Blue Shoes and Happiness - Alexander McCall Smith This is number 7 in the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series. Grace Makutsi makes the mistake of telling her fiancé that she is a feminist, causing him to become afraid. Mma Ramotswe takes on the problem of a young lady chef who has seen her boss feeding her husband on company food, and is afraid she will be fired if she tells. The employees at a game reserve are being subjected to the fear of witchcraft. An advice columnist piques Ramotswe’s interest, and ire. She turns out to be a central character. The book is pleasant. The stories in this series are quiet endeavors. Perhaps there is more there than I can see, but for now they are pleasant, fast-reading diversions.
