before her biggest performance, forcing her to do the one thing she never wanted to do—come back home. To Mumbai.
Now, a year later, Meera is still trying to pick up the pieces, while fending off marriage proposals from her well-meaning but traditional Gujarati family, and figure life out all over again. By starting a ballet school in Mumbai. But she has two problems. One, she doesn’t know anything about running a business. And two, she can’t dance. Not anymore.
Enter . . .
Abeer Goswami. Hotshot junior partner at a South Bombay law firm and a man nursing a broken heart. When he meets Meera again, the woman who left him, he tries his hardest to be her friend, to help her . . . and not let the past get in the way.
And then . . .
There is the sexy Zoya Sehgal. Meera’s only friend in the city and the woman Abeer is currently seeing. They say triangles have pointy edges, for a reason. Will Meera find a new dream in her ballet school? Can Abeer and Meera find their way back to each other again? And, most important, has Meera danced for the last time?
With you I dance is a warm, funny, at times heart-rending, love story of second chances, true love, and finding yourself when your dearest dream has vanished.

Right Fit Wrong Shoe
Right Fit Wrong Shoe, begins at a point where all love stories end. The tale weaves around Nandini and all that is important to her, with two contenders gunning for the top spot; Aditya Sarin and Sneha Verma.
Aditya Sarin, the man Nandini is madly in love with, yet compelled, for some unsolved reason to shun. Aditya, on his part, in the past declared Nandini to be a ‘millennium bhehenji (conservative girl)’ and ‘lassi (yoghurt drink) in a wine glass’. Yet he fell for her . . . hard! However, some mysterious episode caused the lovers to, acrimoniously, part.
Now, Aditya is back in Kanpur, all his guns blazing (the real and the imagined), determined to devastate her life. Fortunately for the readers, and unfotunately for Aditya, Nandini is determined not to‘bite the dust’ oh so quietly. Wonder, in the battle royal, who wins or who loses it all?
Sneha Verma, the other contender, is Nandini’s BFF, that one friend who knows us better than we do. The one we trust more than Stayfree or Clearasil. Sneha maybe headstrong, hammer fisted and stern mouthed, but for Nandini, she will willingly stand in the path of imminent lightning bolt or a nasty tornado, even if it’s named Aditya Sarin. In standard X, Sneha took Nandini under her wing and that equation hasn't changed much. Sneha, a recent wife and even more recent mom, appears to be fighting some unknown demons of her own.
Right Fit Wrong Shoe, observes and opinionates the society, affected and amused. It fleetingly touches on issues; fleeting as watching discourses (courtesy Astha Channel), is trendier and quicker, than reading them.
The book is an AAA (anytime, anywhere, anyone) read. It promises to make your day better, and a bad one not any worse.

HOW I GOT THIS BOOK: Review copy as a part of Italy Book tours. Thanks guys.
Yet another good thriller from this writer. Set in Naples, the story is majorly about the famous (or Infamous may be!) Italian mafia – Camorra.
With one of the prime characters going undercover, the readers are treated to the ruthlessness of the Mafia. That part of the story felt so realistic that at one point I felt that the writer must have either been a victim or must have had an Italian or simply must have done his research well. Finally we get to know the “face” behind bianca’s online friend Loki. That part of the story however wasn’t really up to my expectations and was bit of a drag.
The story provided a rather different insight about Italy as such. Reading about how the mafia actually impacts the lives of common people is a bit appalling and sad. Italy has forever been in my buck list of places to visit. Reading about the other side of the country gave me a different perspective.
Just like the previous books, the writer added that extra layer of characterization over the base character sketch that he had developed in the first book. The writer seems to be an expert in “group” characterization. As in each character seem to behave differently as an individual but differently as a group. This added a depth to the story. In short, the book was a fantastic read.
MY SAY: A well written thriller.

HOW I GOT THIS BOOK: Review copy from the writer as a part of a book by iRead Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. Thanks guys!
Being the third book in the series, I had grown accustomed to the writer’s style and knew what to expect. Undoubtedly, the story exceeded my expectations again. This book was a bit different from the first two. The writer detailed Italy’s political history and its struggle with Mafia. I’ve always been enchanted by this country’s culture, reading about the politics and the mafia through this story was pretty insightful.
This part of the series follows Bianca’s “adventures” back in Italy. She is back with her “boyfriend” Dante. In this story though, Farrugia is the actual star. The story at one points turns all about him and his history with the Mafia. A college student is murdered during his meet with Bianca who seems to be investigating yet another financial scadal of sorts this time. Loki, her online friend warns her to stay away which obviously doesn’t obey. Things take a nasty turn when another murder happens, one that has a potential to end Farrugia’s career. What follows is a story of Farrugia’s “Fate”.
With slick writing, this book was an interesting read. Politics and history are potentially snore worthy combination if not present properly. The writer surprised me by presenting both the subjects in an interesting manner. The historical and political part of Italian Mafia blended well with the story, making the story a over all well written read. Given that I’m already acquianted well with the characters, this book was a comfortable read for me. Yet, the writer did manage to surprise me by bringing out different shades in the core characters. For instance, Bianca seemed a bit edgy and has trust issues. It felt a bit comical when Farrugia takes up Yoga to relive his stress.
MY SAY: Yet another perfect thriller by this writer. Not surprising at all!
