About Book

In spite of the constant dramas from fighting wives and jealous friends, she has succeeded in creating a good life for herself as a socialite and the President of the Imose Sisters Association of Accomplished and Distinguished Ladies.

Her life is however thrown into commotion when a business deal goes bad, ushering her on to a downward spiral of confusion, disappointment and disaster. Can she overcome these challenges as she once did and create a new and better life for herself?

This is a hilarious satire chronicling the lives of local mistresses and their hustle. This book will make you laugh and shake your head at the ridiculous reality of some people.


My Review 


     Paulina, the main character in this story, who is an older woman who runs a beer palor in the town of nimbe, she not only satisfy the men who frequent her shop with booze, but also with her volumptuous body which cause a lot of dramas, fights and noises in paulina’s compound.
This book centers around paulina, her friends, her rivals, her men, their wives, her workers and her children. Its not only clearly showed me what it takes to rule a whole town with your body, your money and fame but also the consequences that follows while doing those things.
The story mostly shows the interesting activities surrounding Paulina’s  life and how she enjoyed being the centre of attraction everywhere she is, until things start going downward for her.
I really had a good time with this book. It was lighthearted, interesting, funny, annoying, and at the same time had so many messages to pass across. I didn’t expect the ending I got but I tell you it was the most befitting.

3.5/5 stars
