Reviews

This book is definitely a stunner, full of laughs, I was enthralled from start to finish.  

I enjoyed reading this and couldn’t put it down, the story is truly authentic and realistic and I enjoyed the writer’s description of the characters and the humorous twists introduced which heightened the story. A recommended read to all.

This book had me in stitches in particular. A good, fun easy read. I could see Nimbe clearly in my head.
