"The Dohmestics" by Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar {Book Review}

Welcome to My Cozie Corner's stop on 
"The Dohmestics" book tour. 
This tour is brought to you by Innovative Book Tours.


Edna, Amira, and Noof are neighbors but that doesn't mean they know what happens behind closed doors or that they have anything in common with their hired help. 

Maria, Maya, and Lillie live in the same compound as their employers but that's where the similarities begin and end. 

There's never a dull moment for anyone in this desert emirate. 

The unending gossip and unrelenting competition may be business as usual for expatriate communities but the unspoken secrets threaten to destroy life as everyone knows it.

About the Author, Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar:

Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar is a South Asian American who has lived in Qatar since 2005. Moving to the Arabian Desert was fortuitous in many ways since this is where she met her husband, had a baby, and made the transition from writing as a hobby to a full time passion.  She has since published five e-books including a mom-ior for first time mothers, Mommy But Still Me, a guide for aspiring writers, So You Want to Sell a Million Copies, a short story collection, Coloured and Other Stories, and a novel about women’s friendships, Saving Peace. Most recently, From Dunes to Dior, is a collection of essays related to her experiences as a female South Asian American living in the Arabian Gulf. After she joined the e-book revolution, she dreams in plot lines.

Purchase "The Dohmestics" on:


In "The Dohmestics" the author takes us to the middle east following the story of three women of different levels of privilege and their servants. In a nice flowing and surprising plot filled with power, tragedy, heartache and sadness, her characters come to life and show you how it is in their world. 

I give "The Dohmestics" a 4 star rating.
