Author- Tarang Sinha
Publishers- Gargi publishers
Language: English
Pages- 192
Genre- Romance

Blurb- Paridhi Mathur, dusky, beautiful, and (determined to be) single, is doing everything to keep her academic records high and her love life nil, but lady luck keeps frowning at her. When she meets Abhigyan Ambastha, rich - devastatingly handsome, intense and sometimes curt, her resolve wavers. Despite regular warnings from her ever-suspicious heart, she inexplicably gets attracted towards him. But she would not let him trespass her soul. Why? Is she scared of mendacious face of love her past has inflicted on her? Can Paridhi really trust Abhigyan? Will a blissful breeze of love ever kiss her heart? A heart-warming saga of dreams and desires, We Will Meet Again promises to make you smile and cry at the same time. Hold on to your hearts before embarking on this roller coaster ride of emotions!

Book Review- ‘We will meet again…’ is the debut novel of author-Tarang Sinha. It follows the journey of Paridhi, a modern age woman who has her head firmly on her shoulders. Recovering from a forgettable ‘love affair’, she meets the quintessential ‘prince charming’ and keeps on bumping into him. From here onward, the story takes on a course which is pretty familiar. There are no surprises along the path. The destination is one which we all are aware of.

The story has its share of clichés and the author does not shy away from them. A loud ‘Punjabi’ wedding, a fat boy named ‘Lovely’, a father who suffers a heart attack at just the ‘right’ time, orthodox ‘in-laws’ - all are present, duly going through the motions.

On the brighter side, the author writes in a lucid manner and the reader tends to go with the flow. The pace of the story does not slacken. The narrative is coherent. As far as the romance between the protagonists is concerned, the author decides to play safe. Sparks do fly but there is no smouldering passion.

Pick this book up for an unadulterated dose of mushy romance. We all believe in fairy tales- don’t we?

Verdict- An unadulterated dose of mushy romance
