Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon Book Review

I realized that I missed a book in the series of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency so I went back and put it on reserve at the library.  The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon: No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency (14)
by Alexander McCall Smith was another great book in the series.  If you haven't tried this series, you should really check it out.  I think that it is fun and entertaining to see all of the problems that the ladies get involved in. This book was no different!!

Precious Ramotswe has her hands full with two puzzling cases. The first is a young man hoping to claim his inheritance at his uncle’s farm. The farmer’s lawyer fears that this self-professed nephew may be falsely impersonating the real heir, and asks Mma Ramotswe to look into his identity. The second involves the newly opened Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon, which has been shadowed by misfortune, from bad omens in the mail to swirling rumors that its services are dangerous. The salon’s proprietor fears that someone is trying to put her out of business and it is the detective's jobs to figure out who. Meanwhile, Mma Ramotswe has come to suspect that her intrepid associate Grace Makutsi is pregnant—though Mma Makutsi has mentioned nothing.  She tries to figure out how to bring up the subject without sounding totally rude and decides not to mention it.  Pick up this book to find out what happens in this installment from the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

I love the characters and the stories that Alexander McCall Smith comes up with because they are always new and different but sometimes the same.  Because of the great writing, you never feel like you are reading the same book.  This book is the 14th in the series and it is just as great as the first...maybe even better because you are pulling for your favorite characters to have good things happen.  I was sad to learn that I missed it and went on to read the book after this first but glad that I could go back and find out what I missed.  I hope that you check out this book and series for yourself!  I promise that you won't be disappointed!!
