A few years ago, my dad introduced me to Bollywood movies and I became hooked on the razzle dazzle: the music, color, drama, theatrics, romance and the sheer spectacle.
At the time I thought ‘wouldn’t it be great to recreate some of that Bollywood magic in a book?’ And that’s how Shari, Amrita, Rakesh, Drew, Anjali and the entire cast of BUSTED IN BOLLYWOOD strutted into my mind, demanding their eclectic tale be told.
BUSTED IN BOLLYWOOD is a mix of contemporary romance/ romantic comedy/ chicklit/ women’s fiction. A bit like a Bollywood flick, it has a little of everything: secrets, intrigue, romance, self-discovery, deception and colour, loads of local colour including Bollylicious Indian food.
When I read, I love getting swept away in a vivid setting. What about you?
To be in the running to win an e-book of BUSTED IN BOLLYWOOD, share your favourite exotic setting here in the comments.
(I’ll be back to choose a winner in a week.)
In the meantime, I love chatting and you can find me:
Busted in Bollywood:
Shari Jones needs to get a life. Preferably someone else's.
Single, homeless and jobless, Indo-American Shari agrees to her best friend's whacky scheme: travel to Mumbai, pose as Amrita, ditch the fiancé her traditional Indian parents have chosen. Simple.
Until she's mistaken for a famous Bollywood actress, stalked by a Lone Ranger wannabe, courted by an English lord and busted by the blackmailing fiancé.
Life is less complicated in New York.
Or so she thinks, until the entourage of crazies follows her to the Big Apple and that's when the fun really begins.
Shari deals with a blossoming romance, an addiction to Indian food and her first movie role, while secretly craving another trip to the mystical land responsible for sparking her new lease on life. Returning to her Indian birthplace, she has an epiphany. Maybe the happily-ever-after of her dreams isn't so far away?
