Book Review - Double Jeopardy

Before I begin the review, I’d like to give a highlight of my day on which I downloaded this book from Indireads, i.e. yesterday.

My day yesterday began at 5 am and consisted of 600 km travel through the day. It was supposed to end at 10 owing to a headache. At about 9.45, just checking mail before I slept, I decided to download the book from Indireads and prepare myself to read it the next day.

One the download was completed, my phone automatically opened the file for me to preview.

What began as preview of the book at 10 pm, ended at 1.30 am in completion of the book.

The write-up:
Sanya last saw the twins, Arth and Ansh Sharma, when she was ten years old. Now, all grown up, she has come looking for gentle Arth, the twin she has loved ever since she can remember. But instead, she is confronted with fiery Ansh, who is hell-bent on seducing her. And what’s worse, she can’t seem to stop herself from responding to him.
As she chases Arth and is chased by Ansh, Sanya finds herself on a crazy roller coaster ride with no way of getting off. How will she deal with these two very different men in her life? Will she be able to convince one twin that she loves the other?

My take:
The story is simply written and characters are nicely woven into the story. Each character plays his part well and the story keeps on edging you to read further. Sometimes it reminded me of romance of Mills andboons and some times emotions of Cecelia Ahern

A complete story, well rounded in 56 pages, Double Jeopardy is what I say a good light chick-read. I rate the book a 3 out of 5.

P.S. Thank you Sundari Venkatraman for sharing the book for review.

  1. Strangely enough, I've been seeing a lot of people either reading or reviewing this book :) Also love the new look of the blog. And you're forever travelling lovely lady. Take a break :)

    1. That's maybe because Sundari has offered the book for review. My blog says Thank you for the compliment ( I have some technical glitches with this though. Travelling is healthy, for me and for my blog. :D

  2. Same here. A lot of people seem to be reviewing this book. Come to think of it, a lot of the writers have recognized the potential of bloggers and are now leveraging the network :)
    Lovely theme for the blog, btw is it possible for me to minimize the dynamic popup bar which comes up each time I try to scroll down or up? I might sound ignorant when I ask this, but it keeps popping out each time I reach out to scroll...

    1. Seeta i am trying to see if i can do anything about it...

  3. Thank you for the review Sugandha. I am glad you liked my book
