Summary: Mess is the fifth book of the Hlomu series. I cried myself to sleep when I finished reading the book because my heart was sore and I could not believe that Mqoqi had died. The Mess afforded me a chance to get to know Mqoqiwokuhle better and who he was on his own with the Zulu brothers title. A lot of secrets from the past also came back to haunt the brothers and these include the heist, Amanda and the Bhungane brothers.
What I loved about the book
*The author managed to talk about mental health issues.
*Men are also victims of domestic violence.
*It is okay for someone to express their emotions or feelings.
*Toxic relationships can kill someone slowly.
*Money cannot buy happiness.
*Childhood traumas play a part in our adult life and choices.
My favourite characters: Mqoqi, Lahliwe
