A worthy sequel

This is the second book in the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency series and despite having a tough act to follow it does not disappoint. Just as good as the first and a great narrator who makes you feel as if you are there. If you haven't read book 1 you can still read this but I would recommend not missing out on book 1 as it's great too.

Another good listen...

The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency stories are very good (all that I have read so far- books 1-4), though at first it takes a little getting used to the names of the characters. Really enjoyable, yet i did not like the TV adaption!
