Meet Rhea Kanwar - Thirty, unmarried and tending to fat. One morning Rhea realizes its time she did something about her life or shell turn into Bubbles Auntie, her moms best friend, who says things like, Im a recycled virgin. Bubbles Auntie also has to be invited to every family celebration, because she has no one.

So Rhea dives into the marriage market. Each time she meets a new guy, hes perfect, but then each guy has a weirder problem than the last. Vyash freaks out when he realizes Rhea isnt on the pill, Jay has a Kewl tattoo, Mazher might be too much of a gentleman and Sid is really, Really bad in bed, but practically perfect outside it. And then theres Arf, her best friend shes been in love with all this time. How is she going to choose? Awash in caricature and banter, Half Love Half Arranged debuts a voice that could well be the next Anuja Chauhan. 

About the Author
Itisha Peerbhoy continues to live in deep regret that she didnt become a zookeeper. However, being able to write this book has done a considerable amount of soothing, elating and pep-talking to her animal-poo-deprived nerves. She lives in Bangalore, travels to Bombay as often as she can to visit her childhood home and channels her inner Delhiite to any Southie who will listen. This is her first book and she is currently working on her next.
