After reading the title and blurb, I impulsively bought it from and read it over the weekend. I was expecting a well-written romantic comedy as mentioned by other reviewers. But I was rather disappointed by the repeatitive 'poo' jokes and poorly constructed cheap comedy which was bizarre to say the least. The story started like a usual chick-lit but unfolded in chapters as if various scenes/situations were lifted straight from a B-grade Bollywood movie, cliched and stereotypical. As the heroine [...]
I got to chapter three of this book before I had to stop because I knew that trudging through the next 300 or so pages just wasn't worth it.The problems with this book were noticeable from the very get-go - everything feels incredibly flat. The dialogue is not realistic. The writer doesn't even use contractions or colloquialisms. Not in the general prose. But definitely not in the dialogue. That is not how people talk! I honestly just could not look past this. It made the entire story flat. The [...]
When I get a book by this author, I prepare to laugh. And wouldn't you know it, the giggling commenced before I was off the first page. Her humor is the madcap style with an under layer of wit. This was her first contemporary and I confess that I enjoyed it more than her historicals. Maybe it was the background of West Meets East or the endearing persona of the heroine on her adventures of love and life with her favored Chai Latte in hand or maybe it was a bit of both and more. I began with an a [...]
I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.I have read all of Anya Wilde's previous books, all of which have been set in Regency England. This is a contemporary romance, but her characters are still just as quirky and charming in modern times!We first meet Tabby, an American living in England, curled up on a purple sofa, in the street, where her boyfriend of a year proposes to her. She accepts him, as she is fond of him, and the rest of the novel races away as Tabby learn [...]
Love Muffin And Chai LatteI absolutely adored this book! I couldn't put it down. I sneaked it (my phone) into my lap drawer at work and read bits when I could. I can't wait for the next one. The people were wonderful and I fell in love with them all. It was fun learning some of Indian culture and the various personalities. It was heartbreaking reading of the children and hoping there are really those who make the world better for them. ☺️
I really enjoyed this books and the fun cultural aspects it provided. The book begins in England but the majority of the story is set in India. Tabby is a lovable character who is easy to relate to, and I fell in love with Maya and the rest of Chris's family. Dev also brings some dark intrigue into the romance of it all.
Unrealized potential here - plot good, execution bad.
More farce than fun. 'Poo' jokes leave me cold. Not rating.
This was a fun little book spanning from America to India. Tabby was an eccentric girl caught up in her boyfriend's lust for money he could inherit from his grandfather if he married someone. Things were messy but they all worked out in the end.
Super story i really liked it a lot. though i took almost a year and a half to start on the copy and finish it
4.5/5 Stars (PureTextuality)First things first. Most of this book takes place in India. That’s for people that think this is the normal contemporary romance read. Thanks to Sophia at Delighted Reader blog for the recommendation, because to be honest the cover and title were not conducive to me buying or reading this book. And I am really glad I did!Tabitha is an American living in England and dating a rich Indian guy named Chris. When he proposes out of the blue-admittedly after a year of dati [...]
This is the tale of Tabitha (Tabby) who flees to England when her sister marries her (Tabby’s) fiancé. There, she meets Chris. Within a year of dating each other Chris proposes to her. She’s taken completely by surprise but agrees to marry him because, well because she’s been thrown out by her landlord, is jobless and of course because she quite likes Chris and he convinces her it wasn’t a ‘pity proposal’ at all, he was going to ask her anyway. Tabby is aware Chris is Indian but doe [...]
[3.75 Actual Rating]I enjoyed this so much more than I expected. The story was a bit over-dramatic and not very realistic, but it was charming and adorable. The character development was great and I really enjoyed the writing. I literally laughed out loud at some parts and I finished the book with a smile on my face :)
4.75 HILARIOUS STARS!!HOLY WOW! This book!! I don't even remember when was the last time I laughed so hard, so many times while reading a book!!!Every chapter was unique! I know I dragged this book too long! Maybe I didn't want the story to end? Lol.The best part is that I FORGOT TO TAKE NOTE AND MARK THE EXCERPTS WHICH I LOVED because I was so engrossed in the book!! When the book ended, I was like. Woah! I didn't mark anything! Maybe I'll have to re-read it?!Well, no qualms there!!I have to sa [...]
As romantic comedies go, I find it generally hard to make a book as funny as a movie. Funny books are usually better outside this genre. This book is no different, with some funny parts, but not laugh out loud, kind of slapstick. Having said that, it's a surprisingly well written story about a family travelling to India for wedding fun. Tabby doesn't love Chris, but agrees to marry him because he's nice and stable, rich and handsome. They get engaged and go to India for the patriarchal grandfath [...]
Cracker of a movieAnother gem of a book from the author. It is as good as her Regency romance. What I liked best is that, India is presented just as it is. It has begged no doubt but it also have rich people buying Ruby jewelry like they are potatoes. We have fake babaji s and genuinely warm hearted family members. The extended family shown is exactly what I grew up in. Can't wait to read her next book.
I thought the writer wrote well, but I almost put the book down because Chris seemed abusive and controlling and Tabby was so spineless that she was letting him do so. The book got good about halfway in, and of course the end was cheesy and unrealistic, but I'm still sorta happy about it. There were some grammar issues, particularly with quotation marks and em dashes, so that could be improved. Keep writing!
I bought this book on a whim, specially because of its name and without knowing much about the story or the author. And I’m sorry to say that I am disappointed. The characters are annoying, the whole Indian wedding sounded very much a foreigner view of the costumes and the the love triangle was boring. I had to push through to finish, and only got amused at some small parts of the book. Definitely was not my type of thing.
It started dull then picked up speed and interest, slowed down thereafter and ended in Bollywood movie fashion. But all in all I liked it. Dev was heroic beyond digestion. Being myself from agriculture background I was amused to find wheat and mustard in the monsoon season when tabby was observing it while reaching taaji recommend it for at least one time read.
I had been sceptical about reading this book initially but despite the ratings this has been a surprisingly good read. And although very 'bollywoody', it's quite fun. I love how Tabby's character has blossomed slowly into her best. And so glad that the better aspects of India have been written about rather than its usual quirks. Altogether it's been a jolly ride.
Kissing CousinThank you for this sweet and funny story about Tabby and her adventures in India. I loved the storyline and all the many characters. I thought the "aunties" were crazy and the situations Tabby got into were even crazier. I look forward to reading more of your work.
LoveI love, love, love this story! I want to read more about Tabby and Dev! I want Maya to find someone to love! I want Tabby to go back and reunite with her sister and her father! I want Tabby and Dev to have lots of kids just like them! I want Tabby to write wonderful kids books and funny travel stories!
Funny and heartfelt!!This book had me laughing out loud and at the same time enjoying the descriptive visuals of India! A must read if you like culture, romance, big families and love to laugh!
Hilarious! There is one part where I actually laughed out loud - not just a giggle - and I was on the train at the time. Oh my goodness, the looks I got. Totally worth it! I want to go to India now.but that's another story.
The storyline of falling in love was so naive and innocently visual that it aloud burst of laughing and giggling at/about the characters. I truly enjoyed this story Anya than you as this was a good pre summer read.
Loved it. LOL. Another Fav author on my reading list
RefreshingLoved the silly book. Funny, witty and a good read to cheer you up. Delightful read. Glad I decided to read it.
It was a laugh riot couldn't stop it after a page.
