by Alexander McCall Smith | Read by Lisette Lecat

It has been decided that Mma Ramotswe, owner of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, shall take a holiday--even though she doesn't actually wish to take one. Lisette Lecat, who has narrated this series from its beginning, is once again perfect for this story set in Botswana. With a relaxed pace, she sets the charming atmosphere, seeming to savor each of McCall Smith's sentences. As Mma Ramotswe struggles to refrain from meddling in the agency while her colleague Mma Makutsi is in charge, Lecat seems to delight in performing the voices and accents of each character, making each one distinct and memorable. This story is meant for fans of the long-running beloved series--newcomers are advised to enjoy each installment from the beginning. M.M.G.
