The Accidental WifeThe Accidental Wife by Simi K. Rao
Adult Contemporary Romance

Paperback & ebook, 270 Pages
March 4th 2015

Some accidents are meant to happen…

Dr. Rihaan Mehta is a brilliant young neurosurgeon who has no inclination for love or marriage. According to him wives and girlfriends are annoying accessories that one can do without. But when his mother dangles the sword over his head in classic Bollywood style, he succumbs, and sets out in search of a bride who would fit his 'requirements'. But can Rihaan deal with what he gets instead?

Simi K. Rao was born and grew up in both northern and southern India before relocating to the U.S., where she has lived for several years. Inconvenient Relations is her first published novel.

The inspiration for this book, and her other projects, comes from her own experience with cross-cultural traditions, lifestyles and familial relationships, as well as stories and anecdotes collected from friends, family and acquaintances.

Rao enjoys exploring the dynamics of contemporary American culture blended with Indian customs and heritage to reflect the challenges and opportunities many Indian-American women face in real life.

Much of Rao's down time is devoted to creative pursuits, including writing fiction, poetry and photography. She is an avid traveler and has visited many locations around the world.

Okay, confession time! I'm Indian, and Indians probably will understand this book better than anyone else, because it's the culture we grow up in. The overbearing mother, the comparatively cooler father, the marriage that they're always talking about and the sibling that saves your ass no matter what...

It probably sounds similar to lots of American things, and in many ways, it is, but it many more ways, it's not (*winks to Indian Friends*)

And I'm not saying it's happened to me- the whole being forced to get married thing (yet) I'm only sixteen, but I know it will, and plus I've seen it happen countless times to my older cousins, so...

But, now, I must get to the book! The first chapter is extremely extremely weird, and I was a little put off, but then the book got SIMPLY BRILLIANT! Set it small town rural India, to a major Indian city to New York City- the culture shock, the atmosphere, the Hindi, the all Indian jokes, the absolutely swoon worthy Rihaan Metha, the storyline- everything!

It's like I can't describe it- but The Accidental Wife had me HOOKED! I loved how Naina and Rihaan slowly fell for each other, how things kept happening thatnmept them from being together, it was so realistic, how they let their pride get in the way of things, how they decided to stick to their stubborn ideals despite the obvious love and desire they were feeling! 

All I can say is- for an insight into Indian Society- READ THIS!
