In Love with Simran | Book Review
Book: In Love with Simran
Author: Kulpreet Yadav
Sanjana’s best friend at college is murdered. She was in love with a business tycoon named Nik Sethi, and Sanjay is certain that he killed her. In an effort to find proof, she decides to get close to him.Good looking and rich, Nik falls in love with Sanjana instantly, but a month later, when he accidentally discovers her real agenda, he throws her out of his life. Determined to nail him, Sanjana’s desperation exceeds all limits when she realizes that she too, like her friend, has fallen in love with a killer. After she escapes an attack one night, Sanjana quits college and goes into hiding. Now her only ambition is to punish the killer and her only weapon is her body. In a last, desperate attempt, she uses herself as bait and pursues her best plan. There are only two options: she becomes a victim or she becomes a victor. Through the story of Sanjana and Nik, In Love with Simran explores the boundaries of the basic instincts of young; love, sex, trust, and survival.
The blurb suggests it is a mystery genre; however, the cover and title are more inclined towards romantic tale. The puzzle of killer is lost somewhere in transit and major focus in on the love story. The flow of story, narration, and language used are all very easy going. I would have personally preferred if the story plot stayed put at the thriller aspect. There were some parts of the story which did not connect well to the plot like the revelation of killer. To conclude, it is a onetime read which will grab your attention. The character developments could clearly be distinguished.
