I've known the writer for quite a while now and have interacted with her over social media. Having not read her previous works, this book came as a complete surprise for me. The book turned out to be an interesting and un-put-downable read.
The story revolves around an alleged theft and an intense royal love affair. The story begins with an antique piece being stolen. Shefali, the art curator is accused of stealing the beautiful piece of art, the fabarge from the Ranaut royals. Prince Aryan, the heir of the family is after Shefali to retrieve it back. However, as expected, Shefali isn't the actual culprit. What unfolds is a high speed story with a dash of romance.
The main characters - Shefali and Aryan, along with the other sub characters were sketched out very clearly with enough information being given about each of them. Done to perfection would be the apt phrase to describe it.
The plot as such was well thought of with critical elements like romance and suspense incorporated in correct amount into the story. However, the dynamism is what I found a little unsettling. Aryan was the typical hot headed prince who didn't bother to check his facts thoroughly before trying to accuse someone of theft, but the moment he finds out the truth he simply melts and changes his stand. Barring this slight hitch, this book was perfect read.
Brownie points to the author for the perfect cover!
