What does it mean to be: The Nigerwife (by Vanessa Walters)

I very much enjoyed this suspenseful novel that catapults the reader into the world of the ex-pat Niger wives and those around them. It is a lifestyle of opulence, a huge clothing budget, parties, clubs…and some missing wives.

What has happened to Nicole? Married to Tonye and the mother of two children, she disappears one day (as did a friend of hers previously). Her husband does not seem overly concerned but a relative from London is. She flies to Lagos to try to get to the bottom of things. It will be tricky and along the way some dirty laundry will come to light. Readers will avidly follow along with Claudine as she investigates and observes. Readers also learn more about Nicole and her life before she was gone.

For those who enjoy suspense stories and who would like to travel to moneyed Nigeria (from your chair), I highly recommend this one. It was a good read..

Many thanks to NetGalley and Atria Books for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
