Marvelous Maya #SavingMaya @KiranManral

Saving Maya

#SavingMaya is a book of our times, about our times. It will speak to the readers, both men and women on various levels. Maya is the quintessential woman of today. She is a working woman, a mom, and a divorcee. A single woman who puts more faith in her maid than her relatives. We all know why, don’t we? Since the tongues never stop tattling and the opinions never let up.

She is handling her son, the thankless ex-husband and the co-workers who are constantly looking for Maya to falter. On top of it all, she has a brooding, handsome neighbour who is idolized by the kids and her son.

This is a wonderful, sweet and practical love story of how Maya finds her second chance at love. She traverses the path of finding herself once again, finding her inner diva, winning at work and finding the right guy.

If you are a lover of romances, this one has some fine moments. The interaction between Maya and her best friend made me miss my best friend and our chats. Her mother, the formidable mom who is no-nonsense, gives Maya a tough time but that’s what mom’s do. Kiran has etched such realistic characters that I want to read more such romances by Kiran. All Aboard was another romance that I enjoyed and she has dabbled in many genres doing excellent work in them.


#SavingMaya is a fast, fun read and trust me, Maya doesn’t need saving, she is just saving her best for the right one 😉

    Interesting review and her portfolio looks impressive. I have only heard about her and not relaly delved into her writings so far. Your review has made me want to look up atkeast one of her books!

    Sounds like a good romance, Indy, something that relates to the present time and scenario.
    Would love to read a mature love story any day…not the teen-y, college romances for me!
