The Full Cupboard of Life by Alexander McCall Smith | Audiobook Review

The Full Cupboard of Life (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency #5)

Yup; continuing to read these books!  I got a late start on them, so there's already quite a few available to me.  And, conveniently, my library has them available through our eaudiobook service, so I can download them right away!

The Full Cupboard of Life definitely made me laugh out loud more than any of the previous books!  The detective assignment in this one is to sort through potential suitors for a wealthy owner of a chain of beauty parlors.  My goodness!  Both the owner and the suitors have personality for miles!  On top of that, the proprietor of the orphan farm manages to talk Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni into jumping out of an airplane for a charity fundraiser!  Poor Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni.  A bonus: we readers get to know Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni's two apprentices better in this book, and they're interesting guys.  Especially in their interactions.  :)

This whole book just flew by too quickly.  The same narrator reads The Full Cupboard of Life and does the same great job.  I continue to recommend this series.
