Tricky. I might have missed it, but there wasn’t time for relaxing with a cup of bush tea in the twentieth installment of Alexander McCall Smith’s #1 Ladies Detective series, a novel titled, To the Land of Long Lost Friends. The pace of life in Botswana remains placid, although Mma Ramotswe has to navigate some tricky family issues in this installment. Smith pulls long term fans back into a familiar setting and cast of characters, lays out a storyline slowly, and then wraps it all up in a quick jolt. It’s always comforting and relaxing spending time with Precious Ramotswe and her enduring goodness and kindness to others.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
