(No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency #5)

In ‘The Full Cupboard of Life’ Mma Ramotswe is beginning to get a little antsy about her engagement – which is stretching out indefinitely, with no wedding date set. Mr. JLB Maketoni is a fine man and a great, honest mechanic – but his issues with depression make him a little indecisive when it comes to important matters such as marriage. However, he’s sometimes easily pushed into things too – and here he finds himself terrified to have been pushed by the matron of the orphan farm into sorta-of agreeing to do a parachute jump for charity. Meanwhile, a wealthy woman hires the detective agency to investigate the possible ulterior motives of her multiple suitors.
