We are excited to let you know about our next book for Let’s Talk About It at the Library ….
It’s Alexander McCall Smith’s “The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon”. Once again we will become entwined in the life of one of our favorite people – Precious Ramotswe – as she works to solve not one, but two puzzling cases. Book No. 14 of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency is sure to please. Here’s a short synopsis and we hope to see you with us on Thursday, February 8 2018 at 7pm at the Library. We have such a grand time and we’d love to have you join us.
Precious Ramotswe has her hands full with two puzzling cases. The first concerns a young man hoping to claim his inheritance at his uncle’s farm. The farmer’s lawyer believes that this sel-professed nephew may be falsely impersonating the real heir, and asks Mma Ramotswe to look into his identity. The second involves the just opened Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon, which has been shadowed by misfortune, from bad omens in the mail, to swirlilng rumors that its products are dangerous. Precious fears that someone is trying to put her out of business.
With genuine warmth, sympathy and wit, Alexander McCall Smith explores marriage, parenthood and the importance of the traditions that shape and guide our lives.
“A particularly endearing entry in the long-running series, which has lost none of its gentleness or its love for Botswana.” The Christian Science Monitor.
