We are watching the oven door for these upcoming books and here are short excerpts to whet your appetite:

“Isn’t it funny? One person fancies another and that other person is busy crushing on another person entirely. Isn’t it the cruel irony of love?”
“What do you mean, Kiki?” I did not like the way she sounded when she said that.
“Well, there’s Nathan who is obviously in love with Zinhle but she has her heart set on Bengy, who also happens to be Aretha’s boyfriend.” She sniggered.
“Well, you have said it already – such is love’s transgression.” I shrugged, refusing to be pulled into a gossip with her. “You are having fun then?”
“Oh, there is definitely drama in the air. You are getting good at arranging these things, Jo.”
