Her heart fluttered when she heard the sound of the key turn in the lock. She quickly adjusted her maroon silk sari with the yellow border, the one that had caught his eye, and waited eagerly for his footsteps.

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven... Yes, exactly seven steps before he stopped, hesitated for a few moments, then removed his shoes one by one and arranged them neatly side by side on the shoe rack.

She smiled. He had been mindful of taking his shoes off every day now. "I am not used to it, but I will if you want me to. It's probably a good thing to do anyway."

As he settled down, he would pick up the TV remote and, without looking at her, would say in his smooth baritone, "So how did you spend your day, anything interesting?"

Shaan Ahuja found himself bowing to tradition and agreeing to an arranged marriage to the beautiful Ruhi Sharma. He went through the motions but had no intention of carrying through on his vows. His last foray into matters of the heart with an American girl had left him scarred and unwilling to try again. Thoroughly disillusioned and disgruntled he wasted no time in making his intentions clear to Ruhi on their wedding night. But, he was completely unprepared for what his new wife had in mind.

Review:
*copy provided by author/publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Incurable Insanity is a fun twist on the joys and woes of arranged marriage.

This was a fun story that took on a serious topic, that of a prearranged marriage. Many people have preconceived notions on prearranged marriage, including myself. It can seem cruel to force two strangers to get married but as in this story it can be something beautiful.

I loved the author’s take on the matter. It was a beautifully timed love story and I enjoyed it. I also loved the way the author interspersed the language throughout the story. It made me feel connected to the culture. I love cultural reads. They allow me to learn about a culture I wouldn't otherwise find out about.

It was a light read that would be great for fans of realistic fiction.

  1. It sounds interesting. As you say stories revolving around arranged marriages are usually negative. This make a nice change!
