Meet Yinka. And Yinka’s mum. And Yinka’s aunties. Who are all asking . . . YINKA, WHERE IS YOUR HUZBAND?


‘Your bookself needs this . . . full of heart’ Jendella Benson, Hope and Glory
‘Love story? Nah, more of a self-love story!’ Reader *****

Yinka wants to find love. Her problem? Her mum wants to find it for her.

She also has too many aunties who frequently pray for her delivery from singledom. Plus there’s her preference for chicken and chips over traditional Nigerian food, and a bum she’s sure is far too small as a result. Oh, and the fact that she’s thirty-one and doesn’t believe in sex before marriage might be a bit of an obstacle too . . .

So when her cousin gets engaged, Yinka commences ‘Operation Find A Date for Rachel’s Wedding’. Armed with a totally flawless, incredibly specific plan, will Yinka find herself a huzband?

What if the thing she really needs to find is herself?

Hilarious and wildly entertaining, this tale of love, culture, family and friendship will have you rooting hard for Yinka! THE TIMES bestseller and MARIE CLAIRE ‘BEST BOOKS OF 2022’
