Alexander McCall Smith will be in New Zealand to promote his new books in the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency series, Miracle at Speedy Motors and
Tea Time for the Traditionally Built.
The Miracle at Speedy Motors is the ninth book in the popular series. Mma Ramotswe, the owner of the No. 1 Detective’s Agency, feels that her tiny white van, which has carried her about her business with such
reliability should be replaced by a more modern vehicle, but her husband takes a different view. Alongside day-to-day matters – such as Mma Makutis’ dowry negotiations – there are more difficult problems for Mma Ramotswe’s to solve. A client, who was adopted, asks her to trace her biological family. But will Mma Ramotswe’s searches bring happiness or something rather different, something rather frightening?
Tea Time for the Traditionally Built is the tenth book in the series. Mma Ramotswe is widely known for many things; for example, everybody knows about her kindness and her taste for redbush tea and cake – she is after all traditionally built. Mma Makusti is experiencing a crisis in her engagement to Phuti Radiphuti. A scheming woman, Violet Sophotho, has obtained a job at Phuti’s store, clearly intending to prise him away from Mma Makutsi. And Charlie has to deal with a young lady with baby who she claims is his
responsibility. Will this unsettle Mma Ramotswe?
