She craves independence, but is told in no uncertain terms by her traditional mother that the only way out of the family home is through marriage. She dates in secret, smokes in secret, does all the things a ‘good’ Indian girl from a respectable family is not supposed to do, while simultaneously meeting ‘pleasant’ men her parents try to fix her up with. Then again, how can she agree to an arranged marriage when her heart is set on someone else?Attractive, charming and wealthy, Raj is everything Amrita has ever dreamed of, and when he asks her out, she needs to pinch herself.
Unfortunately Mahi, her odious sister-in-law’s sister, is determined to sink her claws into Amrita’s man. Before long, Amrita wonders if she is fighting a losing battle. Although she turns down wedding proposals, she has no idea if Raj has any intention of marrying her.
And with everyone telling her she would be lucky to find anyone at all once she turns thirty, she doesn’t know if she can wait much longer to find out.Thrown into the mix are Amrita’s snarky sister-in-law, adorably whacky cousins, a lecherous ex-boyfriend, and a dangerously attractive ex-flame who keeps her on edge. As if she didn’t have enough to contend with, her thirtieth birthday looms ominously close. She was supposed to be married with two kids while juggling a super-successful career by now!
Neither job nor love-life seem to be going anywhere. How did everything go so horribly wrong?
