Liked the book. It is fast paced and flows nicely. This is the first book of this author's that I have read and must say I enjoyed it!

The premise is intriguing: NRI hotshot asks cute young employee to help him in his matrimonial quest, unaware that she's in love with him. Unfortunately, nothing elevates this above a Harlequin romance with Indian American characters. The heroine is a) cute and teeny, b) maddeningly indecisive, c) a career girl with a not especially intellectual job, and d) "liberated", yet with all the values desirable in a traditional wife, (great with kids, likes to cook, demure about sex). There are the requisite supportive girlfriends, intimidating rivals, and colorful family members. The hero is strong,(he's carrying her in his arms by the end of the first chapter), dynamic, brilliant, rich, has a great car and decorator...and boring as hell. I enjoyed some of the cultural details, but otherwise, nothing special. I much preferred _The Hindi-Bindi Club_, a far richer portrait of contemporary young Indian Americans.
