Like many Kansans, I took ill this winter and faced a day at home recuperating. Fortunately, my husband had Sonali Dev’s “The Bollywood Bride” checked out on his Kindle, so I decided to give it a whirl. One day later, I was feeling better and needed another book to read.

In “The Bollywood Bride,” Dev effortlessly combines Indian culture with all the trappings of a great romance novel, captivating me with a book unlike any other romance novel I’d read before. While I loved the romance, I also enjoyed reading about a different culture, and, after finishing it, I was eager to widen my reading scope and find other diverse romance novel gems.
