In this third audiobook for The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, the irrepressible Mma Ramotswe faces supreme problems at home and at work.

Gentle and easy going

A good book for calming down before bed. The narrator's accent is very good and the characters are easily distinguishable. I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

Morality for Beautiful Girls

I loved the narrator in this version of the books.
She brought life to the story by giving each character his or her own voice.
