Ayoola calls her sister whenever she gets into trouble and Korede always comes and cleans everything up. She has learned a few tricks working at the hospital. Things change when Ayoola starts dating the man that Korede has her eye on. This book was fast paced and contains dark humor. It was a fun and interesting read.
The bonds of sisterhood are strained in this darkly humorous crime novel. Korede is the complete opposite of her younger sister Ayoola. Ayoola is beautiful, charismatic and charming where Korede is plain and methodical. Korede is a nurse, a key factor is what Ayoola uses her for - cleaning up after she murders the men she is dating. Korede knows Ayoola is out of control, but quietly aids her sister until Ayoola sets her sights on the man Korede is secretly in love with.
Korede was just settling in for the night when she get's a call from her sister; dinner was coming out of the oven, the movie was paused, the night was set. A call from Ayoola means her dinner will get cold, the movie will be removed, bleach and gloves will need to be packed, and a plan to dispose of the body will need to be thought of quick.
