the precision of her speech are perfect, and the way she rolls her "r's" and her "m's" impressive. Mma Ramotswe's investigations are always clever puzzles, and the wisdom and wit of the stories are continually diverting. WEDDING PARTY brings listeners the impending wedding of Mma's assistant, Grace Makutsi, as well as the travails of one of Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni's apprentices at Speedy Motors. R.F.W.
