Book Review: Thorns and Roses

Book description:

Ifeoma and her sisters escaped an emotionally abusive father to start a new life in Lagos. She is determined to never let another man have control over her, even if that means never falling in love. That is until she meets Chuma, a wealthy and domineering man who is exactly the kind of man she is determined to stay away from but somehow can’t seem to keep away from. An unlikely relationship develops, taking them from joy to a devastating loss and finally to betrayal. Ifeoma must decide, but she is torn between her painful past and a chance at a future with Chuma…

Chuma is a cutthroat obsessive financial mogul whose sole purpose in life is to make his family name great. And he is determined to let nothing distract him from achieving his goal. But when he meets Ifeoma, an elusive, hardworking chef, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to her. They embark on a turbulent journey of friendship and love, which is eventually shattered by tragedy. Chuma wants to heal the rift that has grown between them and will go to any lengths to do so. However, he encounters secrets from her past...


“Thorns and Roses” is a romance novel by Amaka Azie.

As hoped and expected, a very lovely and enjoyable story. In fact, it was the style of narration that made the story enjoyable, and the fact that there was dialogue from the start made me put voices and character to each character. Also, I’ve already read a little about the two main characters (in Melodies of Love), Chuma, enough to know the type of person he is, and Ifeoma, not so much before, so it was nice to know her own story.

I like how the characters are introduced, especially Chuma, as Mr. Frown-Face; you don’t have to be the smartest person in the world to know that he never smiles; and I liked how Ifeoma watched him from the shadows, making me long for the moment they finally meet.

When It's Murder: Character Look Alike - Sonia

#Hello #Wednesday #CharacterLookAlike

If my book “When It’s Murder” was a #Nollywood movie, another important character Sonia Bruen would be played by Uche Jombo.

Sonia is a calculating friend and lover, who would do whatever it takes to get what she wants. The secrets she has and knows are guaranteed to cause havoc, so she’s willing to keep them, as long as hers are safe!

The first person that came to mind who can play the role with both maturity and talent was Uche Jombo (from the little I've seen her play in movies). She looks calm but can get crazy when things get crazy. Also, her complexion and physical features are similar to that of Sonia.

When It's Murder: Character Look Alike - Samuel

#Goodmorning #Tuesday #CharacterLookAlike

If my book “When It’s Murder” was a #Nollywood movie, another important character Samuel Lake would be played by Richard Mofe-Damijo.

Just like Samuel Lake, Richard Mofe-Damijo is on the older side... a sophisticated older gentleman. And since he was born in Warri, and Warri people are naturally funny, I'm sure he'll do a fantastic job interpreting a comic role, especially when exasperated with Emilia McGreg and her many troubles 😀.

When It's Murder: Character Look Alike - Emilia

#Goodmorning #Monday #CharacterLookAlike

If my book “When It’s Murder” was a #Nollywood movie, my main character Emilia McGreg would be played by Tonto Dikeh. I must admit that I don't really remember the titles of all the Nollywood movies I've seen, but in the last few movies I saw of Tonto Dikeh (many years back), the different characters she played across all the films were somewhat similar, similar in a way that could look like Emilia.

Just like Emilia, Tonto is eccentric, unique, and doesn't keep calm until she gets what she wants, and they both have a lot of tattoos 😊.
