Moti on the Water, an all-new sensational summer must read from New York Times bestselling author Leylah Attar is available now!
Meet Moti Ferreiraâ€”spectacularly jinxed from the day sheâ€™s born.
Saddled with an eccentric mother, she stumbles upon the one man who holds the key to her freedomâ€”the best man at her cousinâ€™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 doesnâ€™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 sheâ€™s not the only one falling under his spell. Everyone has a secret, growing round and ripe at Chef Alexâ€™s table. When the masks fall off, they spill out one by one, and everything blows up in their faces.
Now Motiâ€™s truth is exposed, and worse, sheâ€™s hooked on more than Alex’s midnight snacks. But this time, screwing up could be the best thing sheâ€™s ever doneâ€¦

It was as if the Greek gods had orchestrated a cosmic game, put me in the center of it, and placed bets on what I would do.This is who youâ€™re supposed to be with,said Zeus and Hera, holding up a marble bust of Nikos. These two head honchos of Greek mythology threw their son off the top of Mount Olympus because they didnâ€™t like the way he looked. You didnâ€™t want to incur their wrath. Aphrodite, Goddess of love, clapped her hands.Ah, but what you really wantto do right now is kiss Alex, donâ€™t you? You really have to watch this gal pal. It was her husband whoâ€™d been thrown off Mount Olympus, so if itâ€™s happily-ever-after that youâ€™re gunning for, proceed with caution. Always listen to your mother, Hestia piped in. She was the goddess of family and domesticity. She deserved a lot of kudos. Not many of the gods practiced what they preached, but Hestia stuck to her guns, and probably listened to her mother. Hence, she remained a virgin. Dionysus, the Greek deity of wine and ecstasy, raised his glass. Pffft. Eat, kiss, and be merry! Pirates once seized him, thinking he was too incapacitated to fight back. Dionysus filled their ship with vines and turned them into dolphins. Moral of the story? Donâ€™t mess with a Greek god even when heâ€™s drunk. Also, he gave the kind of advice you could really get on board with.

My Review: Three Thumbs Up ** spoiler alert ** Well, this is very different from Leylah Attar’s usual style of poetic writing, it’s a romantic comedy about an Indian woman’s wedding to a Greek tycoon son, on the Aegean coast. The comedies of errors start with the Maid of Honor, Moti Ferreira, cousin of the bride always getting into situations, clumsy with the ability to stick her foot in her mouth while coughing and tripping, not everyone is this talent. Moti’s mother Dolly, an eccentric woman, told her daughter that her soul mate is a man with three thumbs, this coming from a very wise old woman called Ma Anga who interpret Moti’s natal chart on the day she was born. The story starts and ends with laugh out loud scenarios that will keep you smiling, laughing, and shaking your head, while you read the very latest from the master Leylah Attar!
