Title: Tears of the Giraffe by Alexander McCall Smith
Comments: The continuing story of Mme Ramotswe, Botswana's sole woman detective. At the end of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency Mme Ramotswe became engaged to her neighbour, mechanic Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni. While Mme Ramotswe is tracking down the 10-year-old mystery of what happened to an American woman's son, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni's generosity sees him expanding his family in unexpected ways. He soon realises that his dream of passing on his love cars to a son will never be fulfilled but there is a caring wheelchair-bound girl who shows an unusual aptitude for all things mechanical.
This book is a seemless continuation of the first and a great read.
