"The 30th Candle"

New in the US from Lake Union: The 30th Candle by Angela Makholwa.

About the book, from the publisher:

They thought they would be friends forever―but what comes first, friendship or love?

Linda, Dikeledi, Nolwazi and Sade spent their twenties pursuing fast-paced careers and love lives in vibrant Johannesburg. Now, with their thirties just around the corner, they know the one thing they can count on is each other, but it turns out even the firmest friendships have secrets…

On the cusp of their thirtieth birthdays, just when everything should be going to plan, their lives start to derail. Dikeledi is still waiting for her boyfriend to propose, while Linda finds herself single again, wondering if she’ll ever meet her perfect man. Hiding behind their drama, Nolwazi has a secret she’s too scared to reveal, and Sade thinks she’s finally found ‘the one’―but is he too good to be true?

As secrets are spilled, relationships are tested to their limits. When they’re forced to make the choice, who will win―love or friendship?
