'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 Roman arrives on the scene, and Yola just can't help herself. Could this wildly inappropriate (and very messy) romance be the perfect antidote?
