The story is set in the time when Bhuj was hit with a natural calamity. Many people died and the city was destroyed. Many Medical Camps were set in with doctors coming from different cities to help people of Bhuj. Sonal and Tejas both met each other in the medical camp after many years, but the spark of love was still there between them. But Sonal was not their to find love but to find her missing best friend Smita but as we all know love happens at the most unexpected time and in the most unexpected way. After being separated for years, they found themselves attracted towards each other but there was a person who was jealous of them. She tried breaking them up by creating a rift between them. Will their love survive the test? Will they be together again? Will Sonal be able to find her friend?
The author is able to describe the destruction caused by the earthquake in Bhuj so vividly and I actually felt so bad for the people who lost everything because of the calamity. The story was a bit dull. The narration was smooth but sometimes the story felt dragged. The language used by the author is easy and understandable. The book is slow paced.
Recommended for the romance lovers.

The title of the book ‘Heart Quake’ is different and hints to the reader the story about feelings and emotions.
The cover image of the book is an abstract art of a couple swinging holding a single rope with a heart-shaped image in the background and cracks all over the main background giving a clue about the emotional heartbreaks in the story.
The story is set up during the most disastrous earthquakes India has ever seen, i.e. Earth Quake in Bhuj, in 2001. Three characters of which two are female and one is the male is to be talked about. Sonal, a dutiful nurse in the aftermath of the earthquake’s medical services at the earthquake affected places with an agenda of finding her lot friend Smita and Tejas, Sonal’s ex-beau is the doctor in the same place.
The tryst of long lost emotions, confused state in communicating the present emotions and an unclear understanding of the future between Sonal and Tejas is the crux of the story.
What I like:
1. The storyline that is set up during the chaotic times that people were under
2. The emotional quotient which is well managed
3. The turnaround time during and after the natural calamity
What I didn’t like:
1. Many errors are found while reading including grammatical and vocabulary
2. Poor editing was a speed breaker during the read
All the characters are well plotted with notable importance.
The simple and involving narration stands highlight in the book.
Language & Grammar:
A better editing would have made the book more memorable.
My Final Verdict:
A fine and neat one time read.
Book Title: 3/5
Book Cover: 3/5
Language & Grammar: 3/5
Final Rating: 3/5
One of the most devastating earthquake in the history of independent India hit Bhuj, Gujarat in 2001. There was a colossal loss of life and property. Jagrut Samaj, an NGO under Doctor Shah is working tirelessly for relief work. Soanl also joins the camp. Tejas also joins the NGO and relief work. They come close and then….
The book brings to fore the horrors of devastating earthquake of Bhuj. Natural disasters bring the best and worst out of humans. On one hand there is Jarut Samaj which work for relief and on the other hand there is a gang in Rajasthan which deals in spurious drugs. They use this disaster to slip in their fake medicines in relief camps. 3/ 5 stars.
How they discover that they still felt strongly for each other is the crux of the story. A few subplots are there as well that go hand in hand with main story.
The story is an interesting read but sometimes sounds too complex. The pace is slow and shifting subplot makes it dull at times. But the characters are beautifully portrayed. The narrative is smooth and writing style simples. It talk about many emotions love, friendship, envy, greed, humanity etc.
I liked the cover and the title.
