Lillie Vale

Lillie Vale, upon discovering she could not be one of Santa’s elves or attend Hogwarts, decided to become a writer to create a little magic of her own. Enjoying the romantic and eerie in equal measure, she’s probably always writing a book where the main characters kiss or kill. Born in Mumbai, she has lived in many U.S. states, and now resides in an Indiana college town where the corn whispers and no one has a clue that she is actually the long-lost caps lock queen. Small Town Hearts is her debut novel.

Arya Khanna's Bollywood Moment (2024)
Arushi Avachat
"Part family drama, part good old high school antics, Avachat's debut affectionately portrays the conflict and love in Arya Khanna's Punjabi-American family coming to a head during the hubbub of planning her older sister's wedding, all while she tries to figure out if her competitive relationship with the student body president could be something more. A sweet, culturally rich story about first love, forgiveness, and realizing people aren't always what they seem."
Never Meant to Stay (2023)
Trisha Das
"Never Meant to Stay is a sumptuously layered feast for the senses - part fam-dram, part romance. Trisha Das portrays Indian family dynamics with thoughtful, tender care, especially the ways in which love gets tangled up with past hurts, romantic relationships, and familial and societal expectations. As much about belonging as it is falling in love, Never Meant to Stay follows Samara Mansingh, a transient Mary Poppins' esque heroine who (unlike Poppins herself) is very much meant to stay. Das writes the Khanna family with empathy and warmth, from their squabbles to the fierce way they claim Samara as one of their own. Das's Delhi setting bursts onto the page with vibrancy, with almost every chapter liberally sprinkled with dishes you'll salivate for. You'll gobble up this book."
One Christmas Morning (2023)
Rachel Greenlaw
"One Christmas Morning poignantly captures love in all its marvelous, messy, heartbreaking glory. Well balanced and compelling, equal importance is given to the love we have for ourselves and for others: family, friends, and partners. Readers at a crossroads of their own will find much to root for as Eva explores what she wants from her one and only precious life. A spellbinding journey of transformation that will break your heart and put it back together again."
