One of the great things about summer is all the reading a person gets to do! Going to exotic locales and using the heat as a means of escape are one of the things we enjoy! A great summer read includes The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith. It takes place in a small town in Botswana and follows Precious Ramotswe as she opens an amateur detective agency and solves cases. This belongs to a genre called “cozy mysteries” because the story does not focus on sex, violence or nitty gritty details; just good, old-fashioned sleuthing. Pull up a chair and a cup of red bush tea and spend an afternoon with Precious Ramotswe. You can find her in the library along with many other great mysteries and summer reads!
