Waiting on Wednesday #1: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


Title: When Dimple Met Rishi

Author: Sandhya Menon

Publication Date: May 30, 2017

Chapters | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

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 can’t even begin to coherently explain how excited I am to have this book in my hands. I saw everyone talking about it on Twitter and decided to check it out on Goodreads. The minute I read the synopsis I was hooked and knew I needed to have this in my possession yesterday. The fact that I still have to wait another 3 months is excruciating. It sounds like the perfect mix of cute and funny romance, which is right up my alley.

Is this on your TBR as well? Have any suggestions of something similar to tide me over until then? Let me know in the comments below!
