Fiction. Literature. Romance. Humor (Fiction.) HTML:A delectable romantic comedy about a woman who fakes an engagement to the boy next door to enter a couples cooking contest??named one of the best romances of the year by NPR, USA Today, and Entertainment Weekly
/> When it comes to bread, Reena Manji knows exactly what she's doing. She treats her sourdough starters like (somewhat unruly) children. But when it comes to Reena's actual family??and their constant meddling in her life??well, that recipe always ends in disaster.
Now Reena's parents have found her yet another potential Good Muslim Husband. This one has the body of Captain America, a delicious British accent, and lives right across the hall. He's the perfect, mouthwatering temptation . . . and completely ruined by the unwelcome side dish of parental interference.
Reena refuses to marry anyone who works for her father. She won't be attracted to Nadim's sweet charm or gorgeous lopsided smile. That is, until the baking opportunity of a lifetime presents itself: a couples' cooking competition with the prize of her dreams. Reena will do anything to win??even asking Nadim to pretend they're engaged. But when it comes to love, baking your bread doesn't always mean you get to eat it too.

I loved this! Great banter, great characters, and I did not guess the ending. There are lots of cozy mystery series that revolve around food -- I've tried a few and haven't liked any of them. But I really liked the food stuff in this. It made me want to eat so much bread. ( )

*Do not read while hungry* You have been warned.
What a delightful book! It hit on all counts with representation, banter (OMG the banter!), and the glorious food. Romance tropes are awesome when done well and this had the “Fake engagement” one which is always quite delightful.

Reena feels so real with all her family- and self- expectations and I just adored seeing her forge new paths, shake off past failings and find her purpose. This might be a small thing, but I appreciated that she didn’t think Nadim was hot immediately she saw him (I mean ofc she noticed the buns ( )

3.5 stars. I thought this was a cute book. If you enjoy reading about arranged marriages this is for you. Even though the family has it arranged they want to live their own lives. However, when a couple cooking competition came up, they pretend they are engaged. ( )

This is such an entertaining and adorable read. Reena’s parents have set her up with Nadim. And it turns out they actually do hit it off as they pretend to be engaged for a TV cooking competition that’s only for families.

Of course that’s not the only secret they’re keeping but you’ll have to read this book to find out more.

I’d recommend you either be prepared with some Indian food or some delicious bread or both when you read this book. It made me hungry… ( )

Warning: If you are hungry, do not read this book.

However, it IS the perfect book to sit down at a small café, drink your coffee, and have a snack. The summary states that Reena treats her dough like they are real people, and that is no exaggeration. They have names and she gives them all her love and attention, ensuring they grow into the perfect loafs. Reena thinks she has every thing she "kneads", but her parents have other ideas for her needs - like a man. A living, breathing man.

And like all good parents, they have found her another perfect match - Nadim. The way Farah Heron describes him definitely left my mouth watering.

Luscious descriptions of bread, perfect for the carb-lover that I am. Captain America with a British accent? Let's just say I had zero problems getting through this one. As my first book from this author, I am chomping at the Boule for more. This one has the perfect DDT (desired dough temperature).

Okay, enough with the puns and bakery innuendos. Go to the bookstore. Buy this book. Read it. You'll thank me.
