    Book Synopsis:

    Ronke wants happily ever after and 2.2. kids. She’s dating Kayode and wants him to be “the one” (perfect, like her dead father). Her friends think he’s just another in a long line of dodgy Nigerian boyfriends.

    Boo has everything Ronke wants—a kind husband, gorgeous child. But she’s frustrated, unfulfilled, plagued by guilt, and desperate to remember who she used to be.

    Simi is the golden one with the perfect lifestyle. No one knows she’s crippled by impostor syndrome and tempted to pack it all in each time her boss mentions her “urban vibe.” Her husband thinks they’re trying for a baby. She’s not.

    When the high-flying, charismatic Isobel explodes into the group, it seems at first she’s bringing out the best in each woman. (She gets Simi an interview in Shanghai! Goes jogging with Boo!) But the more Isobel intervenes, the more chaos she sows, and Ronke, Simi, and Boo’s close friendship begins to crack.

    A sharp, modern take on friendship, ambition, culture, and betrayal, Wahala (trouble) is an unforgettable novel from a brilliant new voice.

    Review from a previous reader: 

    The lengths she would go! This book had me saying, "No she didn't," the whole way through. I think the recipes at the end were a nice touch. I wish I had seen them in the beginning (my own fault for skipping the table of contents) so that I could enjoy them with the book. This story is a good reminder to be grateful for all I have and not think the greener on the other side. That and be very careful who I share my personal business with.

    So many books ans so little time

    Shipping is really quick. I love the goodies in the box besides the book. It's a great way to showcase other Black businesses. The merch and the book boxes never disappoints. My favorite box's are the indie book boxes. I love to support independent authors. I have to treat myself once a month (or more) with literally Black. Also I enjoy the book as well. It's something I always look forward to and it helps get my tbr list down lol!

    Very Disappointed but support my sisters

    I don’t know what I was expecting more like and Ipsy or FabFitFun volume of products. Paying $62 in total for a book, bookmark, tea bag and diffuser.

    The Audacity

    I can’t lie, this book has parts in it that’s making me upset at the audacity of these characters. But all in all, I have yet to stop reading it so, that says something there.
