Would she like to fall in love again? This is the question asked by the author in this book and then she tried her best to build a story around it. Nikita Singh is a pretty-faced Indian writer. She is known for known for contemporary novels with modern themes like love on social media, how to move on after break-up, falling in love many a time, etc. etc…
She has written many light and racy novels – all set in India – for light and young readers. Now, let’s see what’s new in her new novel Every Time It Rains. It is a sweet sequel to ‘Like A Love Song’, in which the story was narrated through Maahi’s point of view. Well, ‘Every Time It Rains’ is about Laila’s point of view, and also explores the inner soil and traits of this lonely intriguing character.
The first half of the book is about business deals and bakery business and cupcakes and cookies. But who knows the lass trying for a national level franchise is a heart-broken from within. Trying to still come up with the terms of life, thus she is extra focused on her work, probably a way to get away with old deeds and pains. Indeed, broken hearts can strive for anything – it itself is a motivational force within oneself, but you need to utilize that before believing in that.
Maahi, another character in the novel, a friend of her cannot understand the mystery wrapped around Laila. Nevertheless, they are good friends and business partners – aspiring and aiming for big bucks and big name. Things begin to stir up when a chirpy and dashing guy called JD confront Laila, and soon he becomes someone who inadvertently tries raking up her life, but no sooner than her past life grips her. She is in a tussle now: a tug-of-war like situation! Be it anything, the result is that they both begin feeling attracted to each other. Love stories start like this, right? The second love story of her life is all set to welcome her. Would she enter into it? Will she reconcile with the factor or the past will pull her back?
To know better of it, you need to read this extraordinary story of ordinary Laila. The pace of narration is good, but the writing part is slightly sloppy. Hope she overcomes her floppy prose in the coming books.
