'I specialise in hooking up American-born Indian women with their princes', admits twenty-nine-year-old Lina Ray. 'I have an uncanny ability to see connections between potential mates, like silvery threads.' But when it comes to her own life, this talented matchmaker hasn't seen any silvery threads since the tragic death of her fiance two years ago. And while Lina escapes the heartache by throwing herself into her work, her family seems driven to find her a husband. And so, while visiting India for her sister's wedding, Lina does the only thing she can do when confronted by persistent, pestering parents: she makes up a suitor. Explaining why the dashing international businessman who has won her heart never accompanies her to family gatherings leads to situations that are as uproarious as they are awkward. The charade takes an ironic turn when a real candidate - a strikingly handsome Indian prince named Raja Prasad - makes an impression on her at the wedding. And just when her elaborate lie is about to crash, Raja makes a surprise appearance in America. So begins a friendship that turns inexorably into a romance - one that forces Lina to come to terms with her Bengali heritage, her grief over her late fiance, and her hope to avoid a lonely future. Reminiscent of the films Monsoon Wedding and Bride and Prejudice, this beautifully written cross-cultural comedy marks the arrival of a sensational new talent.
