My Rating: 5/5

MY REVIEW: I have received a review copy of “Heart Quake” by Ishita Deshmukh in exchange for an honest review.

The story was particularly interesting to me as it is set in the aftermath of the earthquake that occurred in Gujarat in the year 2001. As I am a resident of Ahmedabad, our city too was badly affected by the earthquake and I can certainly relate to many of the scenes described in the book.

The main character in the story is Sonal Patel, a nurse. She arrives in Bhuj, Kutch, i.e. the city that was the epicentre of the earthquake, in order to volunteer at a medical camp that has been set up to help the victims of the quake. Sonal also has a personal agenda, she is looking for her best friend, who resided in Bhuj and whose fate is not known.

Sonal faces a difficult set of conditions in the medical camp but she certainly doesn’t expect to meet her old love, Dr. Tejas Desai, with whom she parted ways with bitterly, ten years ago.

Sonal is thinking about moving on in life with another man, when she meets Tejas again and discovers that she still has feelings for him.

At the same time, there is another plot going on in the story regarding adulterated medicines and patients dying mysteriously. This only serves to make the story more interesting!

All the characters in the story are portrayed very well and the reader will keep turning the pages to find out if Sonal and Tejas are able to rekindle their love.

“Heart Quake” is a very interesting romance. I definitely recommend it to everyone!

BOOK REVIEW: LOVE OF MY LIFE

Author: Rohit Sharma

Genre: Romance Fiction

Published by: Brosis Publishers

Number of pages: 274 pages

My Rating: 4/5

MY REVIEW: The author Rohit Sharma provided me with a copy of his book in exchange for an honest review.

The story begins with a lawyer Vaishnavi Pandit waiting to meet a convict in Tihar Prison. The convict is none other than ex-Major Virat Singh Rajput, an army hero, who has confessed to his crimes.

Vaishnavi is on a mission to help Virat, mainly because she is desperate to win this case. But she also feels that Virat is innocent of the crimes that he is accused of. She convinces Virat to tell her about his romance with Pratishtha, i.e. the love of his life.

The story is told mainly in flashback, about how Virat and Pratishtha fall in love and get engaged. At the same time, Virat being in the National Security Guard (NSG) plays a heroic role in the Mumbai attacks of November 2008.

Pratishtha is recovering from a break-up with a rich playboy called Kabir but realises Virat’s worth and reciprocates his love. After they get engaged, the future seems to be extremely rosy. But when Virat returns from a mission to Guwahati, he is told that Pratishtha has disappeared.

The police treat Pratishtha’s case with indifference so Virat takes it upon himself to track down and give justice to Pratishtha’s kidnappers.

The character of Virat Singh Rajput is finely drawn as a heroic and loyal army officer and his loyalty and love for Pratishtha are really touching.

There is also a mysterious benefactor who keeps urging Vaishnavi to help Virat by proving his innocence in court.

The story ends with a thrilling criminal trial. Does Vaishnavi succeed in freeing Virat? What happened to Pratishtha? To get the answers, you must read the book, “Love of My Life.”

The story is definitely gripping and worth a read.

The book is available on Amazon.

Author: Neha Sharma

Genre: Romance Fiction

Published by:

Number of pages: 263 pages

My Rating: 4/5

MY REVIEW: The author Neha Sharma was kind enough to send me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed reading this book as it beautifully depicts the problems faced by young women in India today when they have to go through an arranged marriage.

Avni is a young woman living in Delhi, who loves her work and her independence. She is pressured by her parents to “meet” this great guy from Norway, Ansh.

Avni meets Ansh and finds him nice enough but at first she is unable to have romantic feelings about him. However, she does get engaged to him and all the engagement and wedding planning starts to take place. Still, Avni is afraid of losing her independence.

Every person in India can relate to the descriptions given about the chaos that takes place whenever there is a family function.

Does Avni finally marry Ansh? Is she able to overcome her fears and commit to him? As I cannot give away the plot, everyone will have to read the book to find out.

I recommend this book to readers as it is a realistic and relatable story. The book “Wedding Pickle” can be ordered on Amazon.
