No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency Series (18 Book Series)

Fans around the world adore the best-selling No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series and its proprietor, Precious Ramotswe, Botswana’s premier lady detective. In this charming series, Mma  Ramotswe—with help from her loyal associate, Grace Makutsi—navigates her cases and her personal life with wisdom, good humor, and the occasional cup of tea.

This first novel in Alexander McCall Smith’s widely acclaimed The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series tells the story of the delightfully cunning and enormously engaging Precious Ramotswe, who is drawn to her profession to “help people with problems in their lives.” Immediately upon setting up shop in a small storefront in Gaborone, she is hired to track down a missing husband, uncover a con man, and follow a wayward daughter. But the case that tugs at her heart, and lands her in danger, is a missing eleven-year-old boy, who may have been snatched by witchdoctors.

The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency received two Booker Judges’ Special Recommendations and was voted one of the International Books of the Year and the Millennium by the Times Literary Supplement.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cozy And Fun Read, February 19, 2013 By L.I. LINDA (LI NY)

This book reads like a P.B.S. television mystery series. I am an Anglophile and enjoyed every page. I highly recommend it to lovers of all things British.

A great surprise, March 14, 2013 By Bookworm -this book was a wonderful surprise. Lots of charming characters that you will fall in love with--whether they are good guys or bad. The setting is fabulous--you feel right at home in the beautiful homes and their gorgeous surroundings in England. This is a terrific page-turner that you won't be able to put down.

A cozy read, February 18, 2013 - By Tricia (Los Gatos, CA) - I can't resist a baffling murder on a foggy night on an English estate in the 1940's. Add a little romance, a handsome ex-inspector with a curious past, a spunky young lady looking for clues and a mansion full of suspects. It was an enjoyable read and I hope Jeremy and Rachel will have more mysteries to solve in the future.

Fantastic and well written, 19 Jan 2013 -By Forensic 321 (Amazon UK)- This is one of the better murder mysteries I have read in a while. I thoroughly enjoyed the picturesque narration.

Great English manor house mystery!!, February 16, 2013 By David Malmberg - Really enjoyed it! Reminded me of Agatha Christie at her best.

Enjoyable Christie like caper. 18 Jan 2013 By G Moore "Neferankh" (Edinburgh, Scotland) (Amazon UK) - Highly enjoyable country house murder. Believable characters and plenty of plot twists and turns.

Murder in the English countryside, February 12, 2013 By Mo - This was just pure fun. The mysterious murder was eventually solved, with many twists and turns. I enjoyed reading this one. The author took you through the villages and small towns, and through the murder, too. I was sad it was over, and that is how I like to feel about a book.

A Great First Novel, January 27, 2013 By Anita Nelam - If you enjoy the more modern "British Cozy" I encourage you to select this book.

Shopaholic (8 Book Series)
From Book 1: BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic to the Stars.

Becky Bloomwood has a fabulous flat in London’s trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season’s must-haves. The only trouble is, she can’t actually afford it—not any of it. Her job writing at Successful Saving magazine not only bores her to tears, it doesn’t pay much at all. And lately Becky’s been chased by dismal letters from the bank—letters with large red sums she can’t bear to read. She tries cutting back. But none of her efforts succeeds. Her only consolation is to buy herself something . . . just a little something.
Finally a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life—and the lives of those around her—forever.
Praise for Sophie Kinsella and Confessions of a Shopaholic
“A hilarious tale . . . hijinks worthy of classic I Love Lucy episodes . . . too good to pass up.”USA Today
“Kinsella’s Bloomwood is plucky and funny. . . . You won’t have to shop around to find a more winning protagonist.”People
“If a crème brûlée could be transmogrified into a book, it would be Confessions of a Shopaholic.”The Star-Ledger
“A have-your-cake-and-eat-it romp, done with brio and not a syllable of moralizing. . . . Kinsella has a light touch and puckish humor.”Kirkus Reviews

The Nick Spalding Collection
From Mad Love:

Can two people who have never met make a marriage work? Popular dating site Sociality thinks so, and is marrying London lad Adam to California girl Jessica to prove it.

What better way to show that your 'love algorithms' work than to put two complete strangers together in an expensive publicity stunt? But, as livewire Jess and lazybones Adam quickly discover, just because a computer says you're the perfect match, it doesn't make it so!

Two million Sociality subscribers and the media are following the happy couple's progress, and they have to make a go of it or they'll lose everything, look like idiots, and destroy Sociality's reputation. But can the mismatched pair, who seem to be constantly at each other's throats, put their differences aside and work their way into each other's hearts?

Nick Spalding, bestselling author of Fat Chance and Bricking It, will make you cry with laughter at this story of marital warfare-complete with sinking boats, badly aimed flatulence, well aimed tennis balls and some very suggestive pastry.
