Fall Winter Spring Summer
I'm also the author of Fall Winter Spring Summer, which will be published by Disney-Hyperion in fall 2022.
FALL: Ever-practical Nidhi never wanted to break any hearts. Everything was in place: a steady boyfriend and summer plans at an elite pastry school in Paris. Then a handsome construction worker and a longing for her homeland rattle her sense of complacency.
WINTER: A girl of (too?) many talents, Avani is finally focusing on one thing: planning a ball to honor a family member. But blizzards and cheese platters send her cross-country skiing straight into the arms of a boy—the one she’s been avoiding since she accidentally flaked on their date.
SPRING: Shy Sirisha wishes she could talk to girls, but she’s always felt safest hiding behind her camera. When a traveling theater troupe brings a pretty thespian into the picture, Sirisha flounders with bad pickup lines and too-pink lipstick.
SUMMER: Hopeless romantic Rani is ecstatic when not one, not two, but THREE potential boyfriends arrive at the inn. If only flowers and over-the-top romantic gestures could help her decide who to bring to the Songbird Inn’s event of the year.
Four sisters, four seasons…and plenty of breathtaking kisses in the Northwest drizzle.
