A dog gets lost and the search that follows leads to new friendships and better understanding between siblings. The hotshot new girl of the school Nic loses her dog and the twins Mike and Maddie offer to help her along with their friends.

They help each other and their new friend and realize the importance of listening and supporting others. The Pet Shop Society is formed by all five of them and this is just the beginning of their adventures. 

I enjoyed the relaxed tone and language of the book, very suitable for our young readers since it mimics their own. It is a simple, fun story for young readers and the twists and surprises keep it peppy and fun as they go along to solve the puzzle of the missing dog.

The twin brother and sister of Mike and Maddie learn that arguing all the time is not the best approach to sort things and start to have a better understanding and respect for each other.

Making new friends and a brand new detective agency to solve cases involving pets, this book teaches and is a fun read as well. Both boys and girls can identify with the characters and I found Mike so endearing; he reminded me of my son, so naughty and full of ideas.

This is a witty, humorous story that keeps the pages turning, looking forward to new adventures with The  Pet Shop Society!

Just Love - SWEET REVENGE by Olivier Lafont

Sweet Revenge is the second book I have read by Oliver Lafont and I am not disappointed at all. Firstly the language is superb, keeps the story flowing and the smattering of French adds to the narration. The story immediately pulled me in and I was amazed at expert handling of romance by the author whose previous book was a mythological, action read – Warrior. This one is very different and I have to say full justice to this genre but then even in Warrior the love angle was very well etched by the author.

The story is of a typical misunderstanding between lovers but adding to it is dishonesty and selfish people who want to ensure the lovers stay apart. In turn the “she did it, no he did it” ensures both Guy and Eve keep trying to equal the score or try and seek revenge. The story is fast paced, not a dull moment and the twists and turns kept me engrossed. I read the book in two sittings but it was a hard to put down book.

The author has taken a romance and woven a tale with twists and turns making it into a page turner. The one thing that I was not happy with was the cover, it is a bit misleading. The picture makes the reader think that it is a steamy, erotic read but the book is far from it. It is hot inside the covers, no doubt but the kind a reader enjoys and won’t hesitate sharing with friends. A very tasteful read, I am recommending it to my mom. She will enjoy it, such is the layered story. 

The characters are all well developed and endearing. I especially loved reading about Petite Maman – guy’s Grandmother who evoked so much love and faith. Another thing I enjoyed was that the thoughts of both the protagonists were shared by the author and he has done full justice to both of their emotions and thoughts.

“No photograph had ever captured him that well, that humanly. In this man were qualities and strengths anyone would die to have.”

The path of true love is never easy and here the deceit, confusion and ego, all have their share in keeping the lovers apart. Even a scheming relative adds to the plot. The fast paced story with delightful passages filled with love and its myriad feelings and thoughts had me smiling and reading much to the annoyance of my son. He never likes it when he can’t find pictures in what I read – poor kid, doesn’t know what he is missing! ;)

An effortlessly handsome, well etched hero who made me swoon and drool. Strong, self made and the quintessential romance hero; Oliver has written Guy perfectly.

Eve, the heroine is smart, sweet, honest and sexy as sin. She embodies femininity and style, a gentle lady with an artist’s soul as the reader will discover.

“She was a vision in red satin, something out of fashion legend, with the black sash cinched around the waist he had caresses to madness days before.”

Sentences that speak of adoration, rapture and longing to be in each other’s arms; feeling and sharing love. Language that beautifies the emotions and feeling make this a seductive, sensuous and amorous read. I just loved the book and will be reading it again – a very rare thing for me since I can count the handful of books I have re-read! A sublime read for the lovers of romance and love.

All I can say is - another romance please, Oliver. Hope you are already writing one!

Sweet Revenge by Olivier Lafont

If revenge was a dish best served cold, then French Adonis Guy Leguerec knew exactly what to serve treacherous and desirable Eve Watson… 

Seven years after Louisiana, where Eve devastated his heart and ruthlessly wiped out his future, Guy finds her in Boston opening her first art showing. Now a wealthy and powerful shipping magnate, Guy lures Eve into his trap of seduction and opulence, intent on one thing only: getting revenge for her crimes. 

When American artist Eve Watson sees the only man she ever loved enter the art gallery, and re-enter her life, she feels helpless terror and frenzied desire. Seven years ago Guy Leguerec had seduced her heart, exploited her body, and then discarded her. Against her better judgment she accepts his invitation, and once again they spiral into a maelstrom of irresistible passion, divinely rampant sex, and the brutal politics of unknown intentions… 
Violently sundered by their volatile misconceptions, Eve flees Boston in emotional tatters, and Guy grudgingly lets her vanish, his revenge thwarted. 

But destiny has planned otherwise: Eve has taken an art job in Paris, ignorant of the fact that the company is one of many subsidiary businesses belonging to Guy. Flung together again in an even more precarious position, Eve and Guy must war with each other and themselves, and confront seven years of misapprehension and malign manipulation.

Greed, family vendetta, and deception have eaten away at the intimacy they once shared — 
But is the truth enough to save their desperate, shipwrecked love?

A Thousand Unspoken Words By Paulami Duttagupta

A Thousand Unspoken Words 
Paulami Duttagupta 

Publisher: Readomania 


A hero, a person who displays great courage for the greater good, can also fall. But what happens to a fallen hero? A Thousand Unspoken Words is the unique journey of a hero who falls. 

The champion of the underdogs, the writer who uses the nom de plume Musafir is famous in Kolkata. His incisive criticism of the injustices around him earn him many enemies but he holds his ideals above all else. Scathing attacks at his books and a night of hide and seek from political goons leads Musafir unto a path he never liked, faraway from his ideals. He runs away and chooses the comforts of money over the travails of following one’s ideals. The hero falls. 
But Tilottama, passionate fan’s hopes don’t. When he comes back after many years, emotions, love and lust take charge and an affair brews. Will she bring back her hero? Will he rise again? Or will the thousand untold words, the many stories of the ideal writer be lost forever?

Wahan kaun hai tera, Musafir jaayega kaha’, the retro radio show played the SD Burman classic. Tilottama looked at her radio once and tears blurred her vision.

‘O Sachin karta this song reminds me of him.’

Tilotamma quickly wiped her eyes and turned the radio off. The day had been taxing enough. She needed to unwind, get Musafir out of her mind. How crazy could some people get? He had just written a fictional piece. How could fiction humiliate a government in power with an absolute majority? Wasn’t this a democracy? How could the supporters of a faith or political party get all insecure and burn his books?

The object of Tilottama’s despair, Musafir, was a writer supposedly based out of Kolkata. He wrote books at irregular intervals, and hid behind the veil of anonymity. His pieces were mostly social commentaries and satires on the state of Bengal. They were all fictional but had come under severe criticism in the past few months. Little paperbacks in funny covers, his books were available in old, rambling, bookstores across the city. Some were also available with the book vendors on the footpaths of the city.

When the news of the pulping of Musafir’s books had reached her a couple of days ago, Tilottama hadn’t thought things would go beyond a protest or two. The people of the city wouldn’t let go of things without a sign of protest. They got agitated at trivial things like who was included in a cricket team, and burned effigies and tyres in protest. They took out processions for Vietnam and Gaza. They could protest against him; but there would also be scores who would come out for her Musafir. They did when Firaz was hounded for his paintings of Goddesses.

‘And when they come out in large numbers, these goons will realize what it feels like standing before a civil society. They just can’t stifle Musafir’, she had confidently told her friends. What she did not realize was Musafir wasn’t exactly popular with the masses. His works were mostly literary and catered to niche readers. Her admiration for him had made her assume he was more popular than he really was.
Things had happened much faster than expected and spiralled out of control. Musafir’s printing press was vandalized and set on fire. Even as she and other Musafir fans watched, his books were dumped into that raging fire; words and hopes lost. The hundred odd fans tried to put up a bravefight, sang songs of freedom and stood with placards. But nothing worked. A couple of local channels had tried to stand by them in solidarity. The protest ended as a camera was smashed by the hoodlums on the road. People started fleeing fearing more violence.

‘They would kill us if they could’, Tilottama angrily spat out. ‘We were just so outnumbered. These were organized cadres. Yes, they were. Their bosses just can’t pretend to be innocent.’

A handful of policemen stood by pretending as if nothing was happening. The printing press was in one of the dingier parts of North Kolkata. It mainly did odd jobs like printing leaflets and bills, a few little magazines etc. and would print Musafir’s books on the sly. That is where he gave shape to his voice. The place was reportedly registered in the name of a man long dead, and people were left guessing who Musafir was. Some said the owner was a refugee who was avenging years of discontent. Some said his son was murdered by members of the ruling party. Some said he was just a frustrated man using the medium to lend himself a voice. To some other the entire idea was amusing and fascinating.

Tilottama grimaced and wiped her face clean. She was cutting a very sorry picture indeed, covered in grime andtears. All she could think of was her Musafir. She fought back her tears wondering what could have happened to her hero. For the past couple of years a strong wind of incumbency was blowing and Musafir’s voice had become stronger. Everything came under Musafir’s attack; from Dhaniajhapi to the burning of monks, the ban on English in government run schools, the apathy in the use of computers and much more. However, recently he had become vocal against all forms of religious appeasement and challenged the special religious laws. He had also set the stage against land acquisition bills, mismanaged industrialization plans and pre-election harangues. Musafir wrote as many books as possible bringing the discrepancies to light. And that is what brought about his downfall.

Tilottama sat on her bed and hugged her knees to her chest and went over the events of the day. She bit back the memory of the man who had asked her to let go of her placard, but that face would just not fade. 

‘What had he called himself,’ she wondered, ‘Ayushmaan . . .no Riddhimaan.’

He was a photographer! How dispassionate could he be?He had watched the carnage, merrily taken snaps and asked her to throw away her placard. If even the press did not come out in support of Musafir, then who would? Weren’t both of them fighting to make the pen immortal? Why was the media silent now; because Musafir didn’t have international backing, or corporate sponsors? She was upset that Poltu had shamelessly praised the man. Riddhimaan and the likes of him would give importance to writers only if they had a South Block or Writers’ Building backing.

‘I wish this government goes down. They will go down. I promise you Musafir they will,’ she told herself.
The loud banging of her window pane broke her reverie. The rains had lashed Kolkata with all their fury that evening. 

‘Even Mother Nature is angry. Drown the city, drown all of us. Since we have nowhere to go and hide our shame,’ Tilottama said aloud.

She continued to rant as she shut the window. She had hurt her finger in the process. Then she walked into her bedroom looking for the first aid box. As she cleaned the cut, the antiseptic made her skin burn and her thoughts drifted to Musafir. There was no way to divert her mind. Maybe reading Musafir would help, or maybe writing. Musafir always said he wrote to look for answers. Maybe she could do that too. But nothing gave her peace; maybe she was obsessed with the writer. The gag on Musafir was beginning to become a personal loss to her.

The Dowry Bride by Shobhan Bantwal #BookReview


The Dowry Bride is the story of a young 21 year old girl who runs away from her home when she realizes that her in-laws and husband are trying to kill her. How she manages to survive; where does she find the support and help to fight the odds and win. The book cover was the first thing that attracted me to the book and of course the topic of dowry, an ill that ails our society. It is a very aesthetically pleasing cover and the fire on the cover following the footsteps of a bride was a big pull for me to read the book as was the story.

This is also a book that made me think and wonder what exactly I wanted to share in my review. The Dowry Bride is a reflection of our society, urging us to take action and change our ways.

The twist in the plot is when she finds refuge in the home of a relative of her husband who is secretly in love with her. Kunal comes across as a solid, sensible and calm guy. He is her glimmer of hope, the one supporter for Megha to start a new life. I enjoyed reading their interactions and discussions. The caring nature was just what she needed to blossom. He was truly her knight in shining armor.

The story very astutely highlights the pitfalls our young girls face. How a beautiful, educated girl gets married to a lying, spineless guy. The tyrannical mother-in-law and total lack of support from her own family add to her woes as does the never ending, back-breaking work. The society that looks upon young girls as burdens to be shed off, rather than to be nurtured as family members.

Shobhan paints a true picture, scores of women face all this and more through their lives, just surviving and hoping for a change. Many are not so lucky as Megha and countless have lost their lives. The book creates awareness about this heinous crime and shares the story that could have been any young girls.

The character of her mother-in-law, Amma and her spineless husband Suresh are well etched, realistic. The cruel streak in Chandramma is so obvious that even I felt quite upset and angry; any one would wish to move out. The diabolical plan devised by them both is the catalyst in Megha’s escape. It is true; fear is a big motivator as well as a hindrance. She runs but knows not what to do next. Her escape is temporary since her in-laws are still searching for her. The lack of Dowry, the greed for more money has ruined many a lives.

Megha herself is a strong girl; even though she feels unsure of herself yet with Kunal’s support she not only survives but also achieves her goals. The book works on many levels. The premise is excellent; the escape is adventures as is her acceptance of her feelings for Kunal. Add to it the struggle she faces, along with disapproving relatives makes for a good read. The book was a bit slow for me in the middle wherein she is just holed up at Kunal’s house. I felt as if she is not trying to do anything but the situation changes soon enough. vcfx
The book has excellent language and the conversations just flow. 

The plot has a lot of hidden twists with Ajji, Kunal’s grandmother and Appaji who supported Megha even though he could not do much. Attacks, goons, spies and enough hidden secrets to put any Saas-Bahu serial to shame The Dowry Bride has a solid story as well. Meghna manages to survive but just; she starts living after she almost dies. Their presence makes a lot of difference to Megha’s future, as well as adding a human touch to her story.

The author ends the story on a optimistic note while sharing a message of positivity making it a very apt ‘feel good read’. The book evokes many emotions and even though it talks of an evil practice it left me with a encouraging frame of mind. A book with a message of hope and a whole lot of love.

The Dowry Bride by Shobhan Bantwal

She is 21, married, childless . . . and she is about to be burned. As the dowry culture in India, in spite of the Dowry Law, remains an ugly reality, will Megha Ramnath contribute to changing it, or will she silently succumb to its dark existence? As Megha wakes up in the dead of night to the squeaking of the woodshed door, she steps out to see the cause behind it. What she witnesses is something so dangerous, so sinister that she is soon racing through the deserted streets of Palgaum, with only one thing on her mind: to put as much distance as she can between herself and the place she has come to call home for the past year, for her very family members—husband and mother-in-law—are plotting to burn her alive that very night! What will she do now? Where will she go? Making her way through the dim-lit streets, there is only one name that comes to her mind—Kunal, the one man who has shown her friendship and respect in her new household. Hiding in his apartment, he becomes her protector. As the forbidden attraction between them grows and complicates an already messy situation, will Kunal be successful in safeguarding Megha? Torn between her affections for Kunal and the conventional ethos of the society, which path will she choose? Follow Megha as she struggles to piece together her life and work towards an unblemished future, unveiling the brutal realities faced by the Dowry Brides.

Keeling Lake’s life was flipped upside down for years after he was targeted by Dani in her carefully plotted paternity fraud. But now he’s out of jail, and he’s out to exact some revenge of his own. With his meddling mom at his side, Keeling may be headed for more problems than he bargained for.

Describe your writing style. 
I'm not sure I have a particular writing style.  It all depends on the story I'm trying to tell. Although I tend to be a creature of habit, when it comes to writing, I try not to adhere to any boundaries. That means I'm bound to come up with something different in each book.

Describe the two central characters in this book.  
The two central characters in Somebody Has to Pay are Dani and Arlene. Both are women who feel they deserve child support payment for different reasons. Dani knew Keeling didn't father her child, but named him anyway and wants to keep receiving payments from him. Arlene was hired as a nanny, she had an affair with the husband who went back to his wife and when he dumped her, she tried to use their child as a pawn to get what she wanted.
