Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors: A Novel (The Rajes Series #1) (Paperback)
Other Books in Series
This is book number 1 in the The Rajes Series series.
My favorite retelling! In this iteration of the classic tale, our Darcy character, DJ Caine, is a successful yet poor chef from England who has used all his savings to help his sister who has a terminal brain tumor. Dr. Trisha Raje is a neurosurgeon who is the only one who can save DJ’s sister. This is a gender bender telling! There is pride. There is prejudice, and there is DELICIOUS FOOD!— Becky
Award-winning author Sonali Dev launches a new series about the Rajes, an immigrant Indian family descended from royalty, who have built their lives in San Francisco...
It is a truth universally acknowledged that only in an overachieving Indian American family can a genius daughter be considered a black sheep.
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 non-negotiable 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.
Up-and-coming chef DJ Caine has known people like Trisha before, people who judge him by his rough beginnings and place pedigree above character. He needs the lucrative job the Rajes offer, but he values his pride too much to indulge Trisha’s arrogance. And then he discovers that she’s the only surgeon who can save his sister’s life.
As the two clash, their assumptions crumble like the spun sugar on one of DJ’s stunning desserts. But before a future can be savored there’s a past to be reckoned with...
A family trying to build home in a new land.
A man who has never felt at home anywhere.
And a choice to be made between the two.
