Desi Wedding Must-Haves: Drama. Food. Fashion. More Drama. More food. And, of course, nosy aunties and uncles
A family curse that turns spoken prophecy into truth.
A world where your soulmate’s feelings appear as words on your skin.
A boy who has to decide whether or not to attend his brother’s wedding even though their parents have forbidden it.
A girl who encounters the boy she loved and lost and realizes where her heart truly lies.
These genre-bending stories focus on the magic (and tension) of the biggest family gathering. Both award-winning and debut authors share stories of broken hearts, rekindled flames, unlikely romances, and one particular auntie who loves to meddle.
From jewel-toned kurtas, music and dancing, to the aromas of cardamom and sugar, one thing is for certain: It’s going to be an incredible season.
