The Handsome Man's Deluxe Cafe by Alexander McCall Smith

In this latest mystery in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi are hired by Mr. Sengupta to find out if the woman that he's taken into his home really has amnesia or if she's faking for some reason. Mma Makutsi is also starting a new business venture, The Handsome Man's Deluxe Cafe. While she has the funds to set up the restaurant and hire staff, she is not so experienced in what it takes to run a successful restaurant. In addition, the detective agency gets it's third employee, Charlie, whom Mma Ramotswe takes under her wing when he's let go from Tlokweng Speedy Motors, her husband's business right next door. Will Charlie's being young and having a completely different work ethic from the ladies make him a good fit for the agency? In typical fashion, McCall Smith focuses on the relationships between the characters with a bit of mystery thrown in.  It will be published in October.
