Can't-Wait Wednesday: When Dimple Met Rishi

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme that focuses on the yet-to-be released books we're waiting for and is hosted by Wishful Endings. It's inspired by Waiting on Wednesday by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Today I'm highlighting a modern-day romantic comedy that focuses on arranged marriages!

Goodreads' summary:

Amber the Blonde Writer - Waiting on Wednesday - When Dimple Met Rishi
Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?

Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.

The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?

Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.

Why I'm Waiting:

I rarely pick up romantic comedies because they're usually the same stories or the same characters as the book I last finished. However, I find it enjoyable to read rom-coms involving places or people from other cultures because I'm learning as I read, and I have something to focus on besides the next fluff moment. Throw in my years as an Asian Studies minor in college in addition to my YA background, and this novel has me hooked.

What books are you waiting on?
