Sweetness comes at a price…

When sweet-natured Mercy married successful businessman and aspiring politician, Lucas Peterson, she abandoned her media career to focus on her husband and raising her son, Hakeem. But with the country now hurtling towards elections, Lucas’s eye is on the ministerial position he craves within the Party and when Mercy’s best friend, Araba – the niece of the Party leader – returns to Ghana, Mercy refuses to see what’s obvious to everyone.

In a desperate bid to regain control of her life, Mercy reaches out to her friend, Max Bamford, a ruthless media boss with a reputation for uncovering corruption. Max’s lifeline changes everything, but Mercy’s hopes for a new beginning are threatened by Lucas’s ambitions and risk the happiness of the person she loves most.

Armed with devastating evidence that can destroy Lucas’s political future, Mercy is torn between protecting her son and taking revenge on his father. Faced with an impossible dilemma, Mercy will have to prove that sweetness can be a strength.

Author’s Comment

“I wrote this as a companion novella to Imperfect Arrangements. It was inspired by Mercy, the woman referred to by Theresa in a conversation with Lyla in Imperfect Arrangements. It was also a useful challenge to write a shorter story for a change! It’s inspired me to consider writing more novellas featuring women living in the exclusive development of Marula Heights, so look out for them!”
