No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency Series

The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon

No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency (14)

Publisher: Vintage Canada
The latest from the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, now in paperback.
     In the latest book in the beloved, bestselling series of mysteries set in Botswana, Mma Ramotswe is asked to help the proprietor of the Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon, who is having trouble with her business. The salon has suffered some unfortunate events, including mistakenly using face creams that burn the skin. Could someone be trying to put them out of business? Meanwhile on the home front, successful career woman Mma Makutsi is going to have a baby. But in Botswana--a land where family has always been held above all else but which is on the crossroads between old and new--this may be cause for as much controversy as celebration.


Praise for The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon and The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series:
"Delightful series, now up to number 14. . . . It's the tension between the traditional ways and the modern country that makes the novels more than merely charming in that small-village British way. And McCall Smith infuses the book with compassionate, funny philosophical musings on everything from the notion of animals having souls to whether liars can have true friends. . . . Every sentence conveys a beloved country where the air is pure and dry and carries the scent of cattle and dust and acacia." NOW (Toronto) NNNN
"Smart and sassy...with the power to amuse or shock or touch the heart, sometimes all at once." Los Angeles Times
"Enthralling...Mma Ramotswe is someone readers can't help but love." USA Today
