Review: Wahala by Nikki May

  • Post category:books

I've been a bit out of the loop when it comes to publishing recently. So I'm gonna be honest -- I was attracted to this one first by the cover, then by the synopsis, then pleasantly surprised that everyone else seemed to already be on board. Built-in bookclubs, yay!
