Morality For Beautiful Girls

3rd in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith, Morality For Beautiful Girls follows several interesting cases and further develops these characters. The writing is such that I can picture the characters and the African landscape, the houses and offices. I can imagine this series as a PBS Mystery program.

from the back of the book:

In Morality for Beautiful Girls, Precious Ramotswe, founder and owner of the only detective agency for the "concerns of both ladies and others," investigates the alleged poisoning of the brother of an important “Government Man,” and the moral character of the four finalists of the Miss Beauty and Integrity Contest, the winner of which will almost certainly be a contestant for the title of Miss Botswana. Meanwhile the agency is having money problems, and when unexpected difficulties arise at the Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, she discovers that her fiance, the reliable Mr J.L.B. Matekoni, is more complicated then he seems.
