I'm recovered from my 'tantrum' yesterday:)
If you'll remember, I lost my Granny Christmas Day, and was able to bring home most of her books (there were several I, quite frankly, did not want) from her bookshelves. Over the past several weeks, I've reread Eight Cousins, skimmed an original Prince and the Pauper; and devoured some tame, older romance books (Susan Wiggs comes to mind, but can't remember the title). But the next three caught my eye because of the titles, and I liked the back cover of the first one, so I loaded the other two in that series into my 'take home' box. I've just spent the past four days reading the first book, and I'm disappointed to learn Granny didn't have the second. I began the 3rd book yesterday, and now want to own the entire series. So here are the covers and a brief description; check them out for yourselves:)
This is the first in the series. It tells the story of how Precious Ramotswe from Botswana, Africa, came to open her detective agency and solved several complicated cases, including twin 'doctors'. It's available on Amazon
Number #4 is intriguing by the title alone, isn't it? And while finding these books on Amazon, I discovered there are about 13 in the entire series:) So I will be putting the rest on my print TBB list, or at least seeing if these are available at our library.
The African names are hard to pronounce, but after a while I found myself compensating for them. Sort of the same way I had to for one character's name in Marian Keys' Sushi For Beginners.
So there's my Recommended Read for the month. Any new series (or books) you've discovered you'd care to share?
Have a great day!
