The story starts on a sad note, but the change that is happening glues you to the book. The author has written the story with a lot of reality thrown in; It is a romance novel but has all the elements of a true story.
As a fellow army wife, I had picked up the book with a lot expectations and overall Aditi’s book does not disappoint. She has touched upon all the relevant and at times controversial topics that affect the life of an army wife. Glossed over them, actually but this was a love story first and an army story second. The gossip and conflicts like this happen in every group of friends, ladies kitty clubs or even in office politics. She has meshed them very well into the story that might as well have been a love story. Continue reading

Harlequin India is sure going through many changes – good ones. When I read WHMHS, the first thing that struck me was now the doors for many writers have opened up. How often I have heard writers crying out –‘who is an alpha hero?” “do such Heros really exist. For the cynic in me- a definite no and for the Romantic in me – Please lord, let this one wish of mine come true! Continue reading
I got the book for a review when I was a bit short of time especially for my reading. Nevertheless the book made time for it. It is a straightforward story of a lady, a professional who is trying to make sense of her life. Something we all can easily identify with. Either before or after turning 30 we all do start to think about what we want to achieve from our life and the goals we had set for ourselves. Continue reading
