From the author of Inconvenient Relations Simi K Rao!

If you enjoyed Inconvenient Relations, you’ll love The Accidental Wife, a new contemporary romance from Simi K. Rao.

Some accidents are meant to happen…

Dr. Rihaan Mehta is a brilliant young neurosurgeon who has no inclination for love or marriage. According to him wives and girlfriends are annoying accessories that one can do without. But when his mother dangles the sword over his head in classic Bollywood style, he succumbs, and sets out in search of a bride who would fit his ‘requirements’. But can Rihaan deal with what he gets instead?

Review: I rarely read e-books, but the title and the blurb made me inclined towards reading this book and I must say that I was not at all left disappointed with the book.

From the word go, the book sets up the pace nicely and increases slowly as you keep turning the pages. The characters are well defined generating enough pique at every stage to find out more about the characters in the story. The characterization is perfect and flows according to the plot. Although, it is a simple story but it never allows you to leave away from the grip that the narration creates. A narration that is simple yet humorous strikes the chord with me as it is difficult to be humorous at times. The author does a great job in succeeding at that which is what I really liked about in the book.

The language is simple to read and understand without any grammatical errors seen. The author has perfectly blended a good mix of emotions in the story and it has come out well. It is a roller-coaster ride while reading the book.

Overall: The Accidental Wife is a simple and well told story that keeps you entertained throughout the set of pages. It is a light afternoon book to read along with a cup of coffee to accompany you.

Ratings: 3.5/5*
