They encounter a cobra in the office, complaints of faulty blood-pressure readings at the medical clinic, a superstitious group of farm workers, and it looks like Aunty Emang, advice columnist in the local newspaper, may not be what she seems.
And there's trouble brewing in Mma Makutsi's personal life: money may be able to buy her that fashionable pair of blue shoes, but it won't buy her the happiness that Mma Ramotswe promises can be found in the simpler things in life - in plenty of bush tea and relaxing Botswana skies.

"A paean to a much-loved Africa...it's hard to find fault with such good-natured and pleasurable optimism." (The Guardian)
It is very good natured and pleasurable. Definitely easy listening . However i did begin to get annoyed with repetition, as we are aware that Obed has died and that fat cattle are an important part of life in Botswana.
Mma Makutse conceding defeat with her shoes
i did not have an emotional response to this book but i did enjoy it.
