Award-winning author Sonali Dev launches a new series about the Rajes, an immigrant Indian family descended from royalty, who have built their lives in San Francisco... It is a truth universally acknowledged that only in an overachieving Indian American family can a genius daughter be considered a black sheep. Dr. Trisha Raje is San Francisco's most acclaimed neurosurgeon. But that's not enough for the Rajes, her influential immigrant family who's achieved power by making its own non-negotiable rules: ·       Never trust an outsider ·       Never do anything to jeopardize your brother's political aspirations ·       And never, ever, defy your family Trisha is guilty of breaking all three rules. But now she has a chance to redeem herself. So long as she doesn't repeat old mistakes. Up-and-coming chef DJ Caine has known people like Trisha before, people who judge him by his rough beginnings and place pedigree above character. He needs the lucrative job the Rajes offer, but he values his pride too much to indulge Trisha's arrogance. And then he discovers that she's the only surgeon who can save his sister's life. As the two clash, their assumptions crumble like the spun sugar on one of DJ's stunning desserts. But before a future can be savored there's a past to be reckoned with... A family trying to build home in a new land. A man who has never felt at home anywhere. And a choice to be made between the two.  … (mais)

Having heard nothing but good things about this author, I requested a copy on NetGalley to give her a try. There’s been quite a few Pride & Prejudice retellings lately and I should have known based on my feelings on the original that I *might* be setting myself up for book failure.

Aaaaand that’s exactly what happened. I so very much wanted to like this book but every single character was awful in my opinion. 512 pages of terrible characters. Now, Dev’s writing is beautiful. She is an amazing author I think just based on her writing style and descriptions but I just could not handle the way these characters treated each other and overall, I never connected with the book.

I think if you liked the original Pride & Prejudice, you will have a better time with this story than I did. I hated those characters too and Austen’s writing IS NOT beautiful like Sonali Dev’s is. Sad to say I’m giving this a 2 out of 5 stars.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an advance copy ( )

Despite the male lead being named Darcy (though nicknamed DJ), the genders are reversed here and he is the Elizabeth character, while Trisha takes on Darcy. And Trisha is insufferable. It is an unfortunate commentary that conceit and social awkwardness is so much less palatable in a female character than a male character, and readers should analyze why they just can't stand her, but probably found Darcy the original sexy and charming. Unfortunately, due to neither Trisha nor DJ being particularly likeable, the book wasn't as much fun as I'd hoped. The only saving grace was DJ's passion for food (as a chef specializing in French cuisine with an Indian twist) and the paroxysms of joy felt by anyone who ate it. ( )

Good: flipping traditional gender roles; updating a classic. Bad: overly long and a little whiny. Overall: average/adequate read. ( )

Even if you don’t have a big boner for P&P/Austen retellings like I do, this is a great contemporary romance that should check the boxes for you hate-to-love fans out there (of which I’m one). I immediately loved the overall tone and light humor. DJ and Trisha are great characters – I totally felt for them and was also groaning when they were both being total assholes. But you could understand where their pride in their jobs and the people they’ve become came from and how that leads to their misunderstandings. So human! There’s a lady Wickham – a fun spin, I think – and the Wickham arc was modernized well (he’s a tough character to bring to the 21st century!) and convincingly. I only hated that Darcy went by DJ because I kept thinking of DJ as his title – I don’t know why, maybe I’m just an idiot. Anyway, this is one I’ll happily reread! ( )

A modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice that gender swaps the Elizabeth and Darcy roles, while also shifting it to an Indian immigrant family in San Francisco. Dr. Trisha Raje is a brilliant neurosurgeon with a less than brilliant bedside manner whose well-off family is in the midst of attempting to get her brother elected Governor. DJ Caine has come to California to provide for his sister, who is suffering from a brain tumour. At the same time, he is trying to establish his own catering business which infuses the Indian cuisine he grew up cooking with French Cordon-Bleu influences. Constantly thrown together with Trisha at both her brother's election functions and at the hospital where she's his sister's doctor, sparks fly but not necessarily the best kind.

I enjoyed this retelling and its shifting of both the gender and cultural contexts. However, this is not a light P&P retelling. There's a lot of heavy issues woven in here including racism, facing the prospect of disability, sexual assault, and fertility problems. The novel is well-written and compelling and Dev does some great things with the frame of the P&P narrative while crafting her own tale. I will note that there's a hint of magical realism that felt really out of place but it's a small part of the novel so don't let it detract you if the novel sounds of interest. ( )
