The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency #1) The No. 1 Lady Detective, Precious Ramotswe, is clever, practical and enterprising. She solves puzzling mysteries for her neighbors, outwitting dishonest husbands, con artists and thieves. The setting of Botswana plays a fascinating role in the story too. I love Alexander McCall Smith's witty and insightful style.
Peter Fallon and his girlfriend Evangeline are on the trail of an annotated first draft of the Constitution. They encounter a whole cast of sketchy characters during their search and barely escape with their lives. Who knew being an antique bookseller and document sleuth was such a dangerous line of work! This latest historical adventure by William Martin is a page-turner
This series is set in Napoleonic France and in present-day England. I like the parallel stories and the element of espionage. The stories of Eloise and Colin in modern London and Richard and Amy in 19th century Paris are equally appealing. I will definitely read more of the series.
