#687 : Take a Chance on Me (Sehgal Family & Friends Book 1) By Sapna Bhog : Review




Spending time with cousins while pigging on food and being doted by grandparents are experiences unique to Indian kids who grew up before the era of digitization set in leading to nuclear families. That environment of being around people effortlessly inculcates good traits in humans which are hard to be taught other wise. The fabric of many works of fiction set in Indian and written by Indians are based on these experiences. This book turned out to be one such classic example.

In the story, the protagonist, Kabier Sehgal takes over his grandfather's business. He suspects a leak of information as he begins losing deals which would ideally  have materialized. He is weary and suspects Keya Kaira who holds a key position in the company. Typical romantic drama unfolds.

The book is a simple and perfect romance. The characterization is very rich and well thought out. However, the plot as it is doesn't deliver the surprise it is meant since the story turned almost predictable midway. I wish the writer put a wee bit more effort to make it a little more unpredictable. The writing is fluid and makes you stay with the book.

A perfect romance/mystery to curl up to and devour. I would certainly pick up rest of the series.

Do buy this book on Amazon
