In the Company of Cheerful Ladies

In the Company of Cheerful Ladies is the 6th book in Alexander McCall Smith's No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, and I've loved the lot.

from the back of the book:

In this latest, widely praised addition to the beloved No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, the charming and ever-resourceful Precious Ramotswe finds herself faced with new challenges-and intriguing surprises.

Precious is busier than usual at the detective agency when she discovers an intruder in her house on Zebra Drive-and perhaps even more baffling-a pumpkin on her porch. Her associate, Mma Makutsi, also has a full plate. She's taken up dance lessons, only to be partnered with a man with two left feet. And at Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, one of Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni's apprentices has run off with a wealthy older woman. But what finally rattles Mma Ramotswe’s normally unshakable composure is a visitor who forces her to confront a difficult secret from her past.

I've read #1, #2, #3, #4 and #5 and look forward to #7, which is out but which I do not yet own.
