Search Amazon.com for the no 1 ladies detective agency seriesAlexander McCall Smith is a Scotsman who writes mysteries that take place in Scotland. They’re not gory, but they are good. He also writes a wonderful series of books that are set in Botswana (Africa) at the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency with a delightful group of characters. These are usually gentle mysteries which look for an unfaithful spouse or right a wrong, although occasionally there is danger for our leading ladies.
These books are so beloved that they have already been made into a PBS series. If you have read them you already know how enjoyable they are – like a sunrise before a hot, dusty African day. If you haven’t I recommend that you check out the first one which is called The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency and go on from there. They may not be your “cup of tea” After all, not everyone likes “red bush tea”. (inside joke) The current title, which will be completed all too soon, is The Double Comfort Safari Club.
