    INVISIBLE LIVES is a sweet and sort of predictable read in that chick lit way but the Indian and paranormal twists make it good fun and add a uniue element to the predictable parts of the storyLakshmi is a powerful and memorable cha

I was so excited to hear about this author I love light and fluffy books with magical realism A book set in a sari shop by an ownvoices author sounded wonderfulLakshmi Sen is visited by the goddess Lakshmi in utero and given a gift of being able to know what people want She is also made incredibly beautiful but is warned to hide that beauty for reasons that aren t clear It is never really discussed after the first part of the story eitherShe co owns a sari shop with her mother She can tell what customers truly need when they come in She s developing a reputation for it That draws a Bollywood actress to the store for her wedding outfits But Lakshmi s gift disappears when she enters the store with her driverThis is the where the book started to lose me The driver Nick is the guy we are supposed to root for in the story But he doesn t seem to offer anything good to Lakshmi Just his presence is harming her She loses customers when he is around because she is unable to do her jobThere is colorism in this book An elderly customer comes in to the store and starts talking about how she uses skin lightening cream It could almost be dismissed as the fancy of a woman who is a ridiculous character but it isn t pointed out as such Then later a woman is being described as ugly and part of the description is how her skin is so dark Later the elderly woman from the shop is complimented and she says that the skin lightening cream is workingNick makes several casually racist comments to Lakshmi that aren t commented on He invites her to meet his family He says that his sister would love to try on saris because she likes ethnic clothes I was like Excuse me but nothing is mentioned about it in the story Then when he gets there his mother compliments Lakshmi by telling her that she looks so exotic Yeah Then he all but orders her to forget about her trip to India to meet the man her mother wants her to marry On the basis of what They barely know each other and she s supposed to give up all previous plans for him This guy seems like a control freak that she should get away from uicklyThe book never redeemed Nick for me It tried but he is still interfering with her work even though the book tried to spin it positivelyLet s count this one as an I read it so you don t have to book This review was originally posted on Based On A True Story

Omers from lonely immigrants to starry eyed young brides And to honor her father's dying wish she has agreed to marry a respectable Indian doctor who will uphold her family's traditions But when a famous Indian actress chooses Mystic Elegance to provide her wedding trousseau Lakshmi finds herself falling for the actress's sexy chauffeur all American Nick Dunbar and her powers seem to desert her just. Kind of interesting but lacked a believable romance I enjoyed the sari shop setting but I was really annoyed at how often characters were shrieking or screeching at each other Nick was a complete cipher of a person except for having a great family in contrast to her previous boyfriend s family who could never have accepted an Indian I found it odd that the sari shop was supposedly doing poorly yet they were able to travel back and forth to India with no apparent concern Many other jarring details that I could have forgiven in a better romance This one just failed in that regard

Summary Invisible Lives

As she needs them most As Nick draws Lakshmi into his world however new dreams awaken in her and she begins to uncover deeper startling longings in her mother her friends her fiance and even herself But choosing between Nick and her fiance seems an impossible task like intuiting the very nature of true love Is it instantly recognizable or does it need time to grow And how can she possibly know for su. I loved the mystical world and insight into Indian culture in this book
