Having loved Farah Heron's debut novel, The Chai Factor, I was very eager to pick up Accidentally Engaged. I was even more delighted to find out that the main character, Reena, is Amira's best friend from The Chai Factor. This is a book that explores love, culture, and cuisine within a South Asian community. It's rich and complex and doesn't shy away from showing both the ups and downs of growing up in the desi community. The story also has a cast of characters who are so normal and real and a r

I have a confession. I love food and romance but I don’t necessarily love foodie romance. Accidentally Engaged, however, was a joy to read.

Nadim and Reena fit for many reasons, not the least of which are their shared tensions and passions, the need to balance familial loyalty and rebellion, a ...more

Review copy courtesy of Edelweiss.

A somewhat unique romcom with an Indian couple who is simultaneously pretending to be engaged while involved in a cooking competition, while pretending to be friends to their families, who are trying to arrange a marriage. The book, as evidenced by the previous sentence, has a lot going on, and although I started out intrigued, it started to become very difficult to follow all of the complicated plot.

But when she could no longer keep the story arcs straight in her daydreams, she started writing a few years ago and never looked back.
