On a long trip recently, I brought a copy of Blue Shoes and Happiness . This is part of the popular Number 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. The titles offer a view of everyday life in Botswana as the ladies seek to earn an honest living as detectives. In this title, Mma Ramotswe is married now and Mma Makutsi is engaged. A customer named Poppy comes to them. Her r job is in danger as someone is black mailing her boss and the boss thinks it’s Poppy. Although it is set in a very exotic locale, it reminds me of the old Andy Griffith TV show in that things move slowly and sedately. I’m afraid that this series is a bit too tame for me. But for those who like cozy mysteries, this will do nicely.
