The Handsome Man's De Luxe Café

Help. Many characters in the fifteenth novel of Alexander McCall Smith’s No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series need help, and all of them receive it with care and love. Fans of this series will be delighted by the latest installment titled, The Handsome Man’s DeLuxe Café. The café in the title is a new project of Mma Makutsi and she needs help for the restaurant to succeed, and offers help to others who need what she can give them. Mr. JLB Matekoni doesn’t have enough work for both apprentices, so the one let go needs a job. The case that Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi are trying to solve involves a woman in a desperate situation. At a calm pace, Smith moves along the story, punctuated with tea when needed, and before a reader notices, another delightful time in Gabarone has been spent by all. I finish each of these novels feeling good about the world and all those in it who try to help others. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Handsome Man’s DeLuxe Café from
