Book Review – She Walks in Moonlight by Jennifer Silverwood

She Walks in Moonlight is a beautiful story. This is the first book I’m reading from Jennifer Silverwood. The lead character Zwezda Danica Pavlova comes to USA from Russia at the age of 8. She meets Adam King in her new school. They become best friends instantly. They grow together but Zwezda’s bad past experiences and her gypsy mother influence push her to leave everything she loves behind and run to Russia. She comes back to USA to help her brother who is suffering from cancer to raise his kids. She faces Adam again after 10 years who is a changed man now and no more a high school teenager whom she left behind. The story is about how she finds her hope again and how she takes the leap of faith in spite of her fears.

The hero Adam is a wonderful character. He is a strong man who fights all odds and stands on his feet again after a terrible accident and successfully serves the army. The story makes you believe in second chances and love. I totally enjoyed this story and finished reading it in just a day. The characters are very wonderfully built by the author. Almost everyone in the story is wonderful beings, from kids to the adults. This is a very good book for everyone. Loved it, totally!

My Review:

Mrs Murray’s Ghost by Emily-Jane Hills is a cute story. I volunteered to read the ARC copy and review it. I wouldn’t call it a horror story because, after reading this book, I started believing that ghosts can be friendly too given a chance. It’s kind of a fairytale with brownies, friendly ghosts and a dream world with witches, dragons and many more. I totally enjoyed the fantasy world. I wouldn’t mind reading this story to my daughter. The story revolves around a 10 year old girl named Mary. When her family moves into a huge mansion-like house, they experience strange banging and unusual activity in their home. Mary meets her brownie friends who are stuck in the same house for over centuries far away from their homeland. Mary is the person who is going to rescue them and help Mrs. Murray, too.

When Mary falls ill, her brownie friends and Mrs. Murray’s ghost enter Mary’s dream world to help her get better. The story is very engaging. The characters are well established. It’s a fresh flavor to read. This is a book for almost all age groups. I totally enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to my friends.

Book Review – Sidney Sheldon’s ‘The Silent Widow’ by Tilly Bagshawe

Just now put down the book Sidney Sheldon’s ‘The Silent Widow’ by Tilly Bagshawe. This is a gripping thriller like any other Sidney Sheldon’s novel. The book is very engaging and I couldn’t put it aside until I turned the last page. The book revolves around a psychologist named Nikki Roberts. People around her start dropping dead including her husband, her patients and others who are close to her. Nikki turns to police but feels let down by the slow pace of their investigation. She then hires a Private Investigator to crack the mystery. When that PI comes close to the truth, the root of all the series of murders and a cold case of a young American girl’s disappearance in Mexico City a decade ago, he ends up dead, too. All in all, it turns out, a drug lord named Luis is behind all these murders.

The novel shows a huge ring of drug cartels, drug lords donating money for addicts for cover-ups, police turning a blind eye to all this racket in return for quick money and addicts who want to come out of their addiction but fall back into the mess deeper failing to come clean. The story shows how one cannot trust people around them nowadays. There is betrayal, there is hurt, there is rage, there is letting go, there is hope and a lot more. I very much liked the pace. As expected, perfect detailing and well-executed characters. The final twist was unexpected but I so liked it. I always loved the way how Mr. Sheldon creates female lead characters. Very strong, very intelligent and very independent. I so much adore him for that.

All in all, this is a must read if you are a lover of thriller, psychological, fiction genre.

Book Review – ‘A Gathering of Friends’ by Ruskin Bond

I read ‘A Gathering of Friends’ by Ruskin Bond just now. Its a book with short stories personally picked by Mr. Bond from his previous writings. This would call this book a bouquet of short stories with each story resembling a unique flower in a bouquet. This is very easy to read. Lovely, in fact. I would recommend it to every age group, including kids. The stories majorly are set up in different Himalayan villages. Being an Indian, I’ve not heard of those villages myself. Each story is unique in itself. I heard Mr. Bond in one interview, saying that, a critic called his short stories plotless and Mr. Bond also agrees with him mentioning that his stories are majorly about the character. After reading this book, I can’t agree more with Mr. Bond. His characters are very well defined and established and the story simply goes along with the character. I didn’t see the need for the plot, as such. The book is very refreshing, given it is a collection of stories from the times of early days of independent India. The stories seemed ageless.

I loved all the stories and ‘The Blue Umbrella’ is my favorite in particular. The details were ravishing and I felt myself walking the through the streets of Mussorie and many other remote Himalayan villages. I totally enjoyed reading this book. There are many stories which I can relate myself to. Some are about friends, some are about kindness, while others are about first crushes and first kisses.
