The new novel from the bestselling author of The Zoya Factor and Battle for Bittora.
In a sprawling bungalow on New Delhi's posh Hailey Road, Justice Laxmi Narayan Thakur and his wife, Mamta, spend their days watching anxiously over their five beautiful (but troublesome) alphabetically named daughters. Anjini, married but an incorrigible flirt; Binodini, very worried about her children's hissa in the family property; Chandrakanta, who eloped with a foreigner on the eve of her wedding; Eshwari, who is just a little too popular at Modern School, Barakhamba Road; and the judge's favourite (though fathers shouldn t have favourites): the quietly fiery Debjani, champion of all the stray animals on Hailey Road, who reads the English news on DD and clashes constantly with crusading journalist Dylan Singh Shekhawat, he of shining professional credentials but tarnished personal reputation, crushingly dismissive of her state-sponsored propaganda , but always seeking her out with half-sarcastic, half-intrigued dark eyes.
Spot-on funny and toe-curlingly sexy, Those Pricey Thakur Girls is rom-com specialist Anuja Chauhan writing at her sparkling best.

Let me start with I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the many different characters and hearing a story take place in a culture I'm not familiar with. But I was over it in around hour 10. It became unfocused and I felt like the author was juggling to many narritives for one book...so I started to not care anymore about the entire story and I actually skipped a few parts . I hate skipping along a narrative to just end a book. I feel as though the authors editor should have reined it in and cut off about 3 hours .
Not just a chick flick read
This book is a great read with a clever and lively plot, endearing characters and beautifully written. Can’t wait to read the sequel.
