Helen Hoang was a household name for a bit when her book The Kiss Quotient was released. It was a BOTM best-seller and got amazing reviews from NPR, Goodreads, and Amazon, among others.
And she’s writing another book! The Kiss Quotient came out in June 2018 but here’s what we know about her new book so far!
It’s called The Bride Test and it’s set for release on May 7th, 2019. There’s another character with autism and an international love story and even a potential arranged marriage. The cover is so bright and gorgeous and I love the use of the plane as well.
Here’s the Amazon blurb:
Khai Diep has no feelings. Well, he feels irritation when people move his things or contentment when ledgers balance down to the penny, but not big, important emotions—like grief. And love. He thinks he’s defective. His family knows better—that his autism means he just processes emotions differently. When he steadfastly avoids relationships, his mother takes matters into her own hands and returns to Vietnam to find him the perfect bride.
As a mixed-race girl living in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City, Esme Tran has always felt out of place. When the opportunity arises to come to America and meet a potential husband, she can’t turn it down, thinking this could be the break her family needs. Seducing Khai, however, doesn’t go as planned. Esme’s lessons in love seem to be working…but only on herself. She’s hopelessly smitten with a man who’s convinced he can never return her affection.
With Esme’s time in the United States dwindling, Khai is forced to understand he’s been wrong all along. And there’s more than one way to love.
No, it’s not available on Edelweiss yet. I already checked.
How excited are you for Helen Hoang’s new book?
