Friday Finds-April 16



Should Be Reading asks you to share what books you discovered this week that interest you!

I went to the website of Alexander McCall Smith to look up the next book I plan on reading in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series and found that another book in this series is going to be released next week!

Here is a summary of this book from his website:

Readers will agree that this touching and dramatic new installment in Alexander McCall Smith’s beloved and best-selling series is the finest yet. In this story, Precious Ramotswe deals with issues of mistaken identity and great fortune against the beautiful backdrop of Botswana’s remote and striking Okavango Delta.



Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi head to a safari camp to carry out a delicate mission on behalf of a former guest who has left one of the guides a large sum of money. But once they find their man, Precious begins to sense that something is not right. To make matters worse, shortly before their departure Mma Makutsi’s fianc√©, Phuti Radiphuti, suffers a debilitating accident, and when his aunt moves in to take care of him, she also pushes Mma Makutsi out of the picture. Could she be trying to break up the relationship? Finally, a local priest and his wife independently approach Mma Ramotswe with concerns of infidelity, creating a rather unusual and tricky situation. Nevertheless, Precious is confident that with a little patience, kindness and good sense things will work out for the best, something that will delight her many fans.

This is the 11th book in the series and since my book club has been reading at least one of these books a year I can't wait to tell them about this one.  The next one we will be reading together is The Good Husband of Zebra Drive, which is the 7th book in the series, so it will be a while before I get to the newest one.

Ooh. I've only read (actually listened to) the first one in this series, but I really enjoyed it. Are the others as good as the first?

I haven't read that far into the series, but those books are wonderful to read.

I keep thinking I should really read this series. I read the first one years ago and liked it. Good pick.

I think I started reading this series but I had been going through some tough times then and had to return the book to the library before I finished. I might start reading it again because so many people love the series and I want to give it a fair chance.

I love this series and I've been enjoying listening to them on audiobook. I'm currently listening to number 7, The Good Husband of Zebra Drive. It's a little slow to start but I probably should take a break between listening to them. I just finished up number 6. I'm glad that this series continues on.
