The review --
This is an interesting book, in that it has a somewhat different take on the usual romance formula, this being set in India and is an arranged marriage. The spelling in the book is UK spelling, and the quotes around dialogue are single quotes and not double quotes, as we are used to here in the US.
I must confess, I had a bit of a hard time getting into the book, as here in the US, arranged marriages are a thing of long, long ago. The relationship between the 2 main characters starts as a business deal, then morphs into lust, then migrates into love. It's a nice book, a nice casual read, that builds to a very satisfying conclusion.
