Sister of the Bollywood Bride
Mini’s big sister, Vinnie, is getting married. Their mom passed away seven years ago and between Dad’s new start-up and Vinnie’s medical residency, there’s no one but Mini to plan the wedding. Dad raised her to know more about computers, calculus, and cars than desi weddings but from the moment Mini held the jewelry Mom left them, she wanted her sister to have the wedding Mom would’ve planned.
Now Mini has only two months to get it done and she’s not going to let anything distract her, not even the persistent, mysterious, and smoking-hot Vir Mirchandani. Flower garlands, decorations, music, even a white wedding horse — everything is in place.
That is, until a monster hurricane heads for Boston that could ruin everything. Will Mini come through as sister of the bride and save the day?

From Novl Nation
“The characters and subplots were heartwarming… There were laugh out loud moments and also moments that made you take a step back and feel for these characters. And if you’re anything like me, you’ll be googling Indian food by the time you’re finished reading.”

“I laughed through this book, cried, and sometimes I wanted to through it across the room. But if you loved a good summer/highschool romance, kinda dysfunctional family dynamics and a Bollywood wedding, this is the book for you!”

“Sister of the Bollywood Bride is a fun, quick story that would be an excellent summer reading selection! This book would be a great pick for fans of Sandhya Menon’s When Dimple Met Rishi and Morgan Matson’s Save the Date!”
