One tequila, 2 tequilas…

Author: Supriya Parulekar

Publisher: Gargi Publishers


Blurb:

There was a handsome young man

And a gorgeous young girl.

They were never meant to fall in love!

For the girl… there was happily never after!

For the boy… he had failed miserably in matters of the heart!

Until one day… their paths crossed, fates met!

Love happened, just once and then forever…

Once upon a Love!

Positive Points:

Cover of the book: One word that came to my mind, when I thought about describing the cover of One tequila, 2 tequilas. is Tempting!  Amol Karambe has done a great job indeed.

Title of the book: Catchy!

Characterization: Something that I LOVED to the core in the book.

1) Kosha – A dreamer, photographer, someone who was born to love.

2) Tanvi (Tanu) – Everyone needs a friend like her in all the phases of life, when world turns cruel a friend like her soothes the soul. I loved her favorite dialogue i.e. life can never be dull around you.

3) Siddhartha – He’s my crush for now *Devil’s Grin*

4) Dhruv – I would tag him as a sweetheart.

Narration: I had built high expectations when I went through author’s Bio sketch and I must say, she lived up to my expectations. Narration is the best part of One tequila, 2 tequilas by Supriya Parulekar. Author has so brilliantly described characters and incidents in the book that I literally hate Harsh & Nalini for being jerks. I pity Mita, I loved Tanu & Dhruv. I admired Siddhartha & Kosha.

Story Line: We cannot say the story line was fresh and had something new in it, but there was something in the story that kept me hooked to end up the book in one go.

Negative Points:

1) Story Line: No doubt, I enjoyed reading the story of Kosha, but I couldn’t find anything fresh in story. We all have heard or read such story before.

2) Expected plot: The story lacked the suspense factor, an essential factor to keep a reader hooked to the book is the feeling of knowing what’s more in store. Story of One tequila, 2 tequilas lacked this factor.

Conclusion: 

A light read!

If you are in search of a book that would make you believe in goodness, karma and love, you should read One tequila, 2 tequilas. This book will make you believe in a phrase – Everything is going to be alright in the end, if not, that’s not the end. An expected plot it has, but the description done by the author, will force you to read it till the end. You would be forced to blush while reading Siddhartha and Kosha’s journey of love and romance.

I would Recommend this book to those who love to read stories with happy endings. If you’re in mood to read something that’s full of romance and passion, this book is for you.

All the very best to the author for her future endeavors.

P.s. Thank you Mr. Pulkit Gupta (Publisher at Gargi Publishers) for sending me this book in return of a genuine review.
