#THE LOVE DETECTIVE IS A WITTY MAGICAL AND DELIGHTFUL #Love Detective is a witty magical and delightful The gorgeous portrayal of India and its culture will fascinate you and make you een to visit there I betIf you are in the mood for a romantic comedy with a different uniue twist this might be for you I was pretty disappointed with the first half of the book I ve enjoyed books by this author before but somehow this one isn t my cup of tea Ruby Miller s narration comes across as whiny overly dramatic and pathetic There I ve said it There were simply too many unwise and annoying things she did like overspending on useless souvenirs expecting the India train service to be luxurious and running away from Jack after spotting the ruby ring without clearing her doubts And it s not that she s a teenager The plot picks up halfway and I enjoyed reading about her impromptu exploration with Rocky and Billy I like the sound of Pushkar Sadly though I didn t feel convinced that Jack and Ruby could fall in love with each other The author doesn t really paint a clear picture of his personality apart from him having a sassy mouth I didn t feel a connection between those two And what are the chances that she meets the lady and her daughter who are connected to Jack On an airplane I now the author wove in a bit of magic
and destiny stuff but the idea doesn tdestiny stuff but the idea doesn t well in the story Lastly I find it uite ridiculous that Amy and Shine didn t seek advice from religious leaders for their apparent ill luck in their would be marriage Ruby had to fly to the rescue using google I don t now what can I say #I LIKE THE AUTHOR BUT NOT RUBY MILLER FOR #like the author but not Ruby Miller For first read of 2014 I am happy to announce all upcoming books need to be afraid Alexandra Potter s new release The Love Detective is not only a fabulous romance novel but an inspiring cultural whirlwind You start not really nowing what you re going to get with the book but or less straight away you are engrossed and captivated in Indian sun and a delightful tale of love friendship family and fate Heroine Ruby Miller has you eating out of her hands after a few chapters Badly heartbroken by a cheating fianc the week of her wedding has left her physically and emotionally crushed as a romance author this isn t too good for her writing Timid organised and with a passion for Pyjamas you connect with her like she s one of your own friends that you want to make happy again Her one liner s have you in stitches my personal favourite being when describing her arse in a bikini Sags like rice pudding in a string bag is genius It really is an excellent book Fast sharp witty and as it s the start of a new series I am seriously looking forward to book two A must read for 2014 Okay so first things first let me tell you why I chose this book It was available in the library near my place I have never heard of this author and I am a little skeptical when it comes to reading romance novels as the title suggested so I turned to Goodreads for guidance It showed 4 stars and I took to read the blurb Goa adventure and runaway bride these stood out and it instantly piued my curiosity I now that shouldn t have been the case but as I said earlier I get a little doubtful when choosing romance related storiesThis book is a cute love story even though the protagonist is far off from thinking of romance The author gets you to believe in destiny everything that happens to us is pre destined and will take its course at the appropriate timeThe diverse elements of India and the protagonist s journey make you feel like you are a part of the trip Be it the Goan beaches the train ride the ro.

Serendipity is the word that I would employ to describe this book This book is magical and is full of fantastical romantic vibe which I loved a lot My fascination over this book mostly comes from the description after description of India the mystical land of nature and gorgeous diverse culture The author Alexandra Potter did an amazing job of telling the story of the heroine Ruby
S Journey To Take Back Her Old Self And Believejourney to take back her old self and believe love once again Her visit to India to recharge her battery after a major heartbreak seems to get off on the right foot in the beginning She relishes the relaxing time at the poolside doing nothing other than reading or leisurely lying on #the beach as well as strolling through the shopping alley Everything #beach as well as strolling through the shopping alley Everything perfect and works well for her However on the day she and her sister Amy are supposed to leave for London Amy pulls a stunt of no show telling Ruby that she and Shine a dazzlingly good looking yoga instructor are eloping Ruby who has become jaded and lost her faith in true love her fiance turned out to be a two timer adamantly believes the marriage is a total mistake and resolves to go after Amy and talks her into giving up on marrying Shine But it is when things start to go southAs I mentioned earlier the depiction of India is very detailed and enthralling Nicely and tactfully blending the mystical and magical element which I think can only be attributed to India into the main plot it comes across uite convincing that India opens up Ruby s mind and rejuvenates her to the extent she s ready to believe in love once again The interactions that she had with the locals are all so delightful to follow and I liked Ruby s voice a lot She can be a bit stubborn and tends to jump the gun yet she is also witty and funny On top of that she is very sisterly Typical big sister type always protective of her baby sister while Ruby herself tends to make stupid mistakes A LOTHer transformation through her stay in India is certainly the highlight of this book Although I did find the depiction of her change of her perspectives toward love is not fully grounded I didn t get to see what exactly brought the change to her as far as I m concerned the solid and strong writing peppered with humor made this book even entertaining such a fun page turner I read this book in only three sittings which is uite a rarity for me That speaks volumes how I got immersed in the book Novertheless that s not to say I didn t have issues with this book I actually had some niggles especially in the romance department First Jack The love interest in this book He is supposed to be sexy and attractive but I didn t find him attractive AT ALL It might have been because I was primarily listening to the audiobook I m not saying the narration is bad it was pretty good actually but Jack s voice was a bit young and didn t deliver the sexiness that the book claims he has In addition to that pretty much everything about Jack is shrouded in mystery I got to Dead Giveaway know hardly anything about him other than he is American and came to India toeep a promise which he wouldn t even divulge eitherI suppose not getting to now him enough could be the reason why I didn t care much about him Next the romance Yes the book clearly says Ruby is totally obsessed with Jack and is lust after him during their stay in
#Tajmahal But After That I Didn T #but after that I didn t any spark or chemistry between them Their romance ind of fell flat for me thus the development in the latter part didn t sit well with me It wasn t just convincingagain as far as I m concerned And oh a typical hasty judgment on Ruby s side seriously how could she possibly reach such a ludicrous conclusion Frankly I was put off by it a bit and I felt my interest in this book deflate pretty uickly That said though the story does pick up in the end all the mystery surrounding Jack the reas.
