Synopsis

[Book 1 in the "Year of the Chick" series. There's a bit of a cliffhanger to end this book, but the sequel addresses any unanswered questions]

An awkward family homecoming at Christmas.

A humiliating public weigh-in, with two judging parents as the audience.

The announcement of a deadline for arranged marriage doom.

And that's just the first two chapters.

In "Year of the Chick," Romi Narindra must find love before her parents find her a husband (a seemingly absurd concept that's the norm in many cultures). 

To escape her fate, Romi wades through the waters of secret-dating, where self-consciousness is at an all-time high, and experience at an all-time low. It's the sort of thing that would turn almost anyone into a man-crazy freak with romance tunnel-vision, and that's exactly what happens to her. All the while, a lack of inspiration in her corporate job leads Romi to her love of writing, in what quickly becomes a man-quest play-by-play.

From whiskey-breath scum bags to uni-brow creeps and everything in between, Romi and her wingmen come up empty time after time. 

And that's when she meets a fellow writer. On the Internet.

So will it be arranged marriage doom, or an Internet affair that's not as creepy as "To Catch a Predator"? Time will tell in the "year of the chick," a twelve-month quest to find love.

Tick-tock.

Year of the Chick (Book 1 in the Year of the Chick series)
Average rating
3.5 / 5
A laugh out loud, fun read.
April 9th, 2015
Funny, yet heartfelt, this is a story about a 'relationship challenged' woman who needs to find a man she loves now before her parents intervene. Complicating things is her family, culture, friends, etc. A great read by a Canadian author with a crazy sense of humour!

Really good read. Starts off clichéd but settles after a while then enraptures you toward the end. Can't wait to read the next one :)
