Review quote

Shortlisted for "Best Books of 2012" by Africa Book Club "Nothing Comes Close explores the usual love story in a very fresh manner, employing lovely prose, suspense and the posing of serious questions to tell an immensely entertaining story. Highly recommended." Richard Ali, Editor-in-Chief, Sentinel Nigeria Magazine. A truly African love story, Nothing Comes Close shows us how African women fall in love-cautiously but completely. Before I began reading, I was worried that Nothing Comes Close would be a generic romance novel about characters with African names. My worries were certainly dispelled as it became apparent that the characters and their lives were crafted by someone who has an eye for and a sense of how African woman think about love and romance. If you enjoyed reading Chibundo Onuzo's Spider King's Daughter, you'll like Nothing Comes Close. It is a romance novel, an adorable chick lit, but it also has a touch of thriller and mystery. Ainehi Edoro, Editor, Brittle Paper In her debut novel, Popoola, explores a theme familiar to most of us, which is that of finding love. However, an unexpected death, imprisonment, betrayal and dark secrets, add twists that make this book much more than a boy meets girl story. A fine debut. Yejide Kilanko, Author of Daughters Who Walk This Pathshow more
