I have great news to share with you all today, Finding Love is now available for pre-order on Amazon!!!
Finding Love is the third book in the Smith Women’s Series. This book is coming FOUR YEARS after the release of the second book, Accepting Love and that’s only half of the reason I’m so excited about the upcoming release.
The second and main reason I’m super hyped is that you all will get to see how much my writing has grown since the first book.
The people who have been with me since the very beginning, when I first started writing Remembering Love (the first book) and uploading it as a web series on my defunct blog aminatawastories.com would understand how I feel. Comparing this third book to the previous two, it feels like a completely different person wrote it and that for me is growth.
To be honest, I had given up on writing this story because I just couldn’t wrap my mind around how I wanted to portray Mirabelle. How does she evolve from the sexless African mother to a woman who finds love and is willing to fight for it?
I wanted her to be powerful, intimidating, sexy and dangerous, I wanted her to be in control and I also wanted her man to match up to and complement her in every aspect.
The question that kept nagging me was how I could reconcile the woman I wanted Mirabelle to be and the woman I had already portrayed her to be in the first two books? I also had to keep in mind that the series is also about the huge impact of childhood trauma in the lives of the characters.
After so many rewritings, I finally figured it out but it meant that I had to take a completely different route from what I’d suggested at the end of ‘Accepting Love.’ Although, the plot of Finding Love runs concurrently with Accepting Love.
I’m grateful to my readers who have been with me since the beginning of these stories. Special thanks to Author, Kiru Taye, whose book ‘Keeping Secrets’ inspired the first book, Remembering Love. I basically sampled the story, the way Burna Boy samples Fela.
Just like the first two books, there will be drama, laughter, a little bit of danger but most importantly, there will be Love.
This is the final book in the series but it’s not the end, a spin-off is currently in the works but until it’s fully baked and ready, I don’t want to talk about it.
I sincerely hope you love it as much as you loved the first two books (my most downloaded books so far) and I hope that in everything you do, you find love, laughter and happiness.
Read the blurb below:
To the whole world, Mirabelle Olajumoke Smith is just another rich and typical African mother who lives vicariously through her daughters’ happiness. But there is a darker, daring and sensual side to her that not even her most beloved daughters are aware of.
Her life is perfect and beautiful and her secrets are well hidden – until a younger, bronzed-skinned and deliciously handsome stranger crosses her path and rocks her perfectly designed world.
To truly be together, Mirabelle and Jare must explore the darkest parts of their lives that they had hoped to keep buried forever.
Are they truly ready to set the demons of their pasts loose or will they sacrifice their newly found love to keep their age-old secrets?
