“The most loving parents and relatives commit murder with smiles on their faces. They force us to destroy the person we really are: a subtle kind of murder.”
When Korede’s dinner is interrupted one night by a distress call from her sister, Ayoola, she knows what’s expected of her: bleach, rubber gloves, nerves of steel and a strong stomach. This’ll be the third boyfriend Ayoola’s dispatched in, quote, self-defence and the third mess that her lethal little sibling has left Korede to clear away. She should probably go to the police for the good of the menfolk of Nigeria, but she loves her sister and, as they say, family always comes first. Until, that is, Ayoola starts dating the doctor where Korede works as a nurse. Korede’s long been in love with him, and isn’t prepared to see him wind up with a knife in his back: but to save one would mean sacrificing the other…
Ok this book was CRAZY. I mean who doesn’t this amount of killing and gets away with it? Obviously Ayoola. You see, you gots to be beautiful so you can do everything you want lol I’m kidding. but that’s exactly how that was portrayed I this book.
Ayoola is a beautiful woman and has men proposing her and well her sister, Korede, is a nurse who mainly picks up after Ayoola’s mess. She feels responsible for her sister’s actions. After all, they are family. Is the unconditional love you have for one another that you will have each other’s back no matter what.
The underlining truth of why Korede protects her sister with all these murders makes total sense towards the ending.
I think the doctor was a shallow man. You’ll know what I mean when you pick up this book. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. It was a fast pace novel that kept my attention from beginning to end.
