Hello friends and book lovers,

You may know by now that this blog is my personal author blog , as well as a book review blog.

I sometimes review books at my own leisure, when I get some free time. Also I review those books that I really want to give a review of.

Here is one such book that I have reviewed today.

Book title : WHERE THE SECRET LIES

Genre :  Fiction – Suspense , Thriller, Romance, Reincarnation

Author : Malika Gandhi

Amazon Kindle Store : http://www.amazon.com/Where-the-Secret-Lies-ebook/dp/B00BUOWFBC

My review : 5 out of 5 starsI recommend this Ebook for your kindle or reading on your IPad, tablets or other android devices

Review in detail : Author Malika Gandhi’s suspense/romantic fiction blended with a touch of historical fiction and contemporary Indian culture of the modern age, is a run away success for people who love to read such genres.

I loved every bit of the novel. There is suspense, there is thrill, there are chills, there is unpredictability, there is steamy passion of romance, there is action, there is a mystery, there is culture clash — all in all an impressive concoction of all the ready ingredients that one would like to get in a story which would make it a fast paced and enjoyable read.

For me, Where The Secret Lies was a wonderful read and it ran like a movie in my head. I don’t want to divulge much of the story here in the review.

The story focuses on two female lead protagonists and how their lives changed from living in the comfort zone to falling into an inferno of change, sudden shock and realizing that life would never be the same again. The first female lead — Anjali, is from the Indian independence era of 1947 when India was going through the extremely difficult, sorrowful and troubled days of partition, and the second lead — Arianna, is a second generation British-Indian teenager visiting her ancestral town in 2012.

When Arianna (the modern female lead) arrives at her cousin’s ancestral house (a Haveli) in Lucknow to participate in the great big Indian Wedding, she never expects what she’d face in the days leading up to the wedding. She has an experience of a life time, makes new friends and helps to unlock a mournful and dreadful secret that had plagued and haunted the Haveli for a very long time.
Their interesting and intriguing experiences have been deftly written and displayed before the readers’ eyes in separate chapters. These chapters move back and forth from the past (1947) into the future (2012). So, I had no trouble relating to the chapters as I was taken in an out of the past now and then through these interesting chapters.

The dialogues are simple and easy to understand. The author had expertly woven her vocabulary towards construction of simple sentences that show a stark difference in the throw of the dialect and thought process of people (second generation Indians) brought up in Britain and Indians in India.

However, it is heartening to see that no matter how far away from their roots the non resident Indians are, they always return to visit India at some point in their life, getting rejuvenated by their ancient culture and accepting both the cultures of their current country as well as their ancestral country.

All in all I give 5 out of 5 stars to this mesmerizing and thrilling story and congratulate the author for creating such a wonderful book for the readers!

 


Dear friends, who are visiting my blog today and in the coming days, you must be curious about the title of today’s Post.

Yes, it is about my latest book 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life. The book is out now at all Amazon Kindle Stores, and is scheduled to be a FREE BOOK in the coming weeks in July and August. You can know about the FREEBIE schedule in a few days from now at this blog.

The question which has raised many eyebrows  who are interested in reading this book is — What is so special about this book?

I would say — My current book 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life is a novella, a collection of 12 short stories . It is a work of fiction with a touch of adventure, drama and inspiration from life, with a little dash of supernatural element thrown in a few of the chapters. It is a collection of 12 short stories that would take you into the fictitious, yet an intriguing world of the characters each of whom have a special story to share with you. 12 people have their paths crossed with a common friend-the protagonist. Somehow they reveal a few secrets to her and their lives change forever. Do their lives change in a good way or a bad way? How is their common friend affected?

Each story brings in front of you a gradual unraveling of their characters and why they are so special to the protagonist. When you read the stories, I think you will realize the underlying message from each story, which have an amusing, and an interesting tale to tell. The book is a short read, and if you want to relax on a summer’s day, or on a weekend with a short, riveting read, try out 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life.
Now a few words about my favourite character in the book 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life: My most favourite character is the lead protagonist in this book, who is an ad manager and a freelancer named Anita Maher.

Anita is the common friend of the 12 characters who bump into her so suddenly, and their secrets begin to unravel gradually. Anita is always enthusiastic about a new find, she holds special moments close to her heart and is always in search for uniqueness and has a never give up attitude. A free-spirited person, she hates being tied down, and is ready to learn from the events taking place about her and exudes a mix of various emotions. I found her to be the perfect protagonist for my book.
The book is currently available in all the Kindle stores of Amazon. The book is enrolled in Amazon’s KDP Select for Free borrows by Amazon Prime members. The book  can also be read by anyone without a kindle, by downloading the free, kindle reading applications for PC, laptop or tablets-iPad etc.

A little poetry that flows through my mind, I have conjured up in this post exclusively for you dear friend–

ENJOY LIFE

_____________

Seasons come, seasons go,

Time flies by, yet it holds,

Memories of love, memories of friends,

Cherished and cajoled,

In its spectral folds;

Time spent, never returns…

Bitter-sweet memories,

From this kaleidoscope we learn–

Life is a journey, with

Twists and turns,

With joy and sorrow,

Laughter and fun.

Life seems empty,

Without friends and love,

Life seems bleak,

Without the ones we love,

So, care and share

Your joy and tears,

With your friends and peers,

With no fear.

For, our life is short,

Yet it is so endless,

‘Coz even after we’re long gone,

Life will just..move on…

Thanks for stopping by this post 🙂
