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.

I found it to be light hearted, sarcastic and witty. It was good enough to entice me to move on to purchase book 2.

This book is everything but boring, it is witty, funny, and cleverly written. I really don't have any negative criticism concerning the book, I had a good laugh with the protagonist, I was so drifted in the events I totally forgot about the real world. Great book, I blindly recommend it to EVERYONE !!!!!

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 :)
