Dear Librarians,

Men are drawn to Meena Shenoy's dainty looks, but she hasn't met someone who really intrigues her. Someone like her boss, Prajay Nayak. Just as Meena's thoughts turn to romance, Prajay makes an astonishing request. He wants her to craft an ad to help him find a suitable wife: a statuesque woman to complement his striking height.

Despite her attraction to Prajay and the complications of her "marriage consultant" role, Meena comes to surprising realizations about love, tradition, and the sacrifices she's willing to make for both. THE RELUCTANT MATCHMAKER vividly blends contemporary Indian-American culture with an unconventional romance.

This book follows the success of my five previous "Bollywood-in-a-Book" style novels. Publishers Weekly described my last book as, "A fascinating tale ... a window into an equally fascinating culture."
