Miracle at Speedy Motors by Alexander McCall Smith

library book
I loved this book as much as I have love all the others in the series.
As usual we get a glimpse of Mma Ramotswe's gentle life in Botswana as she sets out to do what she does best--help people with their problems and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Mma Ramotswe must find a family for a woman who just found out that she was adopted. She found this out when her adoptive mother died so she doesn't know her real name of whether any members of her family are now living. Mma Makutsi's fiance, Phuti Radiphuti, buys her a beautiful new bed. Unfortunately, she is a bit careless and causes herself trouble. The name of the story comes from the business owned by Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, Mma Ramotswe's husband. He swindled by a doctor who promised a miracle cure for his daughter, who can not walk. Mma Ramotswe finds this hard to believe. One more problem is that some one leaves threatning letters. But she deals with these difficulties with her usual grace and good humor, and in the end the miracles that occur at Speedy Motors are small but heart warming ones.
If you haven't read this series I think you would love it!
