#BookReview for Ayesha At Last by @UzmaWrites

Synopsis: A modern-day Muslim Pride and Prejudice for a new generation of love.

Ayesha Shamsi has a lot going on. Her dreams of being a poet have been set aside for a teaching job so she can pay off her debts to her wealthy uncle. She lives with her boisterous Muslim family and is always being reminded that her flighty younger cousin, Hafsa, is close to rejecting her one hundredth marriage proposal. Though Ayesha is lonely, she doesn't want an arranged marriage. Then she meets Khalid who is just as smart and handsome as he is conservative and judgmental. She is irritatingly attracted to someone who looks down on her choices and dresses like he belongs in the seventh century.

When a surprise engagement is announced between Khalid and Hafsa, Ayesha is torn between how she feels about the straightforward Khalid and the unsettling new gossip she hears about his family. Looking into the rumors, she finds she has to deal with not only what she discovers about Khalid, but also the truth she realizes about herself.
This title will be released on June 4, 2019.

My Review: Although I am not Muslim and know nothing of that culture I really enjoyed this 
Pride and Prejudice retelling.  This story was just so swoon worthy as well as full of the sweet feels. This book was like an open door into this culture and I felt like the author did am amazing job showing us so much of how they live their lives as well as the way they love.  I read this one in a night and then reread it. And I am not sorry that I did.  Very few books grabbed me the way this one did.  I can not wait to get my own copy of this one.
