Love it or hate it, this series is addictive! The steamy scenes mixed with uncontrollable emotions, and the element of forbidden desire, makes for page-turning reading . The fun-loving Bridgerton family draw us into their lives, as each of the siblings dare to date their soulmates. Set during the Regency period in England, the Bridgerton girls brave criticism, and the Bridgerton boys break conventions, all in the name of love.

There are moments when these books will have you laughing out loud. This parody of Chinese billionaire culture hits the mark as it describes some of the most unbelievable yet real lifestyles of Asia’s elite. Stereotypical large Chinese families compete with each other for status, while looking down their noses at honest, hardworking, middle class citizens. Hilarious comparisons within the Chinese diaspora, create some of the funniest dialogue between the characters. Amongst all the opulence, lies family secrets, prejudices, and other rich people problems.

Mma Ramotse’s kindness and challenges extend beyond her business though, as she also shares with us her personal ups and downs of being a wife, mother, business owner, and lady detective in Africa. Each case brings adventure, laughter, and life lessons which makes for joyous reading.
