28: Tears of the Giraffe: Alexander McCall Smith: ISBN 0-349-11665-2
Sequel to The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency this book is equally delightful. Following Precious Ramotswe's detective agency through more interesting and touching cases, and her life through interesting changes. It still has an utter delight in the landscape and traditions of Botswana and its people. And overall it has a huge emphasis on the importance of family and friends and being nice to one-another. Lovely.
