                                    Book Review

 

Her Secret Husband by Sundari Venkatraman is a sweet fairy tale kind of story where a boy meet a girl then he/she falls in love with the opposite sex spontaneously etc….. story beings .

But  with  a twist  !.

Her Secret Husband by Sundari Venkatraman is a light read book .The emotions of all the characters in this book are ‘cool  ’ and ‘communicative’.

Ruma and Lakshman′s thinking are independent  so do watch their love story unfold in a unique way with the help of other characters like Ram and Meera.

I was first shocked when Lakshman proposing Ms Rumi  on second day of their meeting in style   .

Ram is an ideal son and  teaser when it comes to pulling the leg of his younger brothers .

Overall Her Secret Husband by Sundari Venkatraman  is one time nice read book .

How far can one truly go away from his/her ancestral roots, filial ties and the claustrophobic grip of traditions and the reminiscence of an emotionally fraught childhood and puberty? The book begins with this particular quest, and it is this quest which gains momentum as a woman seeks the essence of herself-identity ten thousand miles away from her Bengali hometown.
 
With the lens of a time-traveler, her narrative journey encompasses her first sexual abuse, her first tryst with death, austerity, the strangeness of rituals, the inexplicable feelings of puberty and also her surrendering to love, procreation, motherhood. In herself-chosen exile in the US, she discovers that deep within; her ancestral roots are also the wellspring of her psychological, spiritual existence. In the process, she keeps on oscillating between assimilating and disintegrating, which forms the core of her journey.

As Emily prepares to confess her feelings to Derek, something happens one night which changes her life forever. Five years later, Emily finds herself in Boston, alone and heartbroken. Will she ever be able to forget the past? And what will she find when she returns home… to the man she left behind?

Read an Excerpt:

Emily stepped back from him and shook her head. “Oh, you know damn well what I mean. You know what, Derek? I’m done having this conversation with you. I’m so done with this conversation and I’m so done with you,” Emily spat out angrily before brushing past him.

“Emily, wait,” Derek said, catching her by her arm. “Where are you going?”

Emily spun around and gave him a bitter look before looking down at his hand gripping her arm. “Leave my arm,” she said in a low yet threatening voice, “And why do you care where I’m going? It’s none of your business.”

Derek didn’t leave her arm in spite of her warning and said, “Em, you’ve had too many drinks. You can’t drive in this condition. I’ll drop you home.”

Emily jerked her arm free from his grasp and replied in a bitter voice, “Thank you, but no. I’m perfectly capable of getting myself home on my own. I don’t need you to drop me home. Do you get it, Derek Thorpe? I DON’T NEED YOU!” Emily yelled the last words, causing a few people to look their way.

 

About the Author:

Veronica Thatcher is an exciting new contemporary romance author. Ever since she was very young, she’s dreamed of becoming a doctor when she grew up. While still forging ahead with that, majoring in pre-med in college, she unwittingly stumbled upon a new dream—becoming a published author. Some may call her an introvert or a wallflower, but she has always found she could express herself better in written, rather than spoken, words. However, never in her wildest dreams had she envisioned she would pursue writing as a prospective career, not just a hobby. Her love for writing goes hand-in-hand with her love for a good romance novel—whether it be a feel-good, sweet romance or a dark, suspenseful one. When she’s not studying, reading, or writing, she is usually found blasting her favourite songs, sometimes singing and dancing along to them.  She dabbles in a number of activities, including painting, karate, singing and dancing. She is a huge chocoholic – probably the biggest – and she is an ice-cream junkie too. She considers herself technologically handicapped forever and has no shame in admitting that. She also deems chocolates her boyfriend, Patrick Dempsey the love of her life, and Friends her life!

Her first book, A Way Back Into Love, is slated for release in February 2017, and she hopes readers will enjoy it as much as she enjoyed writing it. You can reach Veronica through Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Wattpad and Gmail.

BOOK REVIEW OF WALK IN RAIN BY UDAI

 

A WALK IN THE RAIN
by 
Udai Yadla
 
 
 
Blurb
 
Love is elixir that keeps you alive. Love is poison that kills you. Unreciprocated love keeps you alive but kills every day.
 
Heartbroken Sunny lives a reclusive life, trapped in the past, living in his memories. He has no complaints about his life but refuses to embrace the present.
 
Saloni is a prostitute who is desperate to earn money by any means. She does not care about exploiting others to fulfill her purpose.
 
Fate unites the loner and the prostitute to embark on a life changing journey of retribution and self discovery.
 
Lovelorn Sunny turns misogynistic after Sandy, the only girl he loved walks away from his life, unannounced. He suffers painful solitude for almost two decades with the relentless haunting of her thoughts. A distressed friend Imran, vows to change his life forever. A surprise planned for his birthday turns into a tragedy that claims the life of his dear friend, triggering a series of unbelievable events. As Imran gets killed by a stranger, Sunny’s calm life suddenly turns into a turbulent storm. With nothing left to live for, vengeance becomes his ultimate mission. His reluctant alliance with a prostitute to trace the killer sets him onto a nerve racking adventure of life and death.
 
 
Both are bound to a common goal with different motives but destiny has its own motive. A walk in the rain is an intricate tale of intense emotions, driven by hair raising twists and turns.

            BOOK REVIEW :

Walk in the rain by Udai is yet another good book to read .It has all the components which   readers look out  for ..these days .
Udai has written the emotions of male protagonist and his search to find out the truth  behind the murder and heartily peace in a gripping way .
 
The story is written in rhythmic phase  from loss of love to finding the destined love with a murder twist in it .
Even though it is Udai′s debut novel  he has done justice  to his book.
 
The USP of this book is prostitute ..
 
I loved the ending in this book.Salute to this newbie author .
Udai has written this book in enthralling way with a subtle reminder that “People who are destined to be living  together will meet under any dare circumstances ”.

Book Review of Return to Earth (THE GALAXY SERIES #2) by Aithal

514k5yn8pul

The book Return to earth is part 2 version of the galaxy .
The author Aithal has penned each and everything that could happen in near future ,if we not heed to nature call or what it wants to tell by creating nature calamities like earthquakes …. in a conversational way .

The nature shows it’s wrath in its own style so stop being greedy ,selfish and destructive is what Aithal wants to convey through his book .

The description of mountains , dried rivers , communal wars which political parties play and powerful people greed will tear your heart into pieces .

It is a gut wrenching story written by wise person like Aithal .

The wise Aithal has given a geographic vision of “how life would be without goodness”.

Finally the emotions and reactions of the characters in this book are worth reading and it is royal pleasure to see expressions of shock ,guilty , happiness , hope and wary on their tired faces .

Om Bhadram Karnebhih Srunuyama Devah!
Bhadram Pasyemakshabhiryajatrah!
Sthirairangaistushtuvamsastanobhih!
Vyasema Devahitam Yadayuh!
Svasti Na Indro Vriddhasravah!
Svasti Nah Pusha Vishwavedah !
Svasti Nastarkshyo Arishtanemih!
Svasti No Brihaspatir Dadhatu!
Om Shantih, Shantih, Shantih!

O Gods! Let us hear auspicious words through our ears.
Let us see auspicious things through our eyes in the sacrifices.
Let us enjoy a life that is beneficial to Gods.
Let us praise the Gods with bodies having strong limbs.
Let Indra of ancient fame be propitious to us.
May the all-knowing Pusha be auspicious to us.
Let Garuda, who destroys evils, be favorably disposed towards us.
Let Brhaspati grant us welfare.
This Shanti (Peace) invocation appears in the Mundaka, Mandukya and Prasna Upanishads. This Peace Chant ends with the prayer for protection from the Tapatrayas (Threefold miseries) Adhyatmika (Body, Mind), Adhi Bhautika (Animals, other living Beings) and Adhi Daivika ( Natural calamities like Earthquake, Flood,Tsunami, etc.)
I think the author want us to understand this mantra . And hence he has release such a novel book .

Go grab this book and save our future from nature’s wrath .
This is my honest review .

                     Book Review 

P.G.Van  is a great writer who has penned some wonderful work .The Evil Twin  is one such work .The Evil Twin is one such work .Author has written this book in really a interesting without keeping any dull moment.

The Evil Twin by PG Van is a excellent book to read if your fan of hot romances …….She has portrayed Rey and Nandini ‘s emotions very well. What I found it odd whenever Nandini reads her fathers letter she cries a lot …that made me feel a bit difficult to gulp…
Bar scene is superb .

I love this book expect for one thing that annoyed me the most : is of Nandana being penned like a sick lump for entire family because people like Nandana are beautiful inside as well as outside .

I  wish people understand that……….


Whatever it is I like her work .
