25 Jun Take 2 – Twice As Good!!
This is the first book by author Ruchi Singh and she deals with marital discord, divorce and second marriage! Quite a lot to take on in a first book but she has the knack to seamlessly write and sort the problems faced by the simple, pretty and homely Priya. Her husband Sameer is cheating on her after he has wasted all her inheritance. In fact she is the one who is keeping the house in order.
This book is truly a chance she took and I was very happy with a book full of real romance and faith. Even if it was not from the one Priya needed. Abhimanyu is her knight in shining armor and he is a true hero. Smart, successful and emotional, he is the complete package. A guy to drool over and wish for; if only we had more men like him around. He takes Priya under his wing and is her support system, her true anchor.
When she feels over whelmed he takes a step back, putting her happiness before his own. A gem of a man whose family is his support, which by the way is also very well etched by Ruchi. The parents, cousins and friends add a lot of depth to the story. I am sure Ruchi will have stories for a couple of them!
What I really enjoyed was the twist in the tale. The drama was not from the families but Abhimanyu’s office! The story gets a real life feel with the controversy, spite and plain old greed playing a big part. How the author managed to link all the people in this twist needs to be read.
I enjoyed the twists and turns, truly the path of true love is never easy. A well fleshed out book, with a lovely free flowing language. No errors that I could find glaring at me through the pages. It was indeed to cool to read a romance with substance and sound editing!
Do pick it for an uplifting read. 4 stars. * * * *

In the tussle between ethics, fears and desires… will Priya embrace a second chance at happiness?
