Steven Harding is a handsome, well-respected professor.
Ellie Masterson is a wide-eyed young college student.

Together, they are driving south from New York, for their first holiday: three days in an isolated cabin, far from the city.

Ahead of them, the promise of long, dark nights – and the chance to explore one another’s bodies, away from disapproving eyes.

It should be a perfect, romantic trip for two.



Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my copy to review on netgalley. I have heard a lot of buzz surrounding this book which indicates how big it will be .

I inhaled the first half, I was hooked!

It’s written so well weaving from him to her seamlessly .

Addictive and intoxicating , a bit like their relationship. Compelling and disturbing…

Unpredictable , tense and gripping . You think you know where its going but you really don’t…

I loved it and know its going to be flying off the shelves this summer.

Ronke, Simi, Boo are three mixed-race friends living in London.
They have the gift of two cultures, Nigerian and English.
Not all of them choose to see it that way.

Everyday racism has never held them back, but now in their thirties, they question their future. Ronke wants a husband (he must be Nigerian); Boo enjoys (correction: endures) stay-at-home motherhood; while Simi, full of fashion career dreams, rolls her eyes as her boss refers to her urban vibe yet again.

When Isobel, a lethally glamorous friend from their past arrives in town, she is determined to fix their futures for them.

Cracks in their friendship begin to appear, and it is soon obvious Isobel is not sorting but wrecking. When she is driven to a terrible act, the women are forced to reckon with a crime in their past that may just have repeated itself.

Explosive, hilarious and wildly entertaining, this razor-sharp tale of love, race and family will have you laughing, crying and gasping in horror. Fearlessly political about class, colourism and clothes, the spellbinding Wahala is for anyone who has ever cherished friendship, in all its forms.

I had the pleasure of listening to Nikki at Bay tales in February and I was intrigued about her book.

I loved this cover to cover and couldn’t pit it down.

Rich in culture and differences, this is a fascinating read

A close examination into friendships and how even as adults they can quickly return to school playground tactics. Jealously, resentment and bitterness are running through these pages

Unpredictable, fast paced and deliciously addictive.

Fresh ,witty and sexy . This is a new voice in this genre and I can’t wait to read more from her!
