'Funny, vulnerable, and heart-warming. A beautiful story for the people who are still figuring life out' Hannah Grace, bestselling author of Icebreaker and Wildfire

Maya Mirza is so convinced she’s unlucky in love and life that she’s come up with a list of laws to explain it. Most importantly…

* Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

But that’s about to change. Maya’s headed to Pakistan for an arranged marriage with a handsome, successful doctor who ticks all the right boxes. First comes marriage, then comes love – she’s sure of it. Except…

*Trips are never smooth sailing.

From the start, Maya's journey is riddled with disaster, and the cynical lawyer seated next to her on the plane isn’t helping. Until a storm leaves them stranded in Switzerland, and she and Sarfaraz become unlikely travel companions. And maybe something more…

*When you think you’re lucky, think again.

Before long, Maya’s wondering whether she’s just experienced the ultimate in misfortune – finally meeting the right man a few days before she has to marry someone else.

'Just as sweet as the romance that blossoms between Maya and Sarfaraz is the satisfaction of watching Maya learn to prioritize her own desires.

Maya and Sarfaraz may have started on the wrong foot, but they quickly learn to rely on each other as they travel from Canada to Switzerland, and finally to Pakistan together. But what really shines in this book is Maya’s growth from a people pleaser who follows her family’s wishes, to finally following her heart and going after what she wants. A wonderful debut!'
