Rosewood A Midsummer Meet Cute gives you all the Bridgerrton vibes in a modern setting. Eila Das is the Shakespeare-loving, responsible and practical older sister whereas her younger sister Malika is more carefree and is a huge Jane Austen fan. Malika enters them into a contest to go to Rosewood Regency Camp and compete to be an extra on the hit show Rosewood. They get selected to join the camp and Eila agrees to attend thinking she will just go and watch over Malika, but the experience helps her learn and grow.

Rahul is the love interest of Eila and a member of the Regency camp. Besides being physically attracted to each other, Rahul and Eila had a strong intellectual attraction as well. While their love story was pretty predictable, I still found myself turning the page quickly to find out if I was right.

It's no surprise that the Regency era was not diverse. Eila points it out often in the story. Kudos to author Sayantani Dagupta for making sure that the cast of characters in this book are racially and LGBTQ-diverse.

I enjoyed reading the book because it was sprinkled with Shakespearean and Jane Austen quotes. The Regency vocabulary lists at the end of some chapters were helpful. While I knew most of the phrases, I learned some new ones as well.

Rosewood is a book for lovers of Jane Austen and Shakespeare who also like a pinch of Bridgerton thrown in.
