A busy doctor and a harried restaurateur hook up at their high school reunion.
Dinesh was the old, school prankster who always got into trouble. He liked to pull girls’ pigtails and stick pencils into their plaits. Once, he’d been playing football inside the classroom when he’d broken a girl’s glasses. Pooja had been wary of him ever since.
So, was being drunk on the day she met him also one of his pranks?
It served his ego right that Pooja had always ignored him in school. And yet, he'd had a thing for that nerdy studious girl in glasses.
So, what was she doing outside his room on that weekend of the class reunion?
Pooja is a busy pediatrician who works too hard to ever let her hair down.

Entrepreneur Chef Niraj (Niru) Karthik is in charge of catering for his best friend's wedding. He isn't looking forward to meeting his childhood crush—the one that got away—but he finds himself drawn to her again.
Shweta has only thought of Niru as her older brother's best friend, but now she’s falling head over heels in love with him. As both try to come to terms with their true feelings, they realize that a lot more than friendship is at stake.
And then, there’s Shweta’s family, mixed up in a dilemma: an overbearing father, an over-anxious mother, and three very disparate yet close siblings.
Will Shweta get the love and acceptance she yearns for? Or will upholding the family honour be more important?

"In the third of the Menon Women series, we meet an older Ria, Neha’s daughter and Shweta’s niece. She doesn’t care for boys, only books and Pom, but summer has other plans for her.
The narrative deftly weaves through the intricate lace of emotions that first love brings with it. As with the previous two novels in the series, Sudha Nair creates an all-too real summer of first love, plunging into its heart and soul. Ria’s narrative is layered with others, interweaving narratives making ‘About That Summer’ a light but delicious read. Kinda like a kaala-khatta popsicle." ~ Anu, 21 May 2019
