Tea Time For The Traditionally Built by Alexander McCall Smith



Description from book;
The latest installment in this universally beloved and best-selling series finds Precious Ramotswe in personal need of her own formidable detection talents...
Mma Ramotswe's ever-ready tiny white van has recently developed a rather disturbing noise. Of course, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni -- her estimable husband and one of Botswana's most talented mechanics -- is the man to turn to for help. But Precious suspects he might simply send the tiny white van to the junkyard and replace it with something more modern. Can she find a way to save her old friend?
In the meantime, Mma Makusi discovers that her old rival Violet Sephotho, who could not have gotten more than 50 percent on her typing final at Botswana Secretarial College, has set her sights on none other than Mma Makutsi's fiance, Phuti Radiphuti. Can Mma Romotswe's intuition save the day? Finally, the proprietor of a local football team has enlisted the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency to help explain its dreadful losing streak. The owner of the team is convinced he has a traitor in his midst. But how is Mma Romotswe, who has never seen a football match in her life, going to discern who is throwing the game? Help, it turns out, may come from an unexpected quarter.
There are few mysteries that can't be solved and fewer problems that can't be fised when impressible Precious Ramotswe puts her mind to them. A good cup of red bush tea might be the best solution of all.

My take on the book selection;
I really thought this book would be hard to get into, because of the long and somewhat complicated names. I was wrong! I actually found this book hard to put down. It was a gentle tale of strong women, living their lives, while working at being detectives. It was a heartwarming story of friendship between the two lady detectives. I wanted to grab a cup of red bush tea for myself! I recommend to anyone who likes a happy story, with a happy ending.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
