To be honest I was skeptical abt reading this book. Because the description made me doubt if I would like it or not although I have read other books by Preeti Shenoy. I was worried if this book would match up with all the other books written by her. But I *loved* reading every bit of the book. It literally felt I was walking on the places they were describing and the food and the bond between the characters. It's a 360 pages book and I finshed it in one sitting. Irrespective of you having or having not read Preetu Shenoy before you'll love this book.
