For fans of Morgan Matson’s Save the Date comes a charming novel about one teen’s summer tackling disasters including, but not limited to, family, romance, and weather—as she plans her sister’s Bollywood-style Indian wedding.
Mini’s big sister, Vinnie, is getting married. Their mom passed away seven years ago and between Dad’s new start-up and Vinnie’s medical residency, there’s no one but Mini to plan the wedding. Dad raised her to know more about computers, calculus, and cars than desi weddings but from the moment Mini held the jewelry Mom left them, she wanted her sister to have the wedding Mom would’ve planned.
Now Mini has only two months to get it done and she’s not going to let anything distract her, not even the persistent, mysterious, and smoking-hot Vir Mirchandani. Flower garlands, decorations, music, even a white wedding horse—everything is in place.
That is, until a monster hurricane heads for Boston that could ruin everything. Will Mini come through as sister of the bride and save the day?
I so very much enjoyed the author’s previous book – Match Made in Mehendi (Read My Review) so I was seriously looking forward to getting lost in the cute and adorable book all about the Big Fat Indian Wedding!
Mini, a high schooler has just found out that her older sister will be getting married and while her father isn’t interested in the whole Big Fat Indian Wedding hoopla; once Mini finds that her late mother has actually saved up some jewellery for her daughter’s wedding – she know she needs to do everything right for her sister and for her mother’s memory.
Now, she knows that her father won’t be of help, her sister is too busy with her Medical Residency and she herself has no idea how to go about – so she turns to the only source she knows – the Aunties in her Indian Community.
Sister of the Bollywood Bride read exactly like it’s title – a whole lot of drama, familial loyalty and whole lot of shenanigans as well as an adorable meet cute romance to get your senses tingling!
