#428 : Glitter and Gloss by Vibha Batra : Review

Glitter cover, interesting blurb and a story about a makeup artist – The book has “pick me up” written all over it. Misha, our protagonist, is a Make-up artist and has a penchant for picking up wrong guys. She is a proverbial blabber mouth and is fun to be around. She falls heads over heels for the smoldering hot jewelry business man Akshay. Things suddenly go for a toss when their families meet. Opposites attract, but can opposites live with each other?

This story was one fun and light hearted read, almost along the lines of a coming of age story. The story is realistic and captures the practical problems which arise when two people from different culture decide to get married. What would initially seem like a fairy tale would obviously morph into a nightmare when it comes to choice of habits.  The writing was good enough for a book of this genre. The writer either knows a lot about make up or has done her research well as a lot of MAC products were mentioned in the book. For someone who knows nothing about makeup this irked me a bit. I do understand that the character is a makeup artist but then, I couldn’t help but feel a bit lost. The characterization was balanced and each character had the right depth. I felt there were too many secondary characters though.
MY SAY: Light hearted and fun read.
