This is #6 in The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. Mma Rwatse lies on her bed and squeezes out a mysterious intruder who had hidden there. He flees sans pants that got caught on the bed. Is there any relationship between this stranger and the pumpkin that appears on her porch? Mma Makuti is taking up dancing, hoping to meet a man. One of the apprentices at the car shop is dating a rich married woman and foolishly puts far too many eggs in that basket.
Smith continues along with his set of charming characters. While the book retains the charm of its predecessors, I felt that the series was running out of steam with number 5. It is still the case. He will need to offer something a bit more to make ensuing entries worth the time.
