Review - When Dimple Met Rishi

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

My Favorite Quotes/Lines:

“Strange things were happening in the pit of his stomach. Fun things.”

“Even his eyebrows looked embarrassed, somehow. Dimple felt a little bad for him. But not that bad, because he was the one who’d said it.”

“And then, once you’d been together awhile, bam. The gauzy lust-curtain fell away and you realized you’d married an alligator with bad breath.”

“The realization was alarming. Concerning. And not altogether unwelcome.”
“...but all he felt was this warm, almost gooey feeling in his chest. Like his heart was wrapped in microwaved Nutella.”

4 out of 5 gnomes

Dimple & Rishi is a pretty darn adorable book.  

When they first meet, they couldn't be any more different. Dimple is about as nontraditional as she can get and Rishi is all about tradition. Both characters are well written and will make you feel for them.

It gives you a look at tradition versus new and whether arranged marriage could work for them. There are some great characters and chemistry abounds.

The banter between Dimple and Rishi is very well done. It's a fun read for the most part as you get to know them and see their relationship grow. They slowly well as cliche as it sounds they find themselves.

The story gives a great look at culture and identity and the ending especially feels like a Rom Com movie. It's the kind of book that will just make you smile while reading it.
