Waiting to Exhale meets The Real Housewives of Saudi Arabia.

The women in this juicy novel have 99 problems—all relating to men. Through a series of emails, an undisclosed narrator recounts the tumultuous love stories of four upper-class Muslim twenty-somethings in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. At a time in their lives when marriage seems to be the most important goal, the characters discover all that glitters is certainly not gold. I’m telling you, some of the characters in the story experience the kind of man-drama that could make someone catch a case. This entertaining novel is filled with drama and unexpected turns.
