Summary: Korede’s spoiled and beautiful sister Ayoola has a habit of killing her boyfriends. Up to now Korede has dutifully cleaned up her sister’s messes. When her sister catches the eye of the handsome doctor Korede has a crush on, however, she begins to question where her loyalties lie.
Ayoola summons me with these words — Korede, I killed him.
I had hoped I would never hear those words again.
I picked up this novel because it is the title the Writer Unboxed Facebook group plans to dissect on Oct. 24-27. Writer Unboxed is a long running and highly informative blog for writers. The Facebook group reads a novel together and discusses it from a writer’s perspective.
Plus, I have to admit the title made me curious.
What do you think? Would read about a character who covers up for a serial killer?
