Blue Shoes and Happiness
Publisher: Recorded Books
Date: April 2006
Duration: 8 hours 19 minutes
From internationally best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith comes the seventh novel in the phenomenally popular and endlessly charming series that began with The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Once again Botswana's only female detective, Mma Ramotswe, and her invaluable assistant, Mma Makutsi, puzzle out the mysteries of life while finding comfort in steaming mugs of bush tea.
Danger hits close to home when a cobra is found in Mma Ramotswe's office. Of less immediate danger, but greater general interest, are the faulty blood pressure measurements being recorded at the local clinic. But perhaps the biggest mystery is why Mma Makutsi's fiancé has missed their usual dinner date. Is he discontented? And if so, will cramming her feet into a pair of fashionable blue shoes help Mma Makutsi find happiness? Full of subtle wit and charming characters, Blue Shoes and Happiness is another unforgettable gem from McCall Smith.
"The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series is a literary confection of gossamer deliciousness … There is no end to the pleasure that may be extracted from these books."—New York Times Book Review
