July Book Club

Welcome book lovers! We are heading into our 7th book club pick of 2017 and it's been a pretty solid year for book club.  Jen and I have loved the collaboration that's taken place this year and I think it might be something we continue with from now on. About a week before the new month we usually ask each other if we have any ideas for book club. Jen came through this time with two solid choices, both of which I happened to already have on my book shelf. I've been waiting to pick up When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon since I got it, but I've been trying to make my way through a pile of library books so it was waiting patiently on my shelves. Book club gives me the prefect excuse to move it to the top of my reading list and with the long holiday weekend in the US, it's the perfect time for some summer reading! 

About the book

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.
