    Description
    A peek into the world of four distinctly different desperates in Dubai

    Oozing with men, money, and Maseratis, Dubai is the ultimate playground for the woman who knows her Louboutins from her Louis Vuittons.

    But for some, there’s a lot more at stake than a Hermes Birkin. Leila has been in search of a wealthy husband for over a decade. Nadia moves to Dubai to support her husband’s career, only to have her sacrifices thrown in her face. Sugar escapes the UK in an attempt to escape her past. Lady Luxe, the rebellious Emirati heiress, scoffs at everything her culture holds sacred. Until the day her double life starts unravelling at the seams.

    Set against a backdrop of luxury hotels and manmade islands, Desperate in Dubai tells the tale of four desperate women as they struggle to find truth, love, and themselves.

    About the Author
    Ameera Al Hakawati, the enigmatic author of Desperate in Dubai, has always known that she was born to be a writer. A natural storyteller, her career began at age three, when she told her very first story to her mother that explained the ‘truth’ behind the missing chocolate biscuits.

    Numerous writing projects and a creative writing degree later, the twenty-something year old Ameera moved to Dubai from London. Inspired by the fascinating lives of the women who dominated the glamorous city, she put pen to paper and created Desperate in Dubai, a blog that soon became an internet sensation among the expatriate community in Dubai.

    Desperate in Dubai is Ameera’s first novel. She is currently still based in Dubai where she lives with her husband and their hamster, Fat Sam.

    Chick lit with a twist

    I would describe this book as chick lit with a twist as it goes beyond the typical boy-meets-girl scenario and talks about social and cultural issues as well. I liked the fact that the characters are not perfect and lovable but somehow you like them even with all of their character flaws. It was difficult to put down!
