After a long time, I picked up a romance novel and am happy that it was not the same, old and boring kind of love story. The highlight of this book was the story revolving around food which was sufficient enough to catch the attention of this foodie reader. I enjoyed reading this book, give it 4 stars out of 5 and here is my review to it.
The protagonists, Rumana and Daniyal, did not happen to meet on a happy note. Rumana had quit her corporate job and wanted to live the life of an entrepreneur with her plan to set up a pastry shop. Meanwhile, Daniyal opened a pastry shop right next to her making a direct competition for Rumana. The set up sounds a bit filmy but how it has been narrated steals the show. There is lots of misunderstanding, confusion, fights amidst of love like every love story. And, there are even clashes on the professional front because both were the direct competitors of each other. Besides Rumana, Neharika, her business partner and friend also had an important role to play in the story. There are a few disturbances in the relationship between Neharika and Rumana as well as the story proceeds. To find out who wins between love and friendship in Rumana’s life, whether she could successfully postpone the marriage pressure on her by her family and more, you will have to read the book as I will not play a spoiler.
If you love reading romantic novels, you can go for this book. The narration is beautiful where the author seems to have an eye for detail while talking about the romantic tales as well as while describing the dishes and the ambience of the bakery. The characters did not seem too strong to me as they were a bit unrealistic, especially Daniyal. The plot is good with an element of business competitors making the storyline stronger. The cover is pleasing and gave me the movie feels but the title was too simple for me.
