Chilliwack author to read from her cross-cultural romantic comedy novel at Sardis Library – Chilliwack Progress

A Chilliwack author reads a book for her debut novel at a local library later this month.

Lindsay Maple will read from (Not) Your Basic Love Story at the Sardes library on Tuesday, September 20.

It’s a cross-cultural romantic comedy set in Vancouver. As a resident of Chilliwack herself, Maple mixes her local environment with the highs and lows of a love of boating.

The story follows the romance between Becky and Dev: two opposites who find love amid cultural differences, lifestyles and interests. As their relationship develops, the couple discovers the importance of acceptance, compromise, and true love.

The novel is out on August 23, and copies will be available for purchase on the day of the event. The author reading at the Sardis Library goes from 6-7 p.m. on September 20.

About (Not) Your Basic Love Story:

Stubbornly independent Becky isn’t looking for love, but when sparks fly from a flight to Mexico, she learns her carefully planned life might be the opposite of what she needs. What starts out as a fun vacation with a sexy stranger turns into so much more. The problem? Dev and Becky couldn’t be more different. Back in Vancouver, their relationship grows and their two worlds collide.

Can a city girl who hates roommates on a diet of chicken nuggets and cheap wine make it work with a vegetarian, non-drinking Sikh man who lives with his exuberant multi-generational family in the suburbs?

As Becky navigates her way through a culture she knows nothing about, she faces one of the most important decisions of her life: to change her plans to how she had imagined her to be happily ever after, or walk away from love.
