“In Love with Simran” by Kulpreet Yadav is a romance thriller where Sanjana’s best friend Simran was murdered. Sanjana doubts Simran’s boyfriend Nik and try to pursue him to make him accept his doings.
But Sanjana and Nik fell for each other. And her quest to find Simran’s killer comes to a conclusion that Nik’s mother is the killer.
At first story progresses as a genuine thriller with all acts and plans in place, but then after sometime, Nik’s relationship with Sanjana subsides the main motive of story as to who killed Simran. What started out as quest for truth turns into a romance story.
The plot of the story is compromised by this transformation. There were many loose ends and story didn’t meet my expectations as a thriller. Deaths of Ruby and Pathan still went unexplained as to why were they killed. And climax was somewhat disturbing because it didn’t connect to story.
Characters were written very well. They fit their roles perfectly. Narrative was ohkay, no technical language was used.
Cover of the book is beautiful and tells that it’s a romance novel. Title too suggests the same thing but the story didn’t do justice with it.
All in all, it was an okay book to read but it didn’t keep me hooked for a long time.
Title : 6/10
