Just read Alexander McCall Smith In the Company of Cheerful Ladies & Sunday Philosophy Club back to back. These books are about Women detectives, no thriller crime to be uncovered but normal, everyday, garden variety problems and incidents that need a piece of detection and logical thinking. Detection is the backdrop but the story is the offering actually. A light book with simple characters and their simple problems, reminiscent of the school day English Readers. They drag in the beginning but per up towards the second half. Once develops a rapport with and a liking for the protagonist very quickly. There are funny moments scattered about. I will definitely go for more in the series.
