Tea Time for the Traditionally Built is the 10th novel of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith. Smith writes a number of book series simultaneously, but Detective Agency is his most popular, with an HBO series even premiering a few years ago.
This is a fantastic series, and Tea Time is perhaps my favorite yet. The books are as much about the characters and their lives as the cases they solve. They are fresh, charming, and beautifully-written, and I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a little something to slow down their fast-paced day.
