Mili Rathod hasn't seen her husband in twenty years--not since she was promised to him at the age of four. Yet marriage has allowed Mili a freedom rarely given to girls in her village. Her grandmother has even allowed her to leave India and study in America for eight months, all to make her the perfect modern wife. Which is exactly what Mili longs to be--if her husband would just come and claim her. Bollywood's favorite director, Samir Rathod, has come to Michigan to secure a divorce for his older brother. Persuading a naïve village girl to sign the papers should be easy for someone with Samir's tabloid-famous charm. But Mili is neither a fool nor a gold-digger. Open-hearted yet complex, she's trying to reconcile her independence with cherished traditions. And before he can stop himself, Samir is immersed in Mili's life--cooking her dal and rotis, escorting her to her roommate's elaborate Indian wedding, and wondering where his loyalties and happiness lie.

This was an entertaining love story. I especially enjoyed the descriptions of food in this book. It inspired me to seek out a restaurant where I could relish the flavors of India.

Charming story about being loyal to marriage vows, even if you haven't seen your groom for decades. Interesting insight into another culture -- and what America looks like to a foreign visitor.

Entertaining and silly and fun, just like a Bollywood movie in print. Family complications, forbidden but chaste love, drama and nonsense, all here.

A charming and sensual page-turner. I didn't want to leave these characters and hope there's a sequel!
