Indian-born Priya's marriage to Los-Angeles-dwelling Sanjay is arranged and she flies to CA to live with him, his parents, and his sister. As tradition dictates, she does all the cooking, cleaning, serving, and on top of this is told to go out and find a job. She begins as a receptionist for an entertainment magazine but is quickly promoted to journalist (unlikely but whatever). She has to keep her glamorous job a secret from disapproving in-laws while trying to improve her marriage to a handsome mummy's boy.

I enjoyed this one more than For Matrimonial Purposes by the same author. It was a fun read even if it was unrealistic. Priya adapts to a completely new country & culture (and a job that requires you to know everything about movies, magazines, and celebrity gossip) much too quickly, but she's a nice girl and I wanted her to find a way to be happy with her new life.
