A Night In with

Sara Desai

Join author Sara Desai to celebrate the publication of her new book, The Dating Plan.

Daisy Patel is a software engineer who understands lists and logic better than bosses and boyfriends. With her life all planned out, and no interest in love, the one thing she can't give her family is the marriage they expect. Left with few options, she asks her childhood crush to be her decoy fiancé.

Liam Murphy is a venture capitalist with something to prove. When he learns that his inheritance is contingent on being married, he realises his best friend's little sister has the perfect solution to his problem. A marriage of convenience will get Daisy's matchmaking relatives off her back and fulfil the terms of his late grandfather's will. If only he hadn't broken her tender teenage heart nine years ago...

Sparks fly when Daisy and Liam go on a series of dates to legitimise their fake relationship. Too late, they realize that very little is convenient about their arrangement. History and chemistry aren't about to follow the rules of this engagement.

In conversation for this event, Sara will delve into this sumptuous and hilarious romance.

‘Outrageously funny, meltingly hot and tender, and wrapped up in heartwarming community, this book will warm you in the best ways. Daisy and Liam are just the kind of sexy joyful magic we need in the world right now’ – Sonali Dev, author of Recipe for Persuasion

‘A smart, sexy read. If you haven't done so already, prepare to mark Sara Desai as your new fave author!’ – Sanji Patel, author of The Trouble with Hating You
