Unexpectedly Adorable.

I wasn't expecting this novel to be that good, that I would be gonna like it. I got this book from Giveaway contest from the Publishers in the exchange of the honest reviews; but from last 2-3 books from same giveaway disappointed me, So I was having same prejudice for this too. But Nope. its quite a good, clean and like-able book.

I really enjoyed the book though there was bit of confusion while shifting of the different times in-between. Blending of two different periods c

I enjoyed this little romance novel by Piyushi Dhir. I really like the cute illustrations at the start of each chapter too. Looking forward to reading #1.5 to find out the alternate ending. I won In Search of Love through Goodreads Giveaways.

Review :


In Search of Love – author Piyushi Dhir’s debut novel (also my College’s alumna, yay!) – is a short, easy, fluid read, that sort of reminds me of a web-series – fun and fast paced. It follows our two main characters, Parth and Ayesha, who meet and fall in love within a span of seven days.
“Till where could she explain it as friendship? Was she doing something wrong?”

The plot might seem improbable but it is not. They are neighbours who happen to meet each other on the terra

No clichés. No dramas. No fairy-tale. No "Knight in the shining armor"
This is all I wish to read in a romance novel. And yes, I'm convinced.
This was a very quick read as I finished the book in a couple of hours. All these hours, I found myself relaxing under the captivation of the book.
And I have to mention that this is my first "goodreads-giveaway reads" and this would hold a special place always.

This might not be the best books that I've ever read. But still, sometimes, all we need is a lit

Genre : Romance/Fiction
Publisher: pblishing
Year of Publication: 2016

When I read the description of the book, it seemed like an interesting read, but I did not expect too much of it. Honestly, I thought that it was a thin book and I could read it fast enough to put the review up on time, but I was pleasantly surprised with what I found in the book.

In Search of Love is a short, romantic story that traces the story of Ayesha and Parth as they both try to find love.
Ayesha is a travel-writer, and her character is really loveable. Although the author doesn't do much to show the side of her job, it still makes me happy that she didn't chose a common job and chose something different. Ayesha's character was very relatable to me, and I'm sure it will be to many others too who have had bad relationships i

‘In Search Of Love’ is author Piyushi Dhir’s first of many novels. As the name suggests, the book revolves around the two main protagonists Ayesha & Parth and their feelings for each other. To begin with I liked the cover of the book which depicts a couple under an umbrella with cute heart shaped illustrations above them which is quite in keeping with the theme of the book.

The plot of the novel is solid and the characters are clearly etched out. Without revealing too much, the story in a nutshel

The books start with the story of Ayesha who is a travel writer and is in Ahmedabad for a small break to meet her parents. Like every Indian parent, her parents too want her to get married and settled, but Ayesha was in search of true love. Then he meets Parth and the story takes the turn.

This book is a sweet, simple love story where they found each other yet lost each other. Will their love find their way? The story beautifully describes how Ayesha left Parth as she didn't want to lose his frie

In Search of Love is a delicately handled romance novel by Piyushi Dhir. It brings out the fact that all stumbling blocks that hurl into a relationship between two people, actually pile up somewhere to become stepping stones to a beautiful life they are meant to share together. The narrative of the story is fluid, sprinkled with graceful verses every now and then. The journey of the protagonists through some fascinating cities across the world like Ahmedabad, London and Amsterdam, only to discov ...more
It's the kind of book you'd like to read on a sunny Sunday afternoon when all you need is something short, sweet and happy. A powerful story is one that keeps you hooked. With my short attention span, this one really did! While you'd be eager to know what'll happen next, you'll also be forming a parallel story in your mind and thinking about varied possibilities of each situation. If someone has ever made you feel special, made you smile when everything else was going wrong, made you do things y ...more

A gripping novel that I had to read from cover to cover. This was a fast paced story that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Spanning two continents, the narration kept me turning pages till the very end. Really looking forward to reading more books from Piyushi Dhir.
