Life in Alexander McCall Smith's Botswana moves at a slow pace, and listeners will welcome the diversion as Mma Ramotswe makes her twelfth entry in the series. While it's helpful to know the characters—no worries, Mma, one can quickly catch on. Just let yourself get swept away to Botswana and the latest cases of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Lisette Lecat perfectly defines these characters. Her beautiful timing and the precision of her speech are perfect, and the way she rolls her “r’s” and her “m's” impressive. Mma Ramotswe's investigations are always clever puzzles, and the wisdom and wit of the stories are continually diverting. WEDDING PARTY brings listeners the impending wedding of Mma's assistant, Grace Makutsi, as well as the travails of one of Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni's apprentices at Speedy Motors.
