Helen Hoang's sophomore novel proves she's here to stay and a new auto-buy author for me. "The Bride Test" introduces us to Khai, an autistic businessman who doesn't think he can love until his mom convinces a Vietnamese woman with secrets, Esme, to come to the U.S. and win his heart (and maybe give her grandchildren).
