#685 : Love Marriage and Other Disasters by Shilpa Suraj : Character Interview

About the Book:

She believes in love, family and…squiggles!

Alisha Rana is not your typical single desi girl. For one, she is on the wrong side of 30.  For another, she is divorced. And last but definitely not least, she is still, gasp, a virgin!

Alisha doesn’t want much. But what she does want is that elusive thing all women search for – A man who gets her…but a man who gets her hot! She calls it “feeling the squiggle.”

Enter Dr. Vivaan Kapoor, cute, hot, squiggle-worthy. The younger brother of her cousin's prospective groom, he’s got the squiggle factor in spades. The only catch? He's never been married and is years younger than Alisha. Basically, completely off-limits.

And then there is Arjun. Widowed, older than her by the right number of years and a genuinely nice guy. He's Vivaan’s cousin and a so-called perfect match for Alisha. The problem is, Alisha’s squiggle-o-meter refuses to budge for him.

What will Alisha choose? A lifetime together with the 'right' man or a chance at happiness with the 'wrong' one?

Shilpa on the Web:

A quick chat with Protagonist Alisha here!

When and where were you happiest?
I’m happiest at home, surrounded by my family. It’s my safe space where I am truly able to be myself.

What is the quality you most like in a person?
Honesty. A relationship or life built on lies isn’t worth anything.

What is your greatest fear?
Losing control over my own life or finding myself helpless at the hands of another.

What is your greatest regret?
Not standing up for myself and not walking out on my first marriage sooner.

What is your motto?
Don’t let the prejudices and preconceived notions of others dictate your choices.
