Yinka wants to find love. Her mum wants to find it for her.
But how can she find a huzband when she is surrounded by her many aunties who frequently (and loudly) pray for her delivery from singledom, has a preference for chicken and chips over traditional Nigerian food, and a bum she’s sure is far too small as a result? Oh, and the fact that she’s a thirty-one-year-old South Londoner who doesn’t believe in sex before marriage is a bit of an obstacle too…
When her cousin gets engaged, Yinka commences ‘Operation Find A Date For Rachel’s Wedding’. Armed with a totally flawless (and incredibly specific) plan, will Yinka find herself a huzband?
What if the thing she really needs to find . . . is herself?
Hilarious and wildly entertaining, this tale of love, culture, family and friendship will have you rooting hard for Yinka!
I enjoyed this book but ultimately was a little disappointed by the ending, hence my 3/5 star rating.
I loved Yinka as a character, her vibrancy and the journey she went on. All the characters were so strong and I could really see most of the situations playing out.
The text formatting in my netgalley copy was a little skewed but I managed to work out what was happening.
It was uplifting and heartbreaking at the same time to witness Yinka’s journey of confidence and self-love.
Easy enough to read, meaning light hearted and quick.
