Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon (spoiler-free)


Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?

Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.

The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?

Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oh my goodness! I loved this book! It was so, so, so adorable!😍

Dimple Shah is more interested in coding and creating a brilliant app than her parents idea of an arranged marriage. Dimple is thrilled when her parents agree to pay for her to attend a summer coding program, but what her parents neglect to tell her is that she will meet Rishi Patel there, the same boy who is set to marry her.

Rishi Patel is more traditional compared to Dimple. He is very respectful of his parents and his culture, so when his parents arrange for him to meet his future wife at the same summer program, he’s 100% on board.

Can I just say that I absolutely adored their first meeting! When Rishi says “Hello future wife, I can’t wait to get started on the rest of our lives.” Dimple throws her iced coffee in his face and runs away, not knowing who he was and it was just THE BEST!😂

After reading about so many Alpha male, badass book boyfriends (not that there is anything wrong with that!😉) it’s nice to read about someone like Rishi Patel for a change. He was just so respectful, caring and absolutely adorable! He was the sweetest little cinnamon roll!😍

I adored Rishi’s and Dimple’s relationship and how it was told in alternating POVS. I loved how they started off as friends and how they both made their intentions clear pretty much from the beginning. Also, it was so refreshing to read about two characters that felt so authentic and real. I will admit, the story was kinda predictable towards the end but it honestly just worked in this book!

So how much did I love this book? Let’s just say that i have now officially added Sandhya Menon to my author auto-buy list and already pre-ordered her next book From Twinkle, With Love…I’d say I loved When Dimple Met Rishi a lot.❤️abbie

  1. Loved this book review! It was short, had enough details and was simply perfect. I’ve been wanting to read this book for a long time now (just can’t seem to find the time) but after reading this post, I want to read it even more (does that make sense?). Anyway, great post and I’m so following you!
