Title: When Dimple Met Rishi
Author: Sandhya Menon
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: May 30, 2017
Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?
Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.
The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?
Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.
I honestly picked up this book because it looked like so much fun! Also, I’m obsessed with the cover and how vibrant it is. I got this book because I was ready to change up genres and started getting into contemporary a bit more. Then there was the fact that everyone was raving about how downright hilarious this book was! Her next book is coming out soon so I guess i should probably read the first at some point….right?
Have you read this book? Is it on your TBR? Let me know in the comments!
