I don’t remember the last rom-com (romantic comedy) book I read. It was most likely something by Sophie Kinsella.
If you are a fan of Sophie’s work, diversity of say Kevin Kwan’s “Crazy Rich Asians”, then this is the book for you.
Daisy is an American Indian. She is an introverted questioner, who loves Marvel, maths, trivia, and is a computer programing nerd.
Liam is an Irish American. He is an extroverted Rebel, who has a troubled past, loves adventure, and doesn’t really stay in one spot. He was also Daisy’s brother (Sanjay’s) best friend.
It’s been ten years since Daisy has seen Liam.
She bumps into him at a work conference, at the exact moment that one of her Aunties is trying to set her up on a date (and lead to an arranged marriage). Daisy is simply not interested. Instead, she tells her Aunty that she is engaged, to Liam.
Thus begins their fake engagement.
It was by chance I found this book at our local library.
It’s a cute feel-good book with lovable characters, with many laugh-out-loud moments.
Side note: I borrowed this book not knowing that it was book 2 in a series. However it’s a complete standalone, and I didn’t feel like I was missing anything by not reading book 1 (which I’ve now added to my TBR pile).
