When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
| || |
In answer to your question, yes this is a kissing book. There is kissing. A. Lot. Of. Kissing.
From the moment that I laid eyes on the cover of Sandhya Menon's When Dimple Met Rishi, it was love at first sight. This image brilliantly captures the personality of Dimple and sets up the scene in which she and Rishi meet for the first time. It's an invitation to turn the page that is impossible to ignore.
As a side note, this cover would make a terrific #bookface prop. Anyone up for a stunning #bookfacefriday ?
Dimple is the quintessential techie nerd. Behind her ever-present spectacles is the face of one determined young lady. With high school behind her and plans of Stanford this fall, Dimple will summer at Insomnia Con, an app creation competition for teams of bright young minds from across the country.
Rishi's parents have encouraged him to attend Insomnia Con where he will meet the woman arranged to become his wife. He is ready to go and meet his destiny.
It is soon evident that these two lives, while appearing to be on alternate trajectories, may have more going for them than either had imagined.
The course of true love never did run smooth. Certainly not for this couple. They work through the expectations of their parents, their individual life goals, and possibility of a future together.
This romance is enhanced with Indian-American cultural richness. I loved the families, especially the aunties and the seamless inclusion of Hindi phrases, I adored Dimple with her mass of unruly dark curls and glasses that refused to stay on the bridge of her nose.
But somehow she had a feeling that love had found her.
