Happy Wednesday, friends!

I hope you are all doing well and are being safe and healthy.
In today's WoW, I'm featuring a book that has two of my favorite tropes, fake engagement and foodie romance. Plus, it's a romance novel about brown people! I will never tire of reading books about desi characters. Farah's debut novel, The Chai Factor, was one of my favorite reads last year. I loved her voice so I have no doubt Accidentally Engaged will be a hit for me. 

Now take a look at how beautiful the cover is! I LOVE the color combination!

A delightful romantic comedy featuring a Muslim woman who fakes an engagement to the boy next door in the hopes of winning a couples cooking contest.

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.

Do you enjoy romance novels with a strong food focus?
