I stumbled upon this author Sunanda J. Chatterjee just by chance and this was my sheer good luck to read her book
Sunanda writes so beautifully that her story touches the heart straight away and then keeps on weaving a cucoon of love till the book ends. There is so much comfort and joy in her book. I read this book during one of the turbulent times of my life and Sunanda's writing was like a soothing balm to the soul. Her writing left me with hope and gave me inner happiness to read a beautiful l

This author is fast becoming one of my absolute favourites. Not only is she incredibly prolific, she also writes in a variety of genres and each and every story of hers that I have read, in all the various genres, has stayed with me, long after the book has finished. This one too is no exception. I absolutely loved this book. I have had a hectic week - and the best way to get through it was via this book. I had it to look forward to every evening and it got me through the packed days. I love thi ...more

I am absolutely in love with Sunanda Chatterjee stories and she is hands down one of the most brilliant storytellers I've come across. She knows how to weave eloquently strong plots and effortlessly intricate across multiple genres leaving the readers spellbound and seamlessly pulls the readers in from the get go and this one is no different . Her plots and characters are always well developed and as a reader you get to truly understand what the characters are thinking or why they are acting or ...more

Having read and enjoyed some other books by Sunanda Chatterjee like “The Blue House in Bishop”, I was excited about her new release. And I’ll admit that a hot police offer sounded pretty enticing too…

I wasn’t disappointed in the story, the—once again—authentic and well-fleshed out characters, and the glimpses of the setting. It was lovely to see that Laura had an Indian friend (I’m very interested in her story), and that Laura’s father turned out to be not what I had expected. Laura herself was

How often we come across incidents or people who carry the burden of punishment for the sins committed by their parents? Whether it is a petty mistake or a serious crime, society never allows the off-springs to forget that their parent/s did commit the mistake and they should pay for it.

Sins of the Father is the first part of Wellington Estate series and main protagonists are Harrison McNamara and Laura Carson; both suffering from the after-effects of their father’s deeds.

But what happens when

A story with a beautiful plot, well developed characters, written in a simple language which keeps the reader glued to the story. There is romance and a lot of suspense. The author has described the feelings of both the protagonists. Even the secondary characters have a role to play in the story. The story has a family drama, romance and suspense. Though the story has a suspense element in it, the romance also moves in parallel. The story is fast paced and unputdownable. The bond between Juhi an ...more

I became a fan of Sunanda Chatterjee when I read her book “Fighting for Tara”, which is a super awesome book. So it was but natural for me to wonder how “Sins of the Father” would compare. And though “Fighting for Tara” will always remain one of my favourite books, this one did not disappoint.

None of her books are just romance. And this one with its suspense and psychological tinge makes for a very interesting read.

Society can be very unforgiving and often children are made to pay for the sins

I had read one of the previous works by the author and had loved the treatment of her stories. So I had to read this new release and let me tell you, this story did not disappoint me. In fact it took my appreciation for her work a notch higher.
Sunanda has a way of telling stories in which you can find so many elements mixed together in such a way that each element has its justifiable place.
This is the story of Laura and detective Harrison. It's a very sweet romance with a good dose of family dra

A delightful read!
Sins of father haunting once life is as painful as it can get. From love to pain and from pain back to love is a journey the author weaves in this book.
As always Sunanda Chatterjee takes you through unexpected twists and turns before you get to have the happy ending. The story builds up the emotions and anxiety. The troubles and pain the characters go through are brought out so well with its pulsating build up, and the beautiful culmination of the journey is so fit for the stor

This is book one of the Wellington Estates Series but can be read as a standalone. The streets bring two people together. Police officer Harrison McNamara, the former Wellington Estates heir and Laura Carson, a psychologist and model. Sunanda has done a beautiful job with this book. It's so well written and the characters are amazing. I felt like I was right there with them. The book had a lot of substance, was fast paced and full of surprises. Danger, murder, suspense and ghosts of the past kee ...more

What an intriguing story this was. Mystery, suspense, danger, revenge, betrayal, hope and love all rolled into one book. What more could we ask for. Sunanda has created realistic characters with minds of their own but with the need to find someone to share their life with. I enjoyed this story and would recommend it to those who like a twist to their books. Well done Sunanda.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest voluntary review.

Sins of the Father is a good read. I can say that the story is well thought and well written. The characters are well-developed but I had a hard time connecting with the female characters. The romance is the right amount and the suspense is also there. The plot is relatively fast-paced and it is easy to read.
I recommend!
