The previous book was #14 and this one is hopefully a blip on the series’ radar. It did not match up to the quality of the other books and I am going to remedy the situation by borrowing the next book as soon as possible and move past this.
There is just one case in this book, one of an Indian family with an unknown amnesia patient.Mma Makutsi’s shoes are getting more intelligent but she is letting her position (both personal and professional) addle her mind.Mma Ramotswe(detective) and JLB Maketoni (garage owner extraordinaire )did not spend as much time together as I would have liked and their conversations were not as profound as before. Charlie the apprentice finally gets a kick to change some things in his life. Overall, apart from Mma Makutsi’s business venture skipping this book would not cause much of a gap in knowledge required to continue with the series.
I know this review does not really sing the praises of the book, but jumping through the old reviews would give you an entertaining picture to let you pick up a book in the series if you do chance upon it.
P.S: Do check out my review for The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart by Holly Ringland, I really enjoyed it!
