Take 2: Second chance at happiness is Ruchi Singh’s Debut book. It is the story of Priya and Abhimanyu set in Delhi and Gurgaon.
Priya Verma, works as a software programmer in Delhi. Having lost her mother when she was six years old and her father when she is college, she marries her boyfriend Sameer, to get away from her relatives in Kanpur. Little does she realize that when she is studying and later, working, Sameer robs her of her inheritance and cheats on her all the while pretending that he is looking for a break in Bollywood. He wants her money, which she does not have, and they end up arguing, always.
Aditi is her best friend since childhood and she meets Komal in her office and the three become best friends sharing everything.
Abhimanyu Malhotra, 28, works for Star Communications. He has had a happy childhood in Chandigarh, where his parents stay and are always lining up prospective brides for him, whenever he goes there on vacation. Rahul is his best friend. Abhimanyu meets Priya in a pub and is smitten by her.
Priya asks Sameer for a divorce and files a case. In the interim, Abhimanyu also has problems at office. And all’s well that ends well.
The book has all the ingredients of a hindi movie: romance, drama, suspense and even, a villain. I loved the story a lot. The characters are well developed and the plot is quick paced. I loved it when Priya stalks Sameer with the help of Bobby.
A must read if you love romance.
