Meena’s story is my kinda story. First, let me say that I am not in love with my Boss. And second, I am not living at home. (But I have been thinking about it.) But Meena is single and successful and for a woman in her culture, she should be married. With both feet firmly planted in the US and supported and surrounded with her family’s Indian values, Meena tries to do the best she can in the dating world. If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me…”You’re so pretty. Why aren’t you married yet?” Anyways, this is not about me.
Shobhan Bantwal is like the Sophie Kinsella of the first and second generation Indian woman living in America. This is really Bollywood in a book. There is even a dance scene and all.
I really loved the supporting characters in this book as well. Meena’s bothers, co-workers, friends, cousins and dates are very well written. I could see Shobhan creating a few books based off of them. I would love to read about her younger cousins dating adventures as well.
I bet you are wondering why I didn’t give it 5 stars. It’s the ending! I love happily ever after. I really do, but this one was just to quick and neat after so much conflict. I would have loved to have more in that area. I am so going to read Shobhan’s other books for sure.
I give this 4 out 5 stars!
