The Kalahari Typing School for Men

The Kalahari Typing School for Men is book 4 in The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith. I am continuing to enjoy this series, even though I've run across a couple of what look to me to be inconsistencies, including how long Mma Ramotswe's baby lived and whether or not her fiancé had been married before. I need to go back and check those things out sometime.... I like the writing style -the voice of the narrator.

from the back of the book:
The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
For All Confidential Matters and Inquiries
Satisfaction Guaranteed for All Parties
Under Personal Management

The phenomenal success of The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency continues with the bestselling Kalahari Typing School for Men, the fourth book in the series.

Mma Precious Ramotswe is content. Her business is well established with many satisfied customers, and in her mid-thirties ("the finest age to be") she has a house, two adopted children, a fine fiancĂ©. But, as always, there are troubles. Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni has not set the date for their marriage. Her able assistant, Mma Makutsi, wants a husband. And worse, a rival detective agency has opened in town—an agency that does not have the gentle approach to business that Mma Ramotswe's does. But, of course, Precious will manage these things, as she always does, with her uncanny insight and her good heart.
