The Love Arrangement by Ruby Basu

Absolutely Charming

The Love Arrangement by Ruby Basu is an absolutely charming contemporary novel that will warm your heart and make you smile.

All the characters are wonderfully drawn and soon become your friends rather than characters in a book.

Love and friendship pervade the whole novel, enveloping the reader in wide arms.

Family is important. Our families want the best for us. We see that different children have different dreams. Our parents just want us to be happy and to live our best lives.

We follow a daughter who does not want to disappoint her parents. She creates the relationship she thinks they want to see in her. Lines soon blur between reality and illusion leaving a character confused as to what she really wants.

The whole novel was positively delightful. I thoroughly enjoyed it all. There was a wonderful light-hearted atmosphere that proved to be a fertile ground for love to bud and blossom.

I am sad that The Love Arrangement has ended. It is the perfect read to brighten a gloomy autumnal day.

I received a free copy from Rachel’s Random Resources for a blog tour. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.


The Love Arrangement

Love was never supposed to be part of the deal…

Independent and free-spirted Annika has no plans to settle down anytime soon… if only her parents felt the same way. But when her father unexpectedly falls ill, she’ll do anything to make things better. Even if it means suddenly blurting out she has a boyfriend.

The only issue is, he doesn’t exist.

Then, by chance, she bumps into handsome entrepreneur Rav, and she can’t believe her luck. He’s single, sworn off relationships and looking for a date to attend work events with. He’s the perfect solution to her troubles. Or is he?

Because there’s just one slight catch – he also happens to be her childhood nemesis.

It was only ever supposed to be a simple, temporary arrangement. Nothing more. Certainly love was never part of the terms and conditions. But Annika’s about to discover that some deals are made to be broken…
