From the fresh and unique voice of a young Indo-American author comes a hilariously brilliant debut novel that is Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Bend it Like Beckham and Monsoon Wedding. Readers will love this young Indo-American woman whose hip and trendy L.A. life gets complicated when her parents try to arrange a traditional marriage and she's hit with divine intervention of a most immediate nature...

From the Publisher:
A hip chick from Newport Beach, California, who's just turned thirty, discovered she's the incarnation of the Hindu goddess Kali, and happens to be unemployed and still living with her parents. Saving the world, though, may prove to be a curry-scented breeze compared to dealing with her extended Indian family. In their eyes she isn't just the black sheep -- she's low-grade mutton.

To make matters worse, despite frequent and therapeutic bouts of shopping and Starbucks, and the mentoring of a Taco Bell-loving, Coca Cola-guzzling swami, Maya has trouble just surviving, thanks to the attentions of a Kali-hating fanatic and a matchmaking aunt hell-bent on finding her a nice Indian boy. Maya has no interest in boys. She wants a man and she may have found one.

He's tall, dark, and gorgeous...and completely uninterested in her.

In the name of all that's holy and fashionable...what on Earth is a goddess to do?

About the Author:
Sonia Singh lives in Orange County, California, with her cat Kali Mata. When not writing books, she dances in front of the mirror in imitation of a belly-baring Bollywood babe.

Annotation:
A divine mission interferes with a young Indian woman's search for romance in this chick lit/fantasy novel. Against her will, Maya finds herself falling in love with Tahir, the man her matchmaking aunt has selected for her to marry. But her relationship with Tahir is hampered by two things: 1. He's more interested in her cousin Nadia than in Tahir, and 2. Maya is the human incarnation of the goddess Kali, and has to keep breaking dates to go defeat evil.
