If Shakespeare Was an Auntie: Book 2
Publication Date: August 1, 2023
Bobbi Kaur is determined to plan a celebration to remember for her best friend’s wedding. But she has two problems that are getting in her way:
1. The egotistical, and irritatingly sexy, chef Benjamin “Bunty” Padda is supposed to help her with the menu since he’s the groom’s best friend, and
2. Someone is trying to sabotage the wedding.
With aspirations of taking over her family’s event planning business, Bobbi knows that one misstep in managing the Kareena Mann and Prem Verma (#Vermann) party, along with the other weddings on her plate, will only give her uncle another reason not to promote her. That means Kareena’s big day and Bobbi’s future career are on the line.
Bunty will do anything for his best friend, even though he has his hands full in finding a new location for his next restaurant while also playing mediator between his brother and father, the celebrated Naan King. When Prem asks Bunty to help with the wedding menu, he agrees, especially since it puts him in close proximity to the delicious Bobbi Kaur. When a mystery shaadi saboteur starts leaving threatening notes, and cancelling cake orders, Bunty and Bobbi have no choice but to call a truce and face the volatile attraction they have for each other.
Through masquerade fundraisers and a joint bachelor-bachelorette trip to Vegas, this chef and wedding planner explore their growing connection all while trying to plan a wedding at Messina Vineyards in a time crunch. But once the shaadi saboteur is caught and the wedding is over, will their love story have a happily ever after?
With the return of the meddling aunties (who are scary good at finding information) and a lot of hilarity and hijinks, Bobbi and Bunty’s romance is an event you don’t want to miss.
Planning a wedding for your best friend sounds like a dream come true…until you get paired with your worst nightmare.
Buckle up for a side-splitting adventure as wedding planner Bobbi Kaur (bestie of the bride) faces off against chef Benjamin Padda (bestie of the groom) in Tastes Like Shakkar.
Author Nisha Sharma dishes out plenty of sparks between the two, who got off to a bad start when Ben refused Bobbi’s arguments to turn one of his restaurants into a catering venue. Ten months later, they are stuck working together to deliver a memorable South Asian wedding for their friends.
When someone tries to sabotage the wedding plans, it is time to call in the aunties. It’s an action-packed adventure full of laughter that eventually brings Bobbi and Benjamin together.
Tastes Like Shakkar delivers another fun story full of memorable characters whose antics will leave you with a smile.
