Tea Time for the Traditionally Built by Alexander McCall Smith

Tea Time for the Traditionally Built (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, #10)Tea Time for the Traditionally Built by Alexander McCall Smith

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

These books have gotten steadily better with tighter plotting and more satisfying resolutions, but still with that narrative style that keeps you reading whether or not there is a plot there or not. In this installment, Mma Ramotswe must figure out who has sabotaged a local soccer team and Mma Makutsi learns that her rival, Violet Sephotho, has landed a job in the Double Comfort Furniture Shop, and has her sights set firmly on Mma Makutsi's fiancee. We do lose a beloved character in this one, though there's a hint of a promise we might see it again. If you've read the book, you'll laugh at me for calling this object a character, but I'm a pilot's daughter. Vehicles have lives and histories to me.

I've followed this series loyally ever since I picked up the first book off the Costco book table. I was starving for something to read, but short on money. Unfortunately, I got addicted and have spent many times that amount of money since then. I read this on Kindle for PC while I read another McCall Smith book in hardcopy from the library. It's nice to feel there are more good books to read than there is time in the day, though.

This series begins with: The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency: A No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency Novel (1)
