Tears of the Giraffe (by Alexander McCall Smith)*

Second book in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, on audiobook. Read by the same reader who did the first book. I liked it just as much, although I thought some of the plot twists at the end were a little too neat, and the central mystery and major conflicts were each too easily solved. (For instance, that business with the maid.) Okay, maybe I didn't like it just as much! I did still enjoy it though, and right away I tried to buy the third one, except iTunes doesn't like me. But there were charming vignettes (such as engagement ring shopping and the story of the orphans) that kept me interested. I'm definitely hooked on the series, and will get the next one ASAP!
