Happiness is a Four-letter Word by Nozizwe Cynthia Jele
Four friends’ lives seem to be crashing before them: Nandi’s ex-fiancé makes a reappearance; Zaza, the ‘trophy wife’, hopes to keep her infidelities a secret; a stranger shows up at Tumi’s doorstep, carrying her husband’s child; and when Princess discovers she’s pregnant, her boyfriend goes AWOL.
Think Sex and the City, Sandton … ideal for lovers of chick lit.
