Shari Jones needs to get a life. Preferably someone else's. Single, homeless and jobless, Indo-American Shari agrees to her best friend's whacky scheme: travel to Mumbai, pose as Amrita, and ditch the fiance her traditional Indian parents have chosen. Simple. Until she's mistaken for a famous Bollywood actress, stalked by a Lone Ranger wannabe, courted by an English lord, and busted by the blackmailing fiance. Life is less complicated in New York. Or so she thinks, until the entourage of crazies follows her to the Big Apple and that's when the fun really begins. Shari deals with a blossoming romance, an addiction to Indian food and her first movie role, while secretly craving another trip to the mystical land responsible for sparking her new lease on life. Returning to her Indian birthplace, she has an epiphany. Maybe the happily-ever-after of her dreams isn't so far away?

Nicola Marsh has weaved a truly magical read. I loved discovering the sights, sounds and tastes of India through the main character Shari's experiences as she discovered her roots - even if it was originally as a ruse to help her best friend get out of an arranged marriage! Shari's journey of rediscovering herself after a horrible-ending relationship and regaining trust in men, her self-doubt, fears and flirting are all so real. Amidst the backdrop of the colourful and evocative India that Nicola portrays so well, it is a spellbinding read. Enjoy!show more

BUSTED IN BOLLYWOOD by author Nicola Marsh is a sensational story releasing in December 2011. Shari Jones agrees to impersonate her best friend and travel to India to break-off Amrita's arranged engagement to Rakesh Rama. Going to a welcome party at the Rama's, she is called on her impersonation by Rakesh at first sight. He has seen the real Amrita's photo. Yet he wants Shari to continue the charade in exchange for fixing him a date with the real Amrita. Then there is the added tension of Rakesh's business partner, Drew Lansford, who also saw the file and thinks Shari is out to fleece business tycoon Rakesh by pretending to be his betrothed. Shari has fun at Drew's expense by keeping up the charade all the while drawn to his mersmerizing eyes and hot bod! And there's a stalker after Shari, taking her for a famous Bollywood star! After clearing up the misunderstanding, Shari and Drew get in to a fling when he visits New York. While Rakesh and Rita get into a cozy romance after the first sight! But what will happen when Rakesh's parents find out that Shari is not Rakesh's intended? And especially when they catch Shari in a clinch with Drew? And can Shari get the happy-ever-after with Drew as is her heart's desire? Opening up her heart and living with Drew back in Mumbai had restored her faith in herself. She felt herself healed from past betrayal by the vibrant country and the love of an incredible man. But can this love turn into something long-term? BUSTED IN BOLLYWOOD is an incredible inner journey of Shari as well as the trip to Mumbai and her growing love of India. Shari experiences the exotic Indian cuisine amid the dazzled and frazzled Mumbai, with its unique smell of diesel fumes, sandalwood and smoke from burning cow-patties! USA Bestselling Author Nicola Marsh's BUSTED IN BOLLYWOOD is truly a magical read. The witty banter and the flirting, the breathtaking romance, the spectacular emotional punch, and the believable conflict of how Indian families organize and interfere in any and everything had me flipping pages late into the night. The vivid atmospheric details amid the fast paced story kept me spell bound!show more
