Book Review: Saved in Sri Lanka by Devika Fernando

25060288

 

The heroine of Saved in Sri Lanka, Devika Fernando’s latest romance book, is named Sepalika which is Sri Lankan for the Night Flowering Jasmine or Shiuli (which is the name of my website, in case you didn’t notice :P)What better reason to pick up the book then, right? So pick it up I did, and let me tell you that I’m not disappointed at all.

Sepalika turned out to be a feisty woman, courageous enough to pursue a career as a tourist guide due to her interest in the country’s rich history, when most women would be too busy thinking of their complexion. I almost wished she had retorted to her fiancé when he suggested she apply sunscreen and wear a hat “so she doesn’t become too dark” like the other Sri Lankans. Yet I admire her spunk, her willingness to look for a happier future.

Daniel on the other hand, has been portrayed as a history-loving, long-legged Irishman with “polished cheekbones you can cut yourself on”. What draws Sepalika most to him is his Irish accent though, and their common love for world history. Somehow, reading through the first few chapters, I almost wished that I would get a glimpse of some redeemable quality in Daniel and so would Sepalika. When he gave me a glimpse of his chivalrous nature or the mischievous glint in his eye, I was already 5 chapters in, and till then I just had the Irish accent to make do with.

Mahesh, somehow, always felt like a looming shadow. We knew he was there but not quite, his thinking and ideology straight from the dark ages. I’m so relieved that he got what was coming! 😀

The chemistry between Sepalika and Daniel was sizzling yet tender. But will it be a love story against all odds, especially since Sepalika is keeping a secret from Daniel? What happens when Daniel finds out? Well, I’m certainly not telling, am I? 😛

I followed Sepalika as a guide as she travels with her tourists from Colombo to Kandy, Sigiriya to Nuwara Eliya and beyond. The scenic beauty is ethereal making Sri Lanka the topmost destination on my travel bucket list. The vivid descriptions of Sigiriya frescoes or 100 foot Buddha statue in The Golden Temple of Dambulla, the information about Uda Rata Natum and the Vannam dance forms, the local sights and smell and cuisine are enough to entice a traveler. It’s clear that Fernando knows her country of residence inside out and loves it, for the love spills onto her words and made me love Sri Lanka too.

Kudos, Devika, for writing such a sweet yet steamy romance.

The Author’s Thoughts
‘Sixteen and counting’ are the number of cities that I have lived in so far. I like to think of myself as a ‘Metronaut’. The myriad city cultures, the food, the hustle and bustle, the people are all elements of life that I thrive on and if you can have an ‘Astronaut’ why not a ‘Metronaut’ after all there are so many more of us out there?
I believe in the Zen tenet that every situation has a 1000 truths. It helps me write and it definitely helps when I am dealing with my two children. I like reading, I like cooking, I like travelling and I love sitting like a mindless zombie in front of the TV and if anybody says anything to that….Aha! a 1000 truths come in very handy.
I also write under a pen name M.X Steele. Why? My daughter thought Adiana Ray was too boring a name.
I do hope you enjoy reading all my work because I believe passionately that though we writers love pontificating and are totally in love with whatever we write; at the end of it all it is the readers that matter and above all what we write has to be ‘entertaining’.

Book Review and Author Interview – Trouble Has A New Name by Adite Banerjie

 

Trouble Has A New Name 
by Adite Banerjie
 

 

Review: 

Dumping someone over a text message? I was already rooting for our sensitive yet gutsy heroine Rayna Dutt and planning to kill Sid on the first page. Adite Banerjie has a knack of doing this very well – making a reader build relationships with the characters from the very beginning. All the characters feel so real, so believable with some gray shades apparent in them. Life-like. Whether it be gutsy-yet-an-emotional-wreck Rayna, Kind-yet-commitment-phobic Neel or the infuriating-yet-sweet Agra Aunty! Would love to hear the story behind AA’s name, Adite!

Emerald Island took my breath away. So did the villas accompanying the Nirvana. The star-spangled sky and the silvery beaches, the orchids colouring up the white-and-gold wedding decor, the author has made the Andaman Islands come real in front of me. And to think she has never visited the island herself! She’s a hell of a researcher and a magician with her words.

The thing that moved me most about the book though were the emotions packed in 187 pages. Never a dull moment in this book. Right from page 1 where Rayna has to run to catch her flight till the epilogue (especially the epilogue :D), I have been on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Sometimes laughing at the verbal sparring between Rayna and Neel, sometimes rolling on the floor at Agra aunty’s antics, sometimes with butterflies in my stomach as Neel touches Rayna so and sometimes my heart breaking along with Rayna’s, this book made me live a thousand emotions in a span of 4 hours. Yes, that’s how long it took me to read it from cover-to-cover!

I had a chance to chat up with Adite Banerjie after reading ‘Trouble’ and here’s the conversation:

 

Me:  Your books are always so well edited. Never a dull moment. How many revisions do you put your MS through?

Adite: Thanks Dola for that huge compliment. I write in burst of three to four chapters at a time. I keep tweaking and editing them as I go along. Once I get feedback from the editor, it goes through another round of editing. I don’t believe in doing complete rewrites of the full book as it is too daunting. But rather, write three new chapters, go back and revise the earlier ones and then tweak the ones that follow and so on. It might sound a bit crazy…but  that’s the way I work! 🙂

Me: How did you come up with such an interesting title for your book?

Adite: The credit for the title goes to the Harlequin Team. We were throwing around words like Trouble, Paradise Island and Wedding but it all sounded so ho-hum. And then the Marketing Team suggested Trouble Has a New Name. And it was just perfect!

Me: Which character did you have the most fun writing?

Adite: It has to be Agra Aunty. She is loud, generally irritating and very conservative but has a fun side to her as well. I had enormous fun writing the “Sangeet” scene and the Truth or Dare game scene in which AA plays a stellar role. 🙂

Me:  Are you planning to stick to the romance genre? Do you feel that since writing in this category is considered ‘mush’, it is looked down upon?

Adite: I have two more books to finish for Harlequin — and both are M&Bs. So naturally they will be romance. I haven’t planned anything after that. As for romance being considered mush, that is sadly true…Frankly, I enjoy reading romances as much as any other genre. So I don’t feel any qualms about writing them.

Me: Please tell us about your next writing project(s).

Adite: I am currently working on Book 3, a romantic-thriller set in London, Delhi and Rajasthan. The working title is No Safe Zone. Book 4 will be another rom-com and in it I plan to tell the story of Chris and Milee (who have been introduced in Trouble Has a New Name).
It was fun answering your questions, Dola. Thank you for hosting me on your site!  🙂

Thank you, Adite for answering my questions on such short notice for my readers. You’re a darling!

I recommend this book to all romance lovers. Believe me, you’ll thank me for it later! 😀

The Author’s Thoughts

 

Even as a kid, she absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as Sundari grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end. Soon, into her teens, she switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine.
 
Her imagination took flight and she always lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years. Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! She could never string two sentences together. While her spoken English had always been excellent – thanks to her Grandpa – she could not write to save her life. She was bad at writing essays in both school and college. Later, when it was time to teach her kids, she could manage everything from Science to Mathematics and History & Geography.
 
When it came to writing compositions, her kids found her of no help at all. All this changed suddenly one fine day in the year 2000. She had just quit her job at a school’s office and did not know what to do with her life. She was saturated with simply reading books. That’s when she got home one evening after her walk and took some sheets of paper and began writing. It was like watching a movie that was running in her head – all those years of visualising Indian heroes and heroines needed an outlet and had to be put into words. That’s how her first novel, The Malhotra Bride, took shape.
 
While she felt discouraged when publishing did not happen, it was her husband who kept encouraging her not to give up. There was no looking back after that. While publishing took a long time happening, Sundari continued to write novels and then short stories. Her luck turned when Indireads approached her to write for them and Double Jeopardy was born.
 
Now it’s all about self-publishing her books on Amazon. She has published The Malhotra Bride (2nd Edition) and Meghna so far while planning to publish her fourth book – The Runaway Bridegroom –  in September 2014.

Book Review – Butterfly Season by Natasha Ahmed

ButterflySeason

Blurb: On her first holiday in six years, Rumi is expecting to relax and unwind. But when she is set up by her long-time friend, she doesn’t shy away from the possibilities. Ahad, a charming, independent, self-made man, captures her imagination, drawing her away from her disapproving sister, Juveria.

Faced with sizzling chemistry and a meeting of the minds, Ahad and Rumi find themselves deep in a relationship that moves forward with growing intensity. But as her desire for the self-assured Ahad grows, Rumi struggles with a decision that will impact the rest of her life.

Confronted by her scandalized sister, a forbidding uncle and a society that frowns on pre-marital intimacy, Rumi has to decide whether to shed her middle-class sensibilities, turning her back on her family, or return to her secluded existence as an unmarried woman in Pakistan.

We follow Rumi from rainy London to a sweltering Karachi, as she tries to take control of her own destiny.

Review: Do Pakistani women think (and maybe act) like Indian women when it comes to love or are they different? What do the contemporary Pakistani women feel about pre-marital intimacy? These were just some of the questions that came to my mind when I read the blurb of Butterfly Season. Of course I wanted to know whether our sisters from across the border were really so different from us as sometimes we are led to believe. I’m glad I picked up the book because now I feel that Pakistan and India are not so different after all, at least not where we women are concerned.

Rumi and Ahad, the main characters, are easy to fall in love with. Their romance is fun and frothy & they share a great sexual chemistry. I was relieved that Ahmed didn’t fall in the trap of keeping sex-scenes in the book just to get high sales (as is the case nowadays) since so many books I read that try to talk about a woman’s choices/perspective do. Mahira comes across as a great friend, a friend everyone needs in his/her life, a strong pillar of support. Juveria, though easy to dislike, reminds me of so many women that try to guide all their actions and words according to norms set up by the society in order to please it, but turn up making their lives miserable. Ahmed has been able to create a great mix of characters, all taken from our contemporary society. The men folk needed a bit more work IMHO but the female characters all came out strong.

I liked the little glimpses the author has shown of contemporary Pakistan what with Urdu words strewn in, references to the pop culture, the Junoon-Vital signs debate etc. The author has used beautiful language in Butterfly season for example – “…Love and marriage are not synonymous. Every Pakistani girl knows that already.” There are many such ‘quotable quotes’ strewn across the book. I do wish Ahmed had delved a little deeper into Karachi, which was such an intrinsic part of Rumi. I wished to experience the city through its many colors, smells and sights but I felt something missing. I did identify with the heat though coming from Punjab myself.

Butterfly season is a quick read, hardly a hundred pages long and has some great thought provoking moments. I congratulate the author on talking about such a taboo topic like pre-marital sex and not come up as preachy or condescending. I thoroughly enjoyed Ahmed’s debut novella and would recommend it to Romance lovers all over the world. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars 🙂

 

 

 

Book Review – Scarlet Revenge by Ann McGinnis

 

Scarlet Revenge by Ann McGinnis



The Blurb
 
The FBI doesn’t know what to do with Analyst Caycee Scarlet. She’s brash, brilliant & brutally relentless when tracking a serial killer. But she also has a temper, problems with authority figures and recognizing the chain of command. Things go sideways for Caycee when she uncovers a lead that saves the Omega Killer’s latest victim. Rather than working the system and making nice with her pompous boss, sparks fly and she gets into an altercation with the lead Special Agent on the case, resulting in a transfer to another assignment. Caycee finds herself transferred to an FBI interrogation facility where she assesses the most dangerous of criminals in custody. She struggles to get over the loss of her dream job, but her new boss, handsome Special Agent Gil Graham, may soften the blow. Sparks, of a different variety, fly between the Special Agent and his new Analyst, as they work together to crack the most difficult cases. Just when Caycee’s wounds are healing from her expulsion on the Omega Killer team, she is dragged back into the thick of it. Caycee and her new team are front and center, focused on an interview of a bombing suspect, when Omega comes looking for revenge. His attack wounds her team, leaving Caycee with only one option for help-the devastatingly handsome bombing suspect. It will take all of Caycee’s wits, and a kiss for luck, to stop Omega and save her co-workers.

Review

Scarlet Revenge is the first story in a series of FBI Analyst Caycee Scarlet. I am normally skeptical about picking up the first novel of a series till the time the other books aren’t out but I’m glad I picked this up. This story has a sense of closure, it doesn’t leave too many questions unanswered while keeping the reader interested to read the second book as well. So many authors aren’t able to pull off sequels correctly and I congratulate Ann on doing a fantastic job at this.
Caycee as well as her boss-cum-love interest, Gil, are both likable and relatable characters since both of them possess positive as well as negative shades just like normal human beings. I loved Caycee’s spunk and found it charming that Gil supported her, sometimes even taking a backseat. How many heroes do that, really? The Omega Killer Jeffery, The baseball Bomber Hicks & Ex-Boss Wilkes are the other important characters in this novella. The author has done an excellent job with sketching the characters of Hicks as well as Wilkes whereas I wanted something more from the author regarding The Omega Killer since he was the Main antagonist in this story. I believe he needed a li’l more attention. His methods, his background or why he became what he did was never really discussed. In a serial killer thriller, I would expect these things as a reader. Hicks character, on the other hand, was strong and compelling and I’m glad that there will be more of him in the sequel Scarlet’s Envy. I’m certainly looking forward to it. At the end of the story, Caycee sees someone that looks like Hicks get away from the premises and doesn’t do anything. This is the only point which felt jarring to me since I had made an opinion about Caycee being an upright FBI officer. It made me question her dedication to her profession. Not sure if this concern will be handled in the sequel but I certainly hope so.
I recommend Scarlet Revenge to all Romantic Thriller lovers. I would rate it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Book Review – Reach For Your Light by Ces Creatively

Paranormal Romance
   

My Review :

 

Paranormal Romance is one of my favourite genres to read in and that’s the reason I picked up this book. I was disappointed. Clearly, this book is a romance disguising as a Paranormal. In fact, the paranormal factor just appears every 5-6 chapters that also for a paragraph or two in the form of some golden light or a blurry shape. Not much to keep me interested.

More than the paranormal factor though, the biggest disappointment was the grammar and punctuation. I had to mentally correct all the your/you’re, should of/should have as well as put in periods and commas because the sentences read as a teenager’s text messages as I read the book. This definitely hampered my flow while reading and I had problems finishing the book. Since this book was provided by the author in exchange of an honest review, I was obligated to finish reading it. Otherwise I might not have been able to.

The book has a cliffhanger at the end which is always considered good for a series however in this case IMHO not a correct place to end the story because there are just too many questions left unanswered and there is a definite lack of any sense of closure. Normally in a series there is a main plot point and a few sub-plots. Those sub plots are resolved however the main plot is left as a cliffhanger, so that the reader buys the next book. However in this story even the sub-plots are left hanging in the middle.

Another problem I had with this book are the main characters Emma and Jeremy. I had trouble liking both of them. There are other characters in this book though that were perfectly likable and intriguing however, sadly, they were not the protagonists like Denni etc. Emma, while in London, falls for Nic who likes it rough. So much so that she almost begs him to have her. Heartbroken, when she moves from London and meets Jeremy, suddenly she forgets everything about her supposedly broken heart and falls for him. Under Emma’s circumstances (considering the reason for her heartbreak) this sounds impossible. Again, she is hopelessly in love with Jeremy but whenever she feels the presence of her angel (or even sees his car) she feels attracted towards him! Same with Jeremy. He supposedly loves Emma but can never take out a few seconds from his busy schedule to even reply to her texts or return a call. He loves Emma but can’t keep his hands off Mel, his ex. Even though the author has given him a very good reason to pursue Mel, I don’t think it’s enough to kiss her, especially when he was the one to bring up fidelity (and was hurt for so many years due to the lack of it). It’s one thing to create a flawed character but these were unlikable! Finally, the Emma’s angel just mysteriously appears at the end of the book and carries her away when so far he had been pictured as just some light, or a fleeting reflection or at max, his car.

I wish the author will take care of these issues in the next edition of the book.

 

Blurb:

Emma Williams is searching for a new direction. Leaving behind a dead end career and harrowing relationship in London, she makes a fresh start in Bournemouth bonding immediately with flat mate Denzil and enjoying coastal life. 

 

Falling in love with delicious Jeremy White she soon discovers that her new life is not as uncomplicated as she’d hoped. It may look like she has the perfect beach apartment and gorgeous man of her dreams but when visions of a mysterious stranger become reality and manipulating exes are out to cause trouble in paradise, Em just wants to find the truth in a world of deceit. 

 

The Light Direction will take you on a fast-paced roller coaster of hot sex, mind games and supernatural visions that will leave you hungry for more.
