Reviews

Hooray - the unstoppable fiction-machine that is Mr Alexander McCall Smith has returned to the mothership . . . Two new clients turn up [with] a problem that will take more than one pot of Mrs Ramotswe's redbush tea to solve, and she solves it with her trademark humanity, warmth and charm. Irresistible
Kate Saunders, The Times
An ultra-smooth ride . . . almost more blissful than even McCall Smith's millions of regular devotees could pray for or hope
Scotsman
With disquisitions on the failings of the male sex, the benefits of tea, and the novel concept of pilates with cake, this puts the world to rights in typically charming fashion
