“The wickedly funny new novel from the bestselling author of CHAPATTI OR CHIPS? Kareena is understandably nervous on her wedding night, when she will make love to her husband for the first time - but at least she knows her parents have chosen well. Samir is goodlooking, gentle and considerate - and, although she's met him only a few times, Kareena is confident she will grow to love him. But Samir has a secret. A secret in the shapely form of Cloey whom he's been dating for the past six years. And Cloey isn't prepared to give up her man - or, more importantly, his bank balance without a fight. And she's prepared to fight very dirty indeed. But Kareena is not the timid little Indian bride Cloey had expected her to be. In fact, Cloey might just have met her match.
I love Asian fiction, and have rarely been disappointed. I'm also a fan of the chick-lit genre, so I thought this book would be right up my alley. Alas, no. Of the four main characters, I could only sympathise with Kareena. The rest range from duplicitous to downright evil. Maybe I wasn't in the right frame of mind to enjoy these wildly exaggerated characters. But when I reached the end of the book, I couldn't help thinking that I'd just wasted a few days of my life.
