Dr. Trisha Raje is San Francisco’s most acclaimed neurosurgeon. But that’s not enough for the Rajes, her influential immigrant family who’s achieved power by making its own nonnegotiable rules: Never trust an outsider, never do anything to jeopardize your brother’s political aspirations, and never, ever, defy your family. Trisha is guilty of breaking all three rules. But now, she has a chance to redeem herself. So long as she doesn’t repeat old mistakes.

Sonali Dev undertook something quite difficult with this story, with a title linking it to the famous Jan Austin novel. I feel she did a brilliant job modernizing the tale while also tackling some pretty heavy issues with grace and subtlety.

I have to say I enjoyed every moment of it, Dev did an amazing job switching the Darcy character to the female lead while also drifting into the perspective of the Elizabeth character as a male.

The descriptions of the hunky DJ Kane were a bit much for a straight man to bear, but hey I know I am not the target audience. As a man, I enjoyed the main character and her quirks, as well as her strong and independent spirit.
