The Back of the Book: In a city where old is meeting new, daughters are surprising mothers, and love is breaking all the rules, tis cross-cultural debut novel introduces a young woman searching for independence and matrimony in a culture bound by tradition.
Between elegant soirees and the occasional mortifying mishap, Aisha Bhatia’s job as guest relations manager of New Delhi’s five-star Grand Orchid Hotel is intermittently fabulous. But despite a life filled with good friends and first-class travel accommodations, the fact that not many 29-year-old women in India are single – as Aisha’s mother never fails to remind her. Somewhere a clock is ticking, though as far as Aisha is concerned, it can be cheerfully dorwned out by laughter over a champagne brunch. Yet when the handsomely chiseled Karan Verma arrives from New York, Aisha experiences an unexpected attitude adjustment. Karan is everything she’s ever wanted … that is, if she actually knew what she wanted. Is it possible that she’s about to find out?
