Moti on the Water Kindle Edition
A Greek family. An Indian family. A summer wedding on the Aegean coast…
Meet Moti Ferreira—spectacularly jinxed from the day she’s born.
Saddled with an eccentric mother, she stumbles upon the one man who holds the key to her freedom—the best man at her cousin’s upcoming wedding.
All Moti has to do is overcome her fear of water, board a yacht to the Greek Isles, seduce the dreamy Nikos Manolas, and survive two weeks at sea with her oddball family.
The only obstacle Moti doesn’t see coming is Alexandros Veronis, the onboard chef and star witness to her awkward mishaps. He transforms onions into chocolate and aroma into nostalgia. Day by day, his alchemy works its magic on Moti. But she’s not the only one falling under his spell. Everyone has a secret, growing round and ripe at Chef Alex’s table. When the masks fall off, they spill out one by one, and everything blows up in their faces.
Now Moti’s truth is exposed, and worse, she’s hooked on more than Alex's midnight snacks. But this time, screwing up could be the best thing she’s ever done…

Chef Alex - what a guy! Gorgeous, patient, funny, and the man can cook. I was on team Alex all the way. A few more serious scenes towards the end, but overall a fairly light hearted read.
Poor Moti. Her life is definitely not carefree. Not only is her life driven by the prophecies of a clairvoyant her mother consulted at her birth, she is always expected to step up and help her family members. And if all that external pressure is not enough, Moti herself is somewhat awkward and clumsy, leading to some moments that are funny for readers but mortifying for Moti.
During the course of a holiday on a private yacht charter, we see the comical and outrageous actions of people forced to spend a length of time in proximity. And off to the side is Alex, the onboard chef whose meals are a revelation to Moti. She not only falls in love with the food, her attraction to Alex is immediate and somewhat inconvenient. He really is not what the clairvoyant foresaw... And if you’re worried about a love triangle, don’t be. It’s clear Alex and Moti only have eyes for each other.
Apart from Moti and Alex, Naani, Moti’s grandmother was my favourite character. She is the kind of grandmother with great wisdom that comes from experience. She is quiet for the most part, yet is not afraid to make her thoughts known when necessary.
Oh, and I have to mention the location! The Aegean coast and a number of Greek islands provide a gorgeous background. Attar does a great job in describing the surroundings and they play a part in this well told story.
There’s something for everyone in this book; romance, adventure, humour, and more. I highly recommend it.
A beautiful story about being seen and being brave and owning who you are. I'm late for work but it was so worth it!!!

Leylah Attar has sprinkled her magic all over these pages, and has proven once again that she is a master of her game. She is in a class of her own, and let me tell you, when her mind starts cooking up a story, we can rest assured that it will be an experience not to missed.
Attar has nailed the art of transporting her readers to far away places, and through her trademark prose, we are thrown into cultures and fascinating traditions that we would otherwise know little about, were it not for her exquisite stories.
You want to read something different? Meet Moti, our 24 year old, Indian-American heroine, who is torn between her obligations to her family and living her best life. Yes, this story is light and refreshing. It's laugh out loud funny in places, and the perfect summer read, but don't be fooled by the humour. Attar has weaved some very relatable and deep themes throughout the pages of this much anticipated novel.
We are whisked away on a super-yacht around the Cyclades - a group of Greek Islands in the Aegean Sea - where the author has nailed the Greek and Indian cultures to a T. The characters are very real and relatable, and you'll find yourself howling at some of the antics on board the Abigail Rose II. But amidst the laughter, your heart will fall in love with Moti, a quirky, clever, funny, clumsy, self-conscious young lady, whose mission in life is to please her mother.
Not only will you be overloaded with the sights of the mesmerising Cyclades, your senses will be exploding when Chef Alexandros, the on-board chef, is introduced. His food will take you on a culinary adventure, and your taste buds will be zinging and pinging with delight.
Can Chef Alex find a way to Moti's heart through her stomach, or will she remain loyal and steadfast in her quest to please her mother?
Moti On The Water is a hilarious and heartwarming story of family, loyalty, obligation, and finding yourself. I defy you not to fall in love with Moti, with the Greek isles, and with Alex and his magical powers that can transform onions into chocolate.
This is a summer read not to be missed!
Perfection once again from Leylah Attar.
