Yinka, Where is Your Huzband?

Listen to a sample

What to expect

Yinka wants to find love. Her mum wants to find it for her.

She also has too many aunties who frequently pray for her delivery from singledom, a preference for chicken and chips over traditional Nigerian food, and a bum she’s sure is far too small as a result. Oh, and the fact that she’s a thirty-one-year-old South-Londoner who doesn’t believe in sex before marriage is a bit of an obstacle too…

When her cousin gets engaged, Yinka commences ‘Operation Find A Date for Rachel’s Wedding’. Armed with a totally flawless, incredibly specific plan, will Yinka find herself a huzband?

What if the thing she really needs to find is herself?

Critics Review

  • Warm and fun and sweet, great on female friendships and extended families

    Marian Keyes
  • Yinka, Where is Your Huzband? was a total joy to read – it’s hilarious, insightful and so uplifting. Yinka is the most lovable character I’ve come across in a long time – I was cheering her on for every step of her journey

    Beth O'Leary
  • Such a warm, funny and relatable book

    Jendella Benson
  • Yinka, Where Is Your Huzband? is the spiritual heir to Bridget Jones’s Diary, while bringing something entirely fresh and modern to the table. Blackburn kept me cringing, laughing, and tearing up from start to finish with her incredible cast of quirky, lovable characters and especially her almost painfully relatable heroine, Yinka. This is a truly special debut

    Emily Henry
  • Beautifully observed, warm and deeply human, Yinka is a meditation on family and friendship, on love and self-love. Feel-good, funny and clever, it’s got smash-hit written all over it!

    Josie Silver
  • Hilarious and heartfelt. Yinka is an unforgettable heroine
