What best can happen to you while traveling from Pune to Mumbai? "Goan Chase: Take Three Mysteries" happened to me. This short mystery plugged me so tightly that I didn't know when Borivali stop came. For its genre, the book has done very good job.

The story started with three teenagers' vacation trip to Goa. As blurb mentioned, kids were excited about fun filled holidays. Jai along with his classmates Nirvan and Ayesha went to Jai's aunt Ms. Sheila Walia's beach villa to Goa. Sheila had recently

Crisp and crunchy 122 pages.

For some mysterious reasons, books set in Goa, gain a strong affinity from me. Goa + Mystery, both of these words had already triggered the curiosity neurons in my brain, easy-to-carry attribute of the book, only nourished my already bubbling up enthusiasm and I was full-on ready to have a bumper ride with my seat-belts on. Just the title was enough to make me like it instantly.

Vacation trips don't turn out to be as effortless as they were during the planning. Tourin

Actual rating 3.5/5

This is one of the easy reads of this year. You can finish this in 2 hours. It is a story about three friends who seek for adventure during their summer vacation. They probably get more than what they want. I don't want to reveal much about the story as it's a short read.
A couple of things before you read this. This is teenage story and meant for that age or as they say "YA" category. You won't like it unless you read it like a teenager. The simplicity of the novel is someth

I enjoy reading different genre no matter of age. Therefore I didn’t think twice when choosing “Goan Chase” and I am really glad I did. It is a young adult mystery, the first in a series, and I must say it's great. I enjoyed seeing how three fourteen year old engaged in solving a mystery that at moments put their lives in danger. Despite the initial belief in their personal deficiencies, through the happening they used and proved their unique talents. The plot kept my attention and surprised me ...more

As the name clearly says, the story revolves around 3 teenager friends - Jai, Nirvaan and Ayesha, who try to resolve a mystery in order to save Jai's ancestral home. The plot is quite predictable. It's short book and an easy read.

The book is ideal for kids as it gives some good messaging like "everyone has weakness, but one should never lose hope. Instead, one should recognize his/her strength and focus on getting a solution."

My thanks to the author / publisher for the giveaway copy of this nice little book. Goan Chase is a young adult mystery, the series starter, and it's quite promising. Three fourteen year olds, each with some unique talents, also with certain deficiencies, team up to solve a mystery that threatens their stay at, and any future visits to, an idyllic goan villa. In the process, they come close to their death, face their vulnerabilities, and overcome them. There's not much scope for proper developme ...more

What follows is an honest review and I am glad to have had the opportunity to review it.

Going by the name one can incur that it is crime thriller. It follows the story of Jai, Ayesha and Nirvaan, three teenagers who are in Goan in an ancestral bungalow that belongs to Ms Walia, Jai's maternal aunt. The house is cursed, there is possibly an evil presence lurking. And no sooner do we start reading we are gripped by the story. What begins as a minor accident turns into a series of events and it cu

When I started reading this book I presumed the story and characters to revolve around a juvenile plot considering it’s a children’s fiction. However, once I started reading
I realized it was very well able to tease the cognitive abilities of an adult
reader equally. This was surely a page turner. I finished the book in one sitting as I couldnt not wait for the mystery to get resolved.

The author has put in a lot of effort in building an unravelable plot where you can may keep guessing till the en

Received this short book through a Goodreads giveaway. An enjoyable afternoon read, a mystery geared to Young Adult readers. The first book in a new series in which three teenage friends use each other's strengths to solve the mystery. Has potential to become an enjoyable series.

The plot and pacing is good. Even after reading the blurb, it didn't feel like it was predictable, which is good. The are twist and turns in the story is intriguing and can readers will be easily drawn in, making it easy to devour this book in one sitting. 

At one point I was flipping back through earlier pages thinking I'd either missed something. The suspense is built throughout and compels you to keep on reading. The book kept me guessing many times but the end was pretty predictable.

I still remember the first story I penned. It was about a magical crystal ball and my very encouraging English teacher had made me read it out loud in front of the whole class. Since I was only six at that time, a block like stage fear didn't exist, and it was all fun and giggles.
Since I started reading and writing at a very young age, I had finished novelettes by the time I was a teenager (they'
