One Year of Ugly

‘A perfect staycation read’ Guardian

‘Funny, dark and brilliantly written… should be top of your TBR’ Stylist Magazine

‘Extraordinarily excellent’ Daily Mail

‘A completely addictive read that is laugh-out-loud funny’ Heat Magazine

Set in Trinidad, and told with wry humour and irresistible wit, ONE YEAR OF UGLY is a story of family, first love, and finding home.

When their beloved Aunt Celia dies, Yola and her family discover she had been keeping a huge secret – she was seriously in debt to local criminal, Ugly, and they must do his bidding until the debt is cleared..

So far, so ugly.

And then Ugly’s distracting gorgeous right-hand man Román arrives on the scene, and Yola just can’t help herself. Could this wildly inappropriate (and very messy) romance be the perfect antidote?
