Would you let your grandmother play matchmaker?

*****

You can't choose who you fall for...but it helps if there's a list

When you're approaching thirty it's normal (if not incredibly annoying) for your family to ask when you'll tie the knot and settle down. But for Raina there's a whole community waiting for someone to make her a wife - and a loving grandmother, Nani, ready to play matchmaker with a comprehensive list of potential husbands.

Eager not to disappoint her family, Raina goes along with the plan but when the love of her life returns - ex-boyfriend Dev - she's forced to confront her true feelings. Now her 'clock is ticking', it's time for Raina to decide what she actually wants.

Will Raina let her family decide her future, or can she forge her own path?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Bright and vivid, and fresh and funny - I was utterly charmed by this insight into Raina's struggle to be the perfect Indian daughter. A delightful debut -- VERONICA HENRY, bestselling author of The Forever House
An absolute treat - I loved it. My senses were buzzing with delight as I read it -- MILLY JOHNSON, bestselling author of The Queen of Wishful Thinking
A perfect romance to lose yourself in * STYLIST *
Impossible to read without a huge smile on your face. A superior slice of romantic comedy -- Best Books To Read This August * RED *
A riotous odyssey into the pressures of cross-cultural modern dating that will chime with every 20-something singleton * ELLE *
A gorgeous summer read about the complications of balancing family, friends and love. It's warm and funny, cringeworthy and romantic, and above all wonderfully uplifting -- CRESSIDA MCLAUGHLIN, bestselling author of The Canal Boat Cafe
A delightfully different story of friendship, family and getting over heartbreak. It's fresh, funny and fabulously written - it had me hooked from the get-go -- ANNA BELL, bestselling author of The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart
THE ARRANGEMENT is a funny and moving exploration of modern love. Sonya Lalli's observations on being single while Indian and female certainly resonated with me, and reminded me of the challenges of balancing family pressures with my desire for independence in my twenties. I enjoyed meeting all the men on Nani's list, even the disastrous dates, because they reflected the hit or miss reality of the modern arranged marriage experience -- BALLI KAUR JASWAL, bestselling author of Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows
An Indian Bridget Jones, full of warmth and wit and so wise. What a fab book, I loved it -- LAURA KEMP, author of The Late Blossoming of Frankie Green
THE ARRANGEMENT is a funny and thoroughly enjoyable read. Sonya Lalli had me rooting for Raina as she faced the pressures of her family's expectation. It's an engaging and very entertaining debut -- EMILY KERR, author of Who Does He Think He Is?
Heartwarming and funny * WOMAN'S OWN *
