The Colors of All the Cattle by Alexander McCall Smith

Mma Ramotswe doesn't really want to run for a council position but her friends want her to.  She finally agrees but hopes she loses the election...

Pantheon and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published today.

They want her to run for office to stop construction of a new hotel right next to a cemetery.  The locals don't want it there.  She's only one council member, but she'll vote against it.  She doesn't even hang around to see the election results.  She heads out of town to find out who hit the doctor who has asked her to investigate.  She visits with the mother of her suspect and finds out she's picked the right young man.

My favorite part of this story is that Charlie opens up and confides in her.  He's not shared much in the past but he's talking now.

I also enjoyed how her long term as council member lasted.

This is a good series and I always enjoy reading these stories.
