Book Review : Soulmates, By Chance by Heenashree Khandelwal

I received this book as a giveaway at Goodreads.com. When I received the book and read the back cover blurb I was hoping this was not one of the books with a typical love story and surprisingly it was not!
Wow....this one is quite a page turner...a different story for a change and with lots of twists and turns.



Soulmates, by chance is the story of Rakshit and Avani. Rakshit who belongs to a rich family and was a spoilt brat before he left for the US after an incident which he didnt know would haunt him for life. Avani is the sweet, studious and straight forward girl who wants to study and support her family but her mother wants her to get married and settle down.

Eventually Rakshit happens to come to India for a project and one look at Avani at a party and he falls head over heels in love with her. He does get married to her but Avani gets to know about his past and things are not too good between them.

The rest of the story is how Rakshit tries to prove himself innocent. The story was a page turner but there are some parts that I would really not agree upon. Apart from the fact that even after knowing Rakshit's past Avani quite easily forgives him and a few grammatical errors here and there, the book was good. For a first book Heenashree has done a good job.  

I would rate the book 3.5/5.

  1. Hi

    I looked for your email address , but couldn't find it and decided to leave you a message on this post. Glad to have found the blog of a fellow book-lover. My second novel, 'The crossover Year' was recently published I am having a giveaway on goodreads . It would be great if you could join in .. What's the book about?

    "Meet Sri Anuprabha, aka Anu, a twenty-nine year-old banker who is terrified of entering her thirties. She dreams of quitting her job at the bank, sporting yoga pants and traipsing around the world. Her world turns upside down when things go awry and she is faced with the prospect of spending her days watching Tamil serials. She comes up with a five-point plan for reclaiming her life back before she hits the big 30. But things are never as simple as drawing up a flowchart in real life, are they? Especially with a ghastly recession rearing its ugly head. Anu bumbles through the corridors of domesticity and travels on a fun-filled roller coaster ride in a bid to discover her passion in life. Along the way, she meets new people, experiences crazy things and learns some hard lessons in marriage, friendship, parenting and life."
