The Sari Shop Widow

Since becoming a widow at age twenty-seven, Anjali Kapadia devoted herself to transforming her parent’s sari shop into a chic boutique, brimming with exquisite jewelry and clothing. Now, ten years later, it stands out like a proud maharani amid Edison’s bustling Little India…but when Anjali learns the shop is on the brink of bankruptcy, she feels her world unraveling. To the rescue comes Anjali’s wealthy, dictatorial Uncle Jeevan and his business partner, Rishi Shah --- a mysterious Londoner, complete with British accent, cool gray eyes, and skin so fair it makes it hard to believe he’s Indian. Rishi’s cool, foreign demeanor triggers distrust in Anjali and her mother. But for Anjali, he also stirs something else, a powerful attraction she hasn’t felt in a decade…and the feeling is mutual.

Love disappointed Anjali once before and she’s vowed to live without it --- though Rishi is slowly melting her resolve --- and as the shop regains its footing, gaining her trust. Then a secret from Rishi’s past is revealed, Anjali must turn to her family and her strong cultural upbringing to guide her in finding the truth.
