The Bride Test, by Helen Hoang

Khai believes he has no feelings after a combination of his autism and his odd reactions to grief lead him to that logical conclusion. He’s irritated when his mother brings Esme over from Vietnam to be his potential bride, and sets her up in his house. Esme is on a mission to make a new home for her family back in Vietnam. Neither of them expect things to go exactly as they do…

Honestly, I could just take 90% of what I said about The Kiss Quotient and repeat it here. This was a delightful book, a fun romance, with brilliantly-written characters and a handful of cultural and political topics (autism, immigration, classism) mixed in to give it depth. I loved every minute of it and can’t wait to see what Hoang writes next.
