When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
May 30th – Goodreads
HOW ADORABLE IS THAT COVER?
I feel like I’ve mentioned this book a lot of times (though they’re never enough) so I will not repeat everything I have said and just say I NEED THIS BOOK and leave you with the synopsis, in case you still haven’t read it for some bizarre reason:
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.
What about you? What are you looking forward to reading? Have you heard about this book? Are you one of the lucky ones who have read it? If so, know that I’m very jealous!
