June Book Club

Last night we got together again for book club. Randi chose this month's book, "Morality for Beautiful Girls" by Alexander McCall Smith. Morality for Beautiful Girls is the third in The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series of novels set in Gaborone, Botswana.

In Morality for Beautiful Girls, Precious Ramotswe, founder and owner of the only detective agency for the concerns of both ladies and others, investigates the alleged poisoning of the brother of an important “Government Man,” and the moral character of the four finalists of the Miss Beauty and Integrity Contest, the winner of which will almost certainly be a contestant for the title of Miss Botswana. Yet her business is having money problems, and when other difficulties arise at her fiance’s Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, she discovers the reliable Mr J.L.B. Matekoni is more complicated then he seems.

While we discussed the book last night, Randi fed us a healthy menu of homemade wheat rolls, chicken salad, veggies, crispy baked wonton skins and mini cheddar rice cakes. It was all very delicious! Then we watched an episode of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency as it has been made into a TV series. Until next month!
