The Full Cupboard of Life – Review

“I am a great drinker of tea. I cannot understand why anybody would want to drink anything else when there is tea to be had. I have never been able to understand that.”

I agree 100%! I’m so glad to jump back into the series. Picking up this book was a much needed change of pace from one of my heavier reads. I needed some tea time and some laughs while visiting Mma Ramotswe. She’s been engaged for the 5 books in the series (I think) and I’ve been waiting to see WHEN this lovely engaged lady will get married. A wonderful rooibos made for a refreshing tea affogato while I read this book.

Her marital status is something she thinks seriously about when one of her clients, a rich lady and owner of many hair salons, asks Mma Ramotswe to investigate the men on a lists she’s compiled. She wants to know if they are marrying her for her money or if they are really honest and suitable marriage material.

Mma Makutsi has encountered a few changes in her life, a positive one is that she’s moving to a very nice home of her own instead of the small room she shared with her sick brother for many many years.

Mr. J.L.B Matekoni is pushed into a corner by the director of the orphanage, Mma Potokwane who means well, but Mma Ramotswe helps get things straight kindly and graciously. This one has been one of my favorite in the series so far.

Tea refreshes. It clears the mind. Tea is good at any time of the day, but especially at mid-day, when it is so hot.”

What’s your go to book(s) when you need something entertaining and light to read?

    1. I feel like it’s a perfect choice for that. I have been picking them up more often because I can read one sometimes in a day when I have time. I have been enjoying the audiobooks for the series too, the narrator, Lisette Lecat, is fantastic

  1. I used to love this series and then somehow lost track of it a few books ago. Great for a bit of relaxation and a reminder that even crime novels can show the good side of people sometimes.. 🙂

    1. I went and had a look at your post. I think it’s fun to have some fun reading. I don’t think I’ve ever felt book shamed about something I’m reading. If we are reading and we enjoy it then I say read!! 😊
