Synopsis


Who killed Gulab Sarin?


The radiant new daughter-in-law of the influential Mehta family dies mysteriously on the very next night of her wedding. The murder is an inside job, the police are certain. It could be anyone, the adulterous husband, conniving in-laws, jealous friend and the love struck ex-fiance. With an aim to save themselves and incriminate others, it is not long before these suspects turn into amateur detectives, hunting for clues and delving into hidden secrets only they can unearth. They coerce, pry and blackmail in an attempt to get to the bottom of this mystery. Will one of these nine unlikely sleuths finally unravel the mystery behind Gulab's death and avenge it? Or will the truth die as viciously as Gulab? 


My Thoughts


Gulab had agonizing childhood. With her parents divorced when she was just a little girl, Gulab always yearned for a family. Her yearning turned to need when little Gulab lost her mother and had to live with her father for whom she was as good as dead. Her father's family never accepted her and for her cousins she was the "wierdo".

"My father considered me a bane of his life and this feeling was absorbed by the rest of my relatives as well." 

Sid entered in little Gulab's life as an Angel who gave her all she ever wanted- love of a family and her best friend Yuvi. Gulab grew up loving Sid and always confiding in Yuvi. 
And before dying had her heart broken and got it pieced back together. Found a dear family in the Sara and Ned. Married Sid Mehta (and took revenge).
But now the question is Why is she Dead? and Who killed her? 
Read her story and you'll know what a roller coaster ride she had.

All the characters were amazing in there own way. Initially little Gulab had me in her team immediately out of sympathy, I was really happy when she finds a family but then as the story proceeded I remember cursing her for her actions hating her, thinking it is good that she died and then BAM! came the end which had me in tears for her death.
I really liked Yuvi- her best friend. He is a man of few words and a really sweet and amazing friend. He was a kind of friend who could kill anyone if they hurt his childhood friend. I was shocked the ending that he had I really wished that he had a better ending.
The twins Ned and Sara Dulla had my heart. They are the sweetest and the most supportive people. Ned is a real gentleman who brought back Gulab and pieced back her heart without asking for anything in return. He is also a fiercely protective brother. And as for Sara I am surprised that she ignored her bitter past with Gulab and supported her during her bad time.
As for Sid Mehta you'll have to read the book to know him properly.
All the other characters added a right flavor of spice and sweetness to the story.   

The book had two stories going on with alternate chapters for each. One is about the present where everyone is busy fining the culprit and their reactions to Gulab's death and other is about Gulab's entire life which is narrated by Gulab herself.
I was sucked into the story right from the beginning. I really loved Rasleen's writing, the way with which she wrote that Prologue had me awestruck and then the more I read more I fell in love with her story-telling style. I really liked how she intertwined present and past stories and left the clues which left me guessing about who the real culprit was. And that ending AH!!! it was unexpected and amazing (storywise) but it was sad, I really cried when I read that (which happens very rarely).
I was like a movie with a nice blend of innocence, drama, deceit, romance and mystery. 

I just have one thing to say if you love mysteries mixed up with nice plot and a blend of varied colors of characters then you really must give this one a chance.    

5 out of 5

(P.S: I don't know why I feel this but I think you might find some grammatical and syntactical mistakes Please ignore them I tried my best to find them but couldn't and a friend who does this for me is out of station and not available to check those. :( )

Release Day: Accidentally Married on Purpose by Rachel Harris (Giveaway)

AMOP RDL Banner

We are so excited to bring you the Release Day Launch for Rachel Harris' ACCIDENTALLY MARRIED ON PURPOSE!! ACCIDENTALLY MARRIED ON PURPOSE is the third book in her Love and Games Series published by Entangled Bliss. 

Accidentally Married On Purpose

About ACCIDENTALLY MARRIED ON PURPOSE:

One ring plus one wild night equals one crazy love

Sherry Robicheaux loves men. She loves love. And she loves an adventure. So when she meets a mysterious man while working backstage at a country music concert in Vegas, she’s all about what’s happened in Vegas staying there.

Country music superstar Tyler Blue just wants a weekend of anonymity…though there’s something about the spunky waitress with the streaks of purple hair that tempts him like no other. Until the next morning, when they both wake up with fuzzy memories…and rings on their fingers.

Convincing Sherry to maintain the ruse for his public image isn’t the hardest part—it’s reminding himself that their time spent playing husband and wife in her small town of Magnolia Springs can’t last. Tyler’s first love will always be music—and the road is no place for a sweet downhome girl.



EXCERPT:

From opposite the long table of food, the brunette gave him a blatant once over as he came to a stop in front of her, twirling a strand of purple hair around her fingertip. When she reached his lucky belt buckle, her sinful lips twitched.

“If the words, ‘Come here often,’ leave your mouth, I swear I’ll laugh you straight back to roadie-ville.” Her words were harsh, but the smile that sprang free was playful, and Tyler found himself mesmerized by the familiar twang of her southern voice.

So much so that he’d almost missed what she said.

“Roadie-ville?”

“Sorry, do you prefer techie?” Her cute nose wrinkled as she stuck her hands in her back jeans pocket. “I heard someone else say that earlier, but I swear that sounds like a computer nerd.” She looked him up and down again, this time her gaze lingering around his hips. Slightly south of the belt buckle. Hot damn. “I think roadie fits you better. Sounds sexier.”

Tyler scratched the side of his jaw. Was she messing with him? He’d heard a hell of a lot of come-ons since making it to Nashville and had been propositioned in every way possible. But this was a first. The woman stared back, smiling that damn seductive smile, and he realized she honestly had no clue who he was. For some reason, he was in no hurry to correct that just yet.

He couldn’t recall the last time he’d gone anywhere without being recognized, much less his own concert. But since the room was swarming with crew, Tyler could understand the confusion…if she weren’t a hardcore fan, and clearly, this woman wasn’t. Tyler swiped a hand over his mouth, hiding a smile.

“Sugar, you can call me anything you like,” he drawled, laying it on thick even to his own ears. Her pretty lips parted, and he grinned. “And what can I call you?”

Her smile twisted into a smirk. “Who said you could call me at all?”

He laughed, shocked again, and for the first time in a long time, speechless.

She winked. “I’m Sherry.” When she said her name, she looked right into his eyes as if he should remember it, and he had no doubt that he would. The confidence pouring off her was sexy as hell. “And…you are?”

“Tyler,” he replied, glad she’d gone with just her first name so he could do the same. The rest of the world simply referred to Tyler as Blue, the front man for the band bearing his last name. Even so, he stood back and waited for a sign of recognition.

It never came.

When it became obvious she really had no clue who he was, nor would she guess any time soon, Tyler felt a knot of tension release between his shoulder blades.

“So, Sherry, you planning to watch tonight’s show?”

She pulled a face. “I’m not much for country, other than the line dances. All those songs about trucks and trains and whiskey and dogs, though that last one I can forgive.” Her smile softened and Tyler moved closer, wanting to be nearer the genuine warmth of it. “No offense to your boss or anything,” she added with a slight grimace. “I heard he’s pretty hot…even if he is the man-whore of country music.”

A shocked laugh burst from his lips. “Excuse me?”

She waved her comment away, as if she hadn’t just insulted him to his face—which, he guessed, she hadn’t really. At least not on purpose. “Just a theory I have. I’m sure he’s a perfectly adequate boss.”

Now, Tyler laughed for real. “Yeah, he’s…adequate.” Shaking his head, he propped his hip on the table. This was the most fun he’d had with a woman in months—and they both still had their clothes on.

Review: It's Not My Favorite by Rue

image: goodreads
Publication Date: April 21, 2014 (Paperback); May 30, 2014 (Electronic Book)
Published by: Sittin' On A Goldmine Productions LLC
Pages: 313

Synopsis

The Hutchinson sisters grew up under the piercing, pious stare of a preacher's wife. Plagued by her ever-disappointed refrain, "Well, it's not my favorite." Their search to find their own way in the world has not been a screaming success. Gwenn is a good girl, a responsible girl... a miserable girl. Her steady diet of vivid fantasies is the only part of her life she enjoys. She daydreams of new parents, a more exciting job and an actual love life. She struggles to run a business as "The Organizer," while she stacks relationship carcasses in the closet of her own completely unorganized life. Her only real friend is her younger sister, Rachel. Rachel is outgoing, risque and happily gay. The only people who don't know this little secret are her judgmental parents, Pastor Ed and Shirley. Rachel struggles mightily to dodge her mother's constant attempts to set her up with "nice Christian boys"; while holding down a job at the bakery and keeping up with her rock-star girlfriend! Gwenn uncovers a photo that brings her imaginary world careening into reality. She's forced to ask herself if wealthy artist, Daniel Gregory is the answer she's been seeking or a grand delusion. Break-ups, meltdowns, family secrets, wild nights and finally a journey of self-discovery to exotic New Zealand keep Gwenn and Rachel stumbling toward independence. So grab your parka and join the Hutchinson girls, as they experience the Lake Effect in Duluth, Minnesota! (source: goodreads)


My Thoughts

(I was provided a copy by the author, but all the view mentioned here are solely mine and unbiased)

The story revolves around Hutchinson sisters- Gwenn and Rachel. They both hate their parents- the meek Pastor Ed and the dominating Shirley. While Rachel has made peace with the fact that her parents are going to remain the way they are, Gwenn is hopping and daydreaming for a new family. 
The Hutchinson family has forever been on move, never settling at a place for more than a few years because of Pastor Ed's and Shirley's search for God. These regular unplanned moves caused the sisters childhood miserable as they never had friends and suffered in loneliness or got mixed up in wrong crowd. Growing up Gwenn had some nice relationships but her parent's disapproval (Shirley's Judgey-ness) never let her have a nice ending. And Rachel has been in out of closet for past 10 years but the twist here is that her parent's don't know this and this causes some funny situations when they ask her to date "nice christian boys". 
Gwenn's search for a new family, a house where she does not have to feel like a stranger and a misfit anymore takes her on a journey which is both beautiful and torturous. She and her sister Rachel together work hard to get their own Happy Endings (or Happy Beginnings) about which they had been dreaming their whole life.

Oooh!!! The beginning chapter was soo hot. Alas! it was just a dream. But don't worry this book has a nice blend of several emotions. 
It was a delightful read with a great mix of diverse characters

I really liked the sisters and their bonding is awesome. Both are like two ends of same coin who are incomplete without each other. Gwenn is the responsible one, always making everybody happy, never wanting to hurt others and organizing other people's life even though her own life is a mess; and Rachel is a happy go lucky girl who never misses to have fun, knows how to party and flow with the flow.
Being the eldest child of the house I was able to relate to Gwenn's feelings of not hurting the family and her protective attitude towards her baby sister. 
Rachel might superficially seem like a immature girl but I felt like she really is the mature one, she handled her own problems very nicely.
I really hated their parents especially Shirley. At some instances I really felt like strangling her or giving her a nice talk on how not to judge her children and for Pastor Ed, I just wanted to give him a nice slap that would wake him up from his don't-go-againt-wife-as-she-is-his-superhero sleep and ask him to understand his daughters.
Ah!!! Finally the hero or as I like to say passionate lover boy (more like man) Daniel Gregory. I really loved him. He has his own baggage from his past but the way he carries himself makes the ladies swarm into his direction. I really liked getting to know about his struggles he faced while getting control over his own Demons. He loved like really loved Gwenn - though it was only after a short meeting and a funny encounter with the drunk Gwenn, he really liked her. And the way he followed Gwenn across the globe to take her out from her misery was amazing.

I can seriously go on and on about the characters, they really were awesome. The perfectionist and the best-est friend Todd, the hardworking Flora and the man-whore Henry whom-i'd-like-to-punch.

Towards the end I felt like story was kinda loosely tied. I really hoped to see getting-to-know-each-other-scenes between Gwenn and Daniel. How was the relationship between the sisters with their parents after the BIG revelation. There was also some really big descriptions which slowed the pace and sometimes were not necessary, but it can be overlooked as I think they might be pointing towards the storyline of future books in the series (this is the only reason my mind would come up with when I saw that this is a series).

Overall it is nice read and I really had amazing experience following Gwenn on her self-discovery or the introspection journey while soaking in the beautiful sights of New Zealand. Rue wrote it so beautifully that I really wished I was there with Gwenn.
I did a little happy dance when I saw that this is a series and I might get more of these amazing characters(ahem! ahem! Todd and Flora's please) and might get few of my confusions cleared.

Book Tour: Bootie and the Beast by Falguni Kothari


Fairytales don't end with True Love's Kiss, they begin with one...
Diya Mathur (aka Beauty), celebrated supermodel and Party Princess of India, is adored by everyone. She works hard, plays hard, and has the biggest shoe fetish on the planet. But after she purchases one baby bootie, Diya's reputation is in ruins. There's only one place to escape the rumours - Texas, under the protection of her lifelong friend, and secret love, Krish Menon (aka the Beast).
Financial whizz-kid, CFO and entrepreneur, Krish is a brooding workaholic with a charisma that still brings Beauty Mathur to her knees. He has no idea, of course! They've shared a bond since childhood - a special friendship that thrives on sparring, teasing and goading - but with Diya back in his life and under his roof, Krish's latent desire for her explodes. And when he finally admits to the secret that has never allowed him to commit to any woman - especially Diya - everything changes. Krish might finally realise how much he wants his Beauty. But he won't get her until Diya has tamed her Beast.



Today I have an awesome excerpt from the book Bootie and the Beast that the author Falguni Kothari is letting me share with my readers. ENJOY!!! :D

Excerpt from Bootie and the Beast

in which the Beast learns that no good deed goes unpunished. ~ Falguni.

Krish stepped back before Diya poked him again. “There’s nothing wrong in meeting him, testing the potential.”

“You…you…want me…me to meet some prospective groom my father’s plucked out of a hat?” she asked in horror.
           
Put like that, it did sound like a terrible idea. But he had promised Kamal Uncle he’d try and smooth the way. “He’s a great guy.”
           
“How would you know? Do you know him? Is he one of your best buds?”
           
“Well, no. I don’t know him personally,” he admitted. “But I’ve heard…”
           
“From Daddy,” she cut him off, derisively. “Ha! What an unbiased opinion that would be.” She breathed in and out, in and out, several times, clenching and unclenching her fists. “Fine, I’ll meet this…this paragon. When?”
           
Krish cleared his throat. “On Sunday. And he’s…”
           
She held up a hand. “Spare me the glossing over. I don’t want to hear any melodious praises about him. I don’t want to know about him second or third hand. I’ll meet him and decide for myself if we’re suited.”
           
Krish bit back a retort or two regarding her abnormally mature attitude. Where had she hidden it nine years ago? He didn’t mention her fixation on fairytales or princes or the charming Hasaan. Wouldn’t do any good to annoy her when she’d made his task easy. Maybe not quite so easy, he thought when she voiced her next demand.
           
“If I’m going to be shackled to some stranger by the end of the week then I’ll go down in glory,” cried the drama queen. “And since you’re my knave, you have to do what I say. You will take the week off. I don’t care how busy you are, Beast. If you disagree, the deal is off.”

Her mouth fell open when he agreed to her demands without arguments. He’d been working from home since the buyout, anyway, as the offices were shutting down and shifting to Wisconsin,one department at a time. He almost felt sorry for tricking Diya. Almost.

A savagely calculating look came into her eyes, belying his quick win. It made his scalp itch with unease. Her eyes swept over him from head to toe and on their way up, stopped in the periphery of his navel.

Krish sucked in a breath. While he didn’t have what Diya referred to as a god-awful jiggle-belly, he didn’t have the infamously ripped six-pack she lusted after either.

“When’s the last time you pumped iron at the gym?” She patted his gut like a mother pats a child’s head before doling out punishment.

He was going to weep for siding with her father.

“A while ago. I haven’t had time.” Or the inclination to renew his gym membership in two years, he added silently. Though, he did play a mean game of tennis and cricket every weekend.

“First project for the coming week: reacquainting you with your major muscle groups,” she declared.

Oh yeah. Paying Lady Baklava would be brutal..



About the Author:

Falguni Kothari is a non-traditional homemaker who accidently tripped on a misplaced soccer ball and fell down the writer’s rabbit hole. Having no more experience with the whole writing/publishing shebang than being a voracious reader and movie buff, it more than surprised her that she could, in fact, write a full-length novel. 
Now, several manuscripts down, when she is not trying to find a way out of her many domestic duties or cajoling her Latin dance coach to compose a rumba on Bollywood music, she is found embroiled in some or other scandal—sorry, creating stories—on her ever-faithful laptop.
She’s authored Bootie and the Beast, It’s Your Move, Wordfreak! and Scrabbulous Impressions, a short story. She rumbas across a whole smorgasbord of Social Media daily and loves to connect with most living things.

Review:The Reflections of Queen Snow White by David Meredith


DETAILS:

TitleThe Reflections of Queen Snow White
Author: David Meredith
Published: October 2nd 2013 by David Meredith
Source: From the  Author for Review Purpose
Content: Mature (18+ only)
Kindle Edition 155 pages
Rating4/5

Blur:

What happens when "happily ever after" has come and gone? 

On the eve of her only daughter, Princess Raven's wedding, an aging Snow White finds it impossible to share in the joyous spirit of the occasion. The ceremony itself promises to be the most glamorous social event of the decade. Snow White’s castle has been meticulously scrubbed, polished and opulently decorated for the celebration. It is already nearly bursting with jubilant guests and merry well-wishers. Prince Edel, Raven's fiancĂ©, is a fine man from a neighboring kingdom and Snow White's own domain is prosperous and at peace. Things could not be better, in fact, except for one thing: 

The king is dead. 

The queen has been in a moribund state of hopeless depression for over a year with no end in sight. It is only when, in a fit of bitter despair, she seeks solitude in the vastness of her own sprawling castle and climbs a long disused and forgotten tower stair that she comes face to face with herself in the very same magic mirror used by her stepmother of old. 

It promises her respite in its shimmering depths, but can Snow White trust a device that was so precious to a woman who sought to cause her such irreparable harm? Can she confront the demons of her own difficult past to discover a better future for herself and her family? And finally, can she release her soul-crushing grief and suffocating loneliness to once again discover what "happily ever after" really means? 

Only time will tell as she wrestles with her past and is forced to confront The Reflections of Queen Snow White.

My Thoughts


The Reflections of Snow White takes an interesting twist on the beloved fairy tale Snow White.This one tells the story of aging Snow White who is suffering from depression after the death of her husband Prince Charming.Unlike the original fairy tale,this one's not a fairy tale because it is closer to reality and explores more darker emotions like grief,melancholy and pain.The story also depicts Snow White's painful childhood,her recovery from near death due to the poisoned apple and her life with Charming.It brings the fairy tale to a much realistic version than fantasy.Though there is sadness,there were happy moments too like Raven's upcoming wedding and Snow White's happy life with her Prince when he was alive.My favorite part was how the "evil mirror" plays its part in the story.It gave me a whole new perspective towards how it is so misunderstood in the original version.I loved how the author managed to give a different and never read take on the classic fairy tale. Expanding a short story into full 155 pages is difficult especially when the story happens to be a beloved classic but David Meredith succeeds so beautifully with his wonderful writing.

Overall,The Reflections of Snow White by David Meredith does not fail to capture your imagination with a great futuristic version of your favorite fairy tale.
