How the story goes?
The police found the dead body of Kelly Summers in the Lake House of Sarah and Adam Morgan at their Lake House. Kelly Summer is the mistress of Adam Morgan, a struggling writer, and the husband of a renowned defense lawyer, Sarah Morgan.
The death of Kelly Summer put Adam suspicious of her reason for death as he was the last person to see her alive. But, did Adam kill Kelly?
The story takes a new turn when Sarah decided to fight for his husband’s case she thinks that she is the only person in this state to take him out of this convulsion.
How good are the characters?
Sorry! But I didn’t fall in love with either. I felt pity at the end for Adam as he counted on the wrong person at every step of his life. But, Sarah and her conversations never entice me to fall in love with her.
I find Adam behaved like a school child during the period in jail, even steping out from the bars. I don’t know why he was not able to connect the loose ends of the case.
And, how on earth, he counted on a stranger to collecte information.
Fast Pace Or Slow?

03 July 2022
What perfectly arranged characters! It is true, that whatever happens, happens for good. It goes right with character Nicole ,whom life was intertwined with Ms.O’Connor’s after her first meeting. Perfectly arranged by@Liana George is a gripping book to read about the story of women ,who went to an adventure to China from Connecticut on a short notice for revealing the truth of Ms.o’Connor’s father secret.
The story starts with Nicki shutting down her business because of a shortage of funds. But, God has a different plan for her; she got a call from Ms.O’Connor’s secretary to join the post as an organizer on an urgent basis. And, Nicki had opted to accept the offer rather than living with her Mom, actually, I could say, a hoarder.
The story took a new turn when Ms’O’Connor discovered a business card from her diseased father. MsO’Connor had to know about this and she took Nicki with her to China.
What is there for both women? What are they going to discover for themselves? Read this amazing to know the touching story of both women.
I really like how the author@Liana George took me to the land of China, where I enjoyed the delicious and authentic meal of China. Moreover, this book will show you the harsh reality of China, how people leave their children with heart problems in orphanages. I enjoyed the vivid culture of China ,especially the customs .
I really like the character, Nicki, fun, charming ,and, easy going. She is trying her best ,how to deal with her hoarder Mom. The author easily conveyed this diseases to the reader with its remedials to deal. If I talk about the MS’O’Connor’ ,she looks like a hard like coconut shell but has a very soft heart for underprivileged children.
Although this book is in series but can be read standalone. I am looking forward to read next part of this book.

BOOK REVIEW -IT ENDS WITH US – COLLEN HOOVER
My First Impression
- I know I am so late to read this book and review it But, here is my naked truth, I was skeptical to read this book. Why?
- I am not so much into romantic novels and the title itself suggests, It Ends with Us, I always thought two lovers met and ended together.
- But I was wrong, it is not going to be a clichélove story.
Part of me wanted to move ahead and read this hyped book, so I grab my kindle and read it and I loved it. Let’s discuss this book in detail.
Lily Bloom is the only child of her parents, living in Maine with her parents. But she is not happy to live with them. As she always saw her mother getting beaten up by her father for trivial things, and he never apologized for his wrongdoing. Lily Bloom’s mother suffered everything and didn’t utter a single word against his father.
Some questions always pop up in Lily’s mind. Why can’t her mother leave him and lead a happy and single life? Why she is bound to live with him, even if he beats him brutally?
Amongst all the turmoil going on in her teenage days, she met with an orphanage boy, named Altas, who came to live in an abandoned house adjacent to Lily’s house. Lily used to provide essential supplies to Atlas and even welcomed him into her house in the absence of her parents. Gradually they fall in love. But the story doesn’t end here. Atlas moved to Boston to join the military and they got apart.
Lily Bloom studied and graduated and moved to Boston in her adulthood days. She met with a handsome, charming, sexy boy, named Ryen Kincaid. They met and fall in love.
Everything seems perfect to you? Am I right?
Wait .. Hold your horses! Don’t jump on the gun.
Everything is going to be topsy-turvy with the reappearance of Atlas in Lily’s life.
Will Ryen count on Lily or something is going to change in their relationship?
How good are the characters?
Lily Bloom is an ambitious and unpliant girl. She does the things, that she always loves. She opened her own business, took it to the next level, and get herself a stand in her life.
Lily Bloom took some brave decisions regardless of being a mother of a daughter. I really loved, how first she tried to work on her relationship with Ryen. She was always there to help Ryen in managing his anger issues.
She always compared her marriage with her parent’s marriage. But she was never ready to follow the path of her mother.
I, even like the Character, Ryen, ambitious and workaholic. When it comes to the relationship, I found him sometime surreal.
I fall in love with Atlas, his simple behavior, and true feelings for Lily made me fall in love with him again and again. Even though, the side characters, Allysa and Marshall, were so lively and helpful made they both laugh and cry.
- This book talks about the dilemma etched in every women’s mind after marriage and baby.
- What would happen if I leave my husband?
- What would be my Child’s future after divorce?
- Will I be able to maintain the same standard of living?
- Ok, he beats me but he loves my child. No one is going to love my child like him.
This book talks about the JUST THINK, what you are suffering, domestic violence is not allowed, and no one can let you down or beat you up for trivial things.
YOU COULD BE LILY’S MOTHER OR LILY BLOOM. THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
What I didn’t like?
Obviously, every story has some points, which readers do not like. If I talk about this book, the cliché love triangle of Atlas, lily, and Ryen. The same bickering for an ex-lover.
This book is worth the hype. I absolutely recommend you guys to please read this book as this book contains magical writing of @collenhoover, laugh, cry, and fall in love with Ryen and Lilly.

BOOK REVIEW |THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO
You do not know how fast you have been running, how hard you have been working, and how truly exhausted you are, until someone stands behind you and says, “It’s OK, you can fall down now. I’ll catch you.”
-Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
My first impression
The first thought that came into my mind is that this book is all about the woman and her dark reality of their relationship, abuse, and much more. I thought I am going to be have a ride on the domestic violence of a renowned Hollywood actress but it was much more.
This book is all over on Bookstagram and book tube. Everyone was reading it and reviewing it and I must say I read lots of good reviews about this book and this urged me to buy this book and read the story of Evelyn. Read on to know more about this book and my experience of reading it.
What to expect?
Expect a journey of a girl who turned into a woman in Hollywood, who took her career from land to sky in no time. You can expect Evelyn to be trading her virginity to get into Hollywood, marrying at the age of 14 years, not only once but seven times, some with consent, some with just let it go! I don’t care. A bisexual woman lived her life on her own terms, supporting the LGBTQ community, and fighting the odds but never giving up. I am telling you to fasten your belt because Evelyn is going to knock your socks off.
How the story goes?
A reclusive Hollywood actress of the 1960s wants to get interviewed by Monique Grant, not so famous reporter at VIVANT. Everyone was shocked even Monique.
Why did Evelyn Hugo choose only Monique for her autobiography?
Did she have something up in her sleeve for Monique?
Evelyn Hugo is going to tell everything to Monique for her autobiography. How did she become from Evelyn Herrera to Evelyn Hugo? A Cuban girl turned her hair to blond, adopt an American accent, and here she goes to keep every man’s mouth open with her slaying features.
Evelyn ran away from his father when her mother died when Evelyn was just eleven years old. She ran straight away to the roads of Hollywood and wanted to clinch every movie, which could get her an Oscar. Evelyn is going to tell in the story how she met her seven husbands, why she got married to seven husbands and left everything in the end.
Evelyn ran into some great friends in her life, whom she trusts and can share everything with them, CELIA and HARRY CAMERON, one of her husbands also. These friends became a part and parcel of Evelyn Hugo’s life.
Still, she was alone in her house. Why?
Read the book and find out the real Evelyn.
How good were the characters?
Awesome! I just wanted to go and hug Evelyn for her losses suffered and wanted to say that everything will be OKAY. How relentless a fighter you are?
The writing is simply marvelous. With the character of Evelyn, you can enjoy the parties of Hollywood, even, the reality of Hollywood. Enjoy the ride of light, camera, and action, going to the academy awards and an Oscar. Who wouldn’t be happier to be at late-night parties and hanging around with famous superstars? But you are going to see something, which you think at that moment. No this should not be done. Evelyn is a character with flaws but she always lives like a queen.
Skip it or Get it
You would be repenting if you would not read this book. Please read this book asap.
Thanks for your valuable time.

So, let’s start this review without any ado..

His every novel has grabbed the eyeballs of Bollywood film makers. His style of writing makes him different from his contemporary writers. Currently, he resides in the states of Uttar Pradesh.
- MY REVIEW
This book is full of action, drama, adventurous life of Ghanshyam Shastri, who got a mysterious case of Payal Kothari, found dead in the hotel. Ghanshyam Shastri came into action, Mr. Ratan, Inspector of Kothari’s case got fired from this case because of influenced big tycoon, and the case hand over to a corrupted officer, Mr.Uday. The story reveals the love, and betrayal in family relationships, which only affected the bonding of siblings.
The author perfectly crafted the bold character of Ghanshyam Shastri ,who knew something is fishy in the case from the starting. The ending was quite predictable to me as some of the hints came into the half of the book .
But, I must say if you want to enjoy the vibes of the Gujarati family along with the romance of our protagonist, Ghanshyam Shastri, busy solving the case and finding out the bitter truth of a pure relationship, which is always meant to be pure.
Then go for it..
A short, compact book for suspense lovers.
I love to recommend this book to the age of 18years or above as it contains sexual scenes .
Thanks for your valuable time .

If I ask you something what genre of movies you like to watch ? You would answer action, drama, adventure ,gloomy, or you would say light hearted movies .Am I right? Same thing goes with books. Choosing your genre of book is the first and most important part of starting your journey to read books. Now you can go to the shop or our one and only Amazon and purchase your book according to your taste.
I must say don’t be intimated by the total number of pages in the book. When you deep dive into the book then pages count will never intimidate you . Still ,you are a new to reading books then I must say you should go for books less than 100 pages or even some books are available less than 50 pages . Make a goal of reading at least 5pages in a day or 10 pages in a day according to your choice and time. And here you are doing great ! You have started reading books.
Now ,the third step is to read book according your level. Just think ,you are reading a book and you are running into lots of complicated words in the story, then ,what would happen? You would end up leaving book. Right? So, read a book according to your level of English or any other language book. Children’s book are different because there level is different . So ,as yours .Go for a book according to your level.
4. When to read books
Now, it’s a high time to decide When to read your favorite book? While travelling or before hitting the pillow or in the morning? I just love to pick up my book whenever I am free .No particular time for bingeing books . It’s your call now when do you like to binge book?
5.Look for the recommendation
I am sure a bookworm can recommend you a better book to start. So, what are you waiting for go and search on Instagram, book blogs or you can checkout on Facebook. You can checkout my page on Instagram for book recs at @reet.kalra.75.
6. Native/English language
It is not necessary to read book in English only. You can choose your book of your native language also. I started reading books to improve my English, So, I went for English language. It’s upto you which language would you choose English Or Native ? The more you enjoy ,the more you read and the more knowledge you gain .
7. Have a cup of Coffee or Tea with book
Take a hot piping cup of coffee or tea along with good book and enjoy your read. How soothing it is! It freshens and brightens up your day. The day will be definitely mix of knowledge along with your chores . What else do you want ?
8. Say DNF to book
If you buy a book and you are not convinced to reading that particular book then please don’t read further. It will just end up you leaving hatred towards the book. Buy or borrow a new book and start reading.
I hope I have elaborated on all the basic steps to move forward with reading books. If you have convinced, then go and grab your book, and yes, Let me know in the comment section what genre you love the most?
