Melody Nyathi has big plans for her future. For now, the ambitious twenty-eight-year-old is a beauty therapist at the plush Imbali Spa in Cape Town, but Melody dreams of one day opening a beauty spa for ‘ordinary’ women. If she’d only stop trying to take care of everyone around her, perhaps she could make her plans reality . . . Then Melody meets insurance broker-cum-business owner Thabiso Gumede, and her heart melts. Their love blossoms almost overnight and Thabiso tries to encourage Melody to reach for her dreams. But does he really want her to succeed or does his jealousy of her male clients have anything to do with it? And should Melody yield her independence to Thabiso to take up an offer that few could refuse?
