The Bollywood Bride

“The modern Indian-American setting offers a glimpse of a rich culture . . . A bright, beautiful gem” from the bestselling author of A Bollywood Affair (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Ria Parkar is Bollywood's favorite Ice Princess—beautiful, poised, and scandal-proof—until one impulsive act threatens to expose her destructive past. Traveling home to Chicago for her cousin's wedding offers a chance to diffuse the coming media storm and find solace in family, food, and outsized celebrations that are like one of her vibrant movies come to life. But it also means confronting Vikram Jathar. Ria and Vikram spent childhood summers together, a world away from Ria's exclusive boarding school in Mumbai. Their friendship grew seamlessly into love—until Ria made a shattering decision. As far as Vikram is concerned, Ria sold her soul for stardom and it's taken him years to rebuild his life. But beneath his pent-up anger, their bond remains unchanged. And now, among those who know her best, Ria may find the courage to face the secrets she's been guarding for everyone else's benefit—and a chance to stop acting and start living. “Heartrendingly beautiful . . . [a] vivid depiction of two individuals, surrounded by the rich and engaging pageantry of evocative Indian culture, who struggle to reach each other despite past hurts.” —Fresh Fiction Praise for Sonali Dev's A Bollywood Affair “A fresh new voice.” —Susan Elizabeth Phillips, New York Times bestselling author “Deeply romantic and emotional, with characters I fell in love with . . . simply unputdownable.” —Nalini Singh, New York Times bestselling author “The characters are so richly drawn, the writing is utterly breathtaking.” —Kristan Higgins, New York Times bestselling author
