Accidentally Engaged kicks off with a fantastic "meet cute". Reena Manji, somewhat dutiful daughter, Bread Goddess, mother of Brian the Rye starter, and neighbor to Nadim. It's funny, crammed full of quotable quips, especially Reena's internal monologue, and just an all-around good time read. I mean, with a family like hers you need a sense of humor. If this isn't snatched up to be a Netflix or Hallmark movie I'll be surprised. This is going to be a runaway hit.
From the Cover...
A delightful romantic comedy featuring a Muslim woman who fakes an engagement to the boy next door in the hopes of winning a couples cooking contest.
When it comes to bread, Reena Manji knows exactly what she's doing. She treats her sourdough starters like (somewhat unruly) children. But when it comes to Reena's actual family—and their constant meddling in her life—well, that recipe always ends in disaster. Now Reena's parents have found her yet another potential Good Muslim Husband. This one has the body of Captain America, a delicious British accent, and lives right across the hall. He's the perfect, mouthwatering temptation . . . and completely ruined by the unwelcome side dish of parental interference. Reena refuses to marry anyone who works for her father. She won't be attracted to Nadim's sweet charm or gorgeous lopsided smile. That is, until the baking opportunity of a lifetime presents itself: a couples' cooking competition with the prize of her dreams. Reena will do anything to win—even asking Nadim to pretend they're engaged. But when it comes to love, baking your bread doesn't always mean you get to eat it too.
