The journey to seek justice and unearth the truth is very hard fought and lonely. Twice Blessed at best captures the journey of such a kind. A fast-paced thriller that thoroughly grips the reader's mind, it has all the elements of loyalty and betrayal, sensitivity and imperviousness, chaos and confusions, and grit and give ups.

The thriller gives a bird's eye view of the most prominent issue, yet considered a taboo and an understatement, that men face. The author has managed to carefully prod th

The title of the book 'Twice Blessed' is interesting and gives the reader a very vague hint of the story.

The book cover is very simple but very mysterious. Image of two women, one in black and white, one in color that too in puzzle pieces style might hint the reader that the sto

A one-time good read. (All mysteries are one-time reads per se.)
The narration is good. The spirit of fickle-minded defiant youth is captured well in Tam's character. The author is good at throwing us, at least me, off the scent of the murderer. For a moment there, I thought there's a (view spoiler)

I thank Rani RamKrishnan for the free copy of the book .

1 . A racy thriller. You are right into the plot within first few pages .
2. Author does not waste your time with unnecessary descriptions. Plot takes shape and moves quite fast.
3. A breezy read for about 60% of the book
4. Suspense is well carried till the end with plot twists
5. Appreciate author for the job as this being her first novel .

1. The characters are two dimensional. They lack depth . Consistency in personalities

This is a story of six friends, who are in college and often hang out together. One of them has committed suicide and Tamannah, one of the girls, decides to investigate after the case is closed as suicide. The story takes up many social issues prevalent in Indian society and weaves an exciting tale.
I laud the attempt. But there is tremendous scope for improvement. For instance, I found it too wordy, could fare much better as a short story. At times, I found the narration to be over exaggerated.

Frankly speaking i wasn't sure about reading this because it looked boring to me but there's a saying 'Don't judge book by its cover' so, i was wrong and i'm grateful for that. Its not for everyone though but it contains reality that society should be aware of. Message was clear and out don't lose hope and more importantly trust your parents, siblings and gang.

Thank you and Be happy

I thank Rani Ramakrishnan for sending me a free soft copy of her 'Twice Blessed' for review, and it was a pleasure to read. You need to read the entire book to appreciate the aptness of the title. Well-written with young adults as the target audience, it builds up the suspense and has the standard ingredients but no smut or porn. Some minor editing corrections are needed, else it is a good read.

"Twice Blessed" is different from the usual suspense novels. In fact, the culprit gets known in the middle of the book. It is about the battle that the chief protagonist wages against the world at large to bring him to book. Pretty absorbing though the end is a trifle abrupt.

It has all the markings of a good thriller but fell a little flat in the end and how the characters evolved. Kudos to the author for highlighting such a sensitive issue so maturely and covering all different angles of the same.
