The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - Alexander McCall Smith // This is the first in the series. Incredibly enjoyable mystery stories set in Botswana. Precious Ramotswe is a woman of "generous proportions" who decides to set up her own detective agency. Hilarity (and suspense) ensues.
First in an on-going series the Library Lover's Mysteries, this gives a first look at the small town and the new librarian's job of adapting from rare book librarianship to public librarianship and coping with odd happenings in the town. Classify it as "cozy."
