Review: A Mantra for Miss Perfect (The Sood Family #3) Sapna Srinivasan

She has everything…except what she wants most.

Sahana Sood is beautiful, brilliant, and inches away from making junior partner at her downtown Seattle law firm. Ever the dutiful daughter, she’s lauded as Miss Perfect in her large Indian family and community. But Sahana is barely hiding her panic because, despite her best efforts and too many blind dates to count, she’s now thirty-two and has never come close to finding Mr. Perfect. Rumors are spreading—Sahana’s unlucky in love.

With marriage pressure mounting, Sahana buries herself in work. She’s confident she’ll close the acquisition deal for the Wilding Inn for her firm's major client, but hits a snag. The handsome owner Ryan Mehra refuses to sell. He doesn’t need the money, the inn is a testament to his late parents’ love and he’d rather continue their legacy.

Sahana heads to the historic inn determined to not lose this deal. But the sparks that fly when she meets Ryan, who just might be more stubborn and driven than she is, soon have her worrying that instead of landing her partnership, she might lose her heart.
My Review:

A beautifully written Indian American love story.

Lawyer, Sahana Sood, was raised in a traditional Indian family.  She has reached an age where she is constantly asked when she will marry and start a family.  Even with her busy work schedule, Sahana reluctantly agrees to start going on match dates that her mother has planned.  But it was another man who catches Sahana’s attention and she is afraid her mother won’t approve. 

Ryan Mehra, the owner of an inn that Sahana’s firm is trying to acquire, has taken control of the inn that his parents started when they were young.  He wants to continue their legacy and refuses to sell out.  His plan was for Sahana to spend the weekend at the inn to see why it is so important to him.  But it leads to more than just that.  Over that weekend, Ryan falls in love with Sahana.  And he will do anything he can to convince her that they should be together. 

I have read this series from the beginning and each book only gets better.  I love this family and just can’t get enough.  Though the author’s words, I can easily picture the big family gatherings, beautiful saris and lehengas, delicious Indian food and Bollywood dancing.  I highly recommend this book (and series) to anyone looking for something a little different from your every day romance books.
