Review: 

There is somethingn good about reading a general fiction with soothing family drama and a hint of romance which is not clouded with insatiable lust and chemistry. This book defines and redfines the same concept.

Built on a plot framed around family and morality, the story has been beautifully built with rich and engaging characters who not only add value to the flow of the story but also makes it hard to not get involved as readers. The simplicity of the plot line and potrayal of characters helps in making it an easy read. The theme of simplicty is echoed well into the overall package, i.e. The cover image and the title which definitely makes it an all rounder package.

What I loved the most about this book is the main plot and how the story has been evolved involving the characters and the readers equally; the mixture of romance, family drama, a bit of a mystery and a dash of humour definitely resulted in an explosive content.

My opinion: There is not on element that I hated about the book and I will definitely recommend it to all the bookaholics out there. A quick but more than enjoyable read.

My rating: 5 out of 5
