As I got further into the story, the writing appeared less choppy, the characters more likable. Conversations still appeared stiff, but then I realized people who spoke English as a second language probably wouldn’t use contractions – Which left Tabby and her best friend and I only noticed contraction’s when they were speaking to each other.
The story became more interesting until I had to know what happened, so obviously had to finish the book. I enjoyed the family interactions, and Tabby getting to know and love everyone. There were enough humorous times to lighten up the reading, but not enough to be ridiculous (ok, references to the poo ring got to be a bit much).
Although I didn’t find Love Muffin and Chai Latte as good a read as her regency romances, it was a good solid three stars and I’m glad I bought and read this book prior to beginning on book two, ‘Goodness Gracious Gracie’ which Ms. Wylde thoughtfully provided for an honest review, which will follow.
Tabitha is an American living in England and dating a rich Indian guy named Chris. When he proposes out of the blue-admittedly after a year of dating-she is pretty flabbergasted, but accepts. Not because she loves him, more because she doesn’t have anything else. Well she has a sister that married her fiance. And that was quite the blow to her self esteem, not to mention having a sibling that would do that to her. So Tabby finds herself on a whirlwind trip to India.
Tabby was a fun character, and actually grew a lot as a person throughout this read. At first I thought she was pretty stupid to accept a proposal without love, and as the story progressed she does realize it. Chris was just horrible in the end. He has his own agenda, and it’s pretty nefarious. Tabby meets another member of Chris’s huge family, a cousin by the name of Dev. Dev is everything good that Chris isn’t. She also is befriended by Maya, Chris’s sister. Maya is being railroaded into an arranged marriage. She is desperate to have her freedom, and it’s not long before Tabby is helping her figure out a way to get out of it. And Dev, Maya, and Tabby begin spending time together to that end. But another character would have to be all of Chris’s many colorful, and sometimes outspoken relatives. They were quite the group and you never knew who was going to say or do something funny from one minute to the next.
This book had me laughing from almost the first page and all the way through. It’s a romance of course, but I would characterize it more as a comedy than anything else. Tabby manages to get herself into so many situations that were out and out hilarious at times. There’s no sexual scenes and honestly I didn’t miss them. But what there is, is a wonderful story about an American girl, an Indian family that ends up loving her, and a man who falls in love with his cousin’s intended. The customs, the food, the beauty of India, all of that is in this read, as well. I really wish this book had a better cover and title for that matter, as people may just pass this book by thinking it’s not a good read, when that couldn’t be further than the truth.
The only reason I went with four stars instead of five is because it doesn't appear that the book was copy edited. There are several grammatical errors, some missing words, etc. Not enough to ruin the book, but more than an experienced editor should let slip through.
