The Handsome Man's De Luxe Café

The Handsome Man's De Luxe Café

Even the arrival of her baby can’t hold Mma Makutsi back from success in the workplace, and so no sooner than she becomes a full partner in the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency – in spite of Mma Ramotswe’s belated claims that she is only ‘an assistant full partner’ – she also launches a new enterprise of her own: the Handsome Man’s De Luxe Café.

Reviews

Hooray - the unstoppable fiction-machine that is Mr Alexander McCall Smith has returned to the mothership . . . Two new clients turn up [with] a problem that will take more than one pot of Mrs Ramotswe's redbush tea to solve, and she solves it with her trademark humanity, warmth and charm. Irresistible
Kate Saunders, The Times
An ultra-smooth ride . . . almost more blissful than even McCall Smith's millions of regular devotees could pray for or hope
Scotsman
With disquisitions on the failings of the male sex, the benefits of tea, and the novel concept of pilates with cake, this puts the world to rights in typically charming fashion
