The Reluctant Matchmaker by Shobhan Bantwal: Spotlight and Review



The Reluctant Matchmaker

by

Shobhan Bantwal





My Thoughts:

I was intrigued by the blurb and couldn't wait to start this book. Unfortunately, issues with font made it hard for me to get into it, so I was unable to truly enjoy this story. Since it was a dnf for me, I'll let the blurb and video speak for itself.

Blurb:

In her thought-provoking, uplifting new novel, Shobhan Bantwal vividly blends the nuances of contemporary Indian-American culture with an unconventional romance...

It starts with a bizarre accident. Petite and successful Meena Shenoy's contented life turns upside down when she collides, literally, with her strikingly tall boss, Prajay Nayak, and suffers a nasty fall. But when she discovers that he's a bright, caring, family-oriented man, she's attracted to him. When he unexpectedly asks her to meet him in secret, she wonders whether he feels the same way about her. 

Meena walks into his office that evening with high romantic hopes. Imagine her shock when instead of declaring interest in her Prajay makes an astonishing request: He wants her to craft a personal ad that will help him find a suitable wife - a statuesque, sophisticated Indian-American woman who will complement his striking height.

Despite her feelings for Prajay and the complications of balancing work and her "marriage consultant" role, Meena can't refuse the assignment, or the generous fee attached to it. While she nurses her bruised heart, Meena comes to some surprising realizations about love, tradition, and the sacrifices she will—and won't—make to fight for the man she loves.

Thank you for sharing Margay.

I wanted to mention that the "font issues" were reading an advance PDF on a Kindle. I've had similar problems with some PDFs on Kindle.

The final Kindle version and the print versions are standard size print and easy to read :)

Margay,

Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog during my book tour. I appreciate the kind support. I'm sorry about the font, which sometimes does get distorted on kindle readers.
