The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon

The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon by Alexander McCall Smith (Random House, 2013)

Fans will probably recognize by the title that this is the latest eagerly awaited novel in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. There is something about translating titles from non-European languages that results in odd phrases like the one in the title; a fact McCall Smith uses to his advantage even though his books are all published originally in English as far as I know. In this installment of the saga, the agency’s newly married assistant detective is pregnant and delivers a baby boy, but the detective work goes on as always.
