Morality for Beautiful Girls

All Alexander McCall Smith books are recommended by Orson Scott Card, so this one qualifies!

In this 3rd book of the No. 1 Ladies Dectective Agency series, Mma Ramotswe continues to run her business, but in a new local, while Mr. J. L. B. Matekoni experiences an illness. Mma Ramotswe takes on a case with a government man regarding his concerns that his brother is being poisoned by his wife and Mma Makutsi steps it up by running the two businesses. She also brings in some cash with a beauty pageant assignment.

This one was a little slow for me, but I still thought there were some interesting little tidbits. I liked how the morality issue subtly came into play with the cases they were involved in and how they personally dealt with them. All in all, it was a comfortable, but just okay read.
