The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

by Alexander McCall Smith

Reviewer Rating:
5

The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency is the first book in a series (that currently has 14 books in it). These books are gentle mystery reads that are engrossing, touching, and funny.

Heartwarming and reflective stories are inviting on a chilly winter’s evening.

Eight become cooking school students and learn even more about life.

Moving, touching, wonderfully written and inspiring - adjectives that describe all these books and more.

The holiday season always brings about warm, fuzzy feelings to me. Memories of holidays of long ago bounce in and out of my reverie. The winter night that my sister and I spied Santa and Mrs. Santa putting our wished for swing set together in the backyard. It was a revelation for both of us. We never told Mom and Dad and we were “surprised” on Christmas day. The end of innocence.
