Right she's supposed to already have. Enter a series of humorously awful first-and-last dates. As Lina scans client files for potential husbands, a handsome complication walks into her life.
Raja, a member of India's royalty, needs Lina to find a suitable match for his brother. While Raja and Lina team up to arrange this union, unexpected sparks fly.

The insights into Bengali culture are interesting, but the writing lacks nuance and the action proceeds at an uneven pace. I really liked that fact this the protagonist in the story was Indian. It was a nice change of pace, especially since I enjoy learning about other cultures.

It was a quick easy read, fun, and fluffy. The only thing that could have made it better in my eyes would be sex scenes, they were non-existant in this book. I am planning on bringing this with me to Charleston, South Carolina to release at the Bookcrossing Convention!! Another book I got from Apolonia at the live swap at the Charleston Bookcrossing Convention with my new strategy of taking your book so you can't steal from me!!
Thanks so much and it was great seeing you again!!

Lina is feeling the pressure to get married when she returns to India for her younger sister's wedding. All of her relatives are asking her if she has found a man, and the pressure gets to be so great that Lina lies and says that she is engaged to a mystery man from America. When the family wants to meet this man, Lina of course knows she needs to find a man and quick! Yet she only need look in her own backyard to find her true love!
This book was cute and it was interesting to get the view of an Indian-American as the main character. Although I'm sure the pressure for marriage in India can become quite great, I also know that ingrain on their children to respect elders, so would this situation even ever occur in India? Nevertheless, what ensues is a fun look at an Indian dating in America. This was a quick read and it wasn't disappointing.
This book was a fun read. Lies have a habit of growing and growing and becoming a burden. This is what happens to Lina when she invents a fiancee. There are some times when Lina must become quite inventive in her lies. Lina really does try to find herself a fiancee by her own job in a matchmaking company. Throughout the book there are wonderful insights into the Indian-American culture.
Some of the descriptions of people searching out others are quite funny. Of course in true romance book style there is a prince to sweep her off her feet. Sent off today to daughterofcokie as part of the virtual bookbox!
