Carole Bell's review
Sep 06, 2020
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. Some of the beats will feel really familiar— in particular the unwanted arranged or facilitated marriage that secretly becomes a steamy love match— but it’s well executed and there are some unique details. 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, and their passionate love of food.

You take a leap of faith. It’s not hard, you know, you just need to find someone who makes you chai when you are tired, and who rubs your feet when they are sore instead of insisting you are wearing the wrong shoes.”"
