The Kindle Korner and a Literary Kindle Treat...

The Sari Shop Widow
Pungent curry…sweet fried onions…incense…colorful beads…lush fabrics

In October Shobhan Bantwal will be a guest here at Chick with Books! It's going to be such a treat because I've been looking forward to reading her newest book, The Sari Shop Widow, and it's always nice to have the author visit... In the meantime, this past tuesday was the official release date of The Sari Shop Widow by Shobhan Bantwal and if you own a Kindle you are in for a treat!! Until August 31st you can download The Sari Shop Widow for FREE!

About the Book...
Shobhan Bantwal’s compelling new novel is set on the streets of Edison, New Jersey’s Little India, where a young businesswoman rediscovers the magic of love and family…

Since becoming a widow at age twenty-seven, Anjali Kapadia has devoted herself to transforming her parents' 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. But when 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…

So until Shobhan stops by here for a visit, and until I post my review, we all can enjoy reading this on our Kindles! Here's the LINK to The Sari Shop Widow by Shobhan Bantwal. Remember you only have until August 31st!

Happy Reading...
Suzanne

I wish I had a Kindle! I love that description: "pungent curry ... sweet fried onions ... incense ... colorful beads ... lush fabrics". It sounds like this is definitely a lovely read for the senses!

Ahhh... a Kindle... *drool*...

Suzanne said...

Hi Belle & Drey!
Don't despair! If you can wait until October, I'll be hosting a giveaway for a "turn the page" kind of book for The Sari Shop Widow!...

The Kindle is a dangerous accessory though for a bookish person- at the press of a button you can download a book! So easy to do... too easy to do sometimes! :D

Take care,
Suzanne

Beth said...

Suzanne said...

Hi Beth!
I'm glad you picked those 2 up! Always nice to get free books and both of these should be a great read!
Thanks again Park Avenue Princess for adding the James Patterson book for everyone!
