If books were dresses...

(a post where I create fashionable wear with book cover art)

Love in a Headscarf
by Shelina Zahra Janmohamed

Published: October 2010

Description from
When Shelina Janmohamed, an Oxford-educated Muslim living in the bubbling ethnic mix of North London, opted for the traditional “arranged” route to finding a partner, she never suspected it would be the journey of her life.

Through ten long years of matchmaking buxom aunties, countless mismatches, and outrageous dating disasters, Shelina discovers more about herself and her faith. Along the way, she learns that sometimes being true to her religion means challenging tradition, while readers learn much about Islam that may surprise them.

First spotted this book at Tales of Whimsy, check out Juju's review

and Juju says...
Buzz: She has been dubbed the Muslim Bridget Jones.
