ACCIDENTALLY ENGAGED by Farah Heron, read by Soneela Nankani

Soneela Nankani narrates Farah Heron’s delightful contemporary romance with her whole heart, drawing listeners in with her enthusiasm. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss her skill at embodying the main character, Reena Manji, who has a job she doesn’t love and anxieties about her meddling Indian Muslim family. When she bumps into her new across-the-hall neighbor Nadim Remtulla, she’s initially intrigued by his British accent and easy charm--and then appalled when she learns her parents have arranged their marriage! Nankani takes listeners on an emotional rollercoaster ride as Reena and Nadim navigate their growing attraction, a fake engagement scheme, a Canadian reality-TV cooking contest, and explosive family secrets. Read the full review of the audiobook on AudioFile’s website. Published by Hachette Audio.
