For the Sake of Love
I really like Rini. She is kind, and someone who can see the good in everything. I am sure if one were to discuss Osama bin Laden with Rini, she would be able to come up with some really good things about him, too!
We searched for Shimla on the Internet, and saw some really amazing pictures. By the end of our lunch, I have to say, I was looking forward to visiting the place.
The next day, I reported to Anita’s office. Bobby was already there and they were both waiting for me. I settled into one of the vacant recliners.
Anita handed me a yellow file and said, ‘Twisha, you are the lead in this assignment; you need to take care of everything!’
‘And of me, too,’ Bobby whispered into my ears and winked conspiratorially. I pointedly ignored her.
‘This file has your air tickets, the address of the apartment you’ll be staying in, the receipt of the advance payment of a month’s rent, your official papers, a research booklet, the list of titles on which you need to work, and some important and hopefully useful contacts.’
I immediately opened the file to check the papers. ‘You can inspect this file later. You’ll have a lot of time for that,’ Anita stopped me.
Then she took out a credit card and handed it over to me. ‘This is yours. You can pay for your food, transportation, and other expenses with this. Don’t waste money on shopping and clubbing,’ winked Anita as she continued,
‘but yeah, a little bit of everything is allowed as this is a month-long assignment and you will also need to enjoy yourselves. Alright?’
Bobby and I, both, replied ‘Yes!’ in unison.
‘Oh, and another thing, you need to send a report in every two days. Don’t forget that. It is very, very important,’ said Anita as she stuck a pen into the messy hair piled on her head in a bun.
We nodded our agreement as we smiled. I had finally come to terms with spending a month in Shimla with Bobby as my partner. Now that all the documents were in place and I had a credit card with no limits in my hand, I felt much better about the prospect.
‘Anything else?’ Anita asked in a bossy tone. ‘No,’ I replied.
‘Okay then, off you go! You girls are on an official trip for an assignment from today. Go and get ready. Be in touch, and enjoy!’ said Anita.
We both shook hands with Anita one by one, and left her cabin. It was time to bid adieu to all our colleagues who we wouldn’t be seeing for the next month.
By now, only one thing was flashing inside my head. I was going to Shimla! And I was finally feeling happy about it. It was going to be a break from routine, a kind of vacation. I wouldn’t even have to get up at 9 and take those long walks to office!
As for Bobby, well, I will be the boss on this trip, after all! She would have to follow all my instructions. Yes, All My Instructions! I am wicked, I know. But at the back of my mind were Rini’s words. I had to give Bobby a chance. Maybe Rini was right and it was just in my head. I hated it when someone else was right, but nothing could be done. Bobby and I had to live together for a month. I had to find a way to get along with her somehow.
Bring it on. I was ready!

Will these opposites attract ?
Will twisha finally fall in love ?
Grab this book to know what destiny hold for her.
The cover of the book is good but could have been better . The title is good and the blurb is also crisp . The story doesn't has any ups and downs and flows smoothly from beginning to end . Though a simple one, the narration of the author is powerful enough to keep you hooked till the end .
The characterisation is the heart of the story . The engaging characters will make you finish the book at one go . The language is lucid . Since there were no twists and turns, I found the story very predictable at many places. I liked the letters in the story which will make you fall for them instantly.
For the sake of love is perfect for someone looking for a simple and light read.
Overall a simple and sweet story.

The title of the book 'For the sake of love' gives the reader a hint that it is going to be a love story.
Book Cover :
The book cover is simple yet colorful. The image of a happy couple with some sweet decor around gives a soothing feeling.
The story is a very nice piece of fiction with fantasy love story attached to it. A young woman who is very much passionate about her profession and career rather than her own personal life, happens to meet a forgotten love story in the form of old diary and letters of someone she never knew.
Some kind of pushing force asks her to complete the incomplete love story found in those letters and she sets out for a journey with her best friend. The travel both the characters have till the end is the main plot. Will she be successful in completing the love story? is what the book is about. The author has succeeded in engaging the readers with an interesting plot.
The characters are plotted and given ample importance at perfect places.
The narration is very good and interesting.
Language and Vocabulary:
Usage of simple language and grammar is a notable point.
My Final Verdict—.
A onetime light read to enjoy a fantasy love story.

I personally rate the book 4 out of 5
"Our first meeting was sweet. We were sitting on a bench under an oak tree, she was waiting for someone and I was reading a book."
Twisha Khanna is a young, independent and successful individual. Her life is indulged in work and she has no time for the frivolities of love. Being the creative head of a happening travel magazine gives her numerous opportunities to travel on assignments.
When one such assignment to travel to Shimla came, she couldn't say no. Twisha had no time for love but life had other plans.
On finding a stack of old love letters where every word bleeds for love, Twisha is convinced to find and help the man who wrote the letters.
In her journey to make this happen, she meets Alex, a rich spoilt brat. Alex was everything Twisha would love to hate. As the two try to put the pieces together for reuniting the old lovers, they are not aware of what this journey would unfold and their life would change forever.
The book starts with a series of love letters written by Davil to his love, Jasmine. This touch of letters was nice and you could read emotions through them. Then the book recites the story of Twisha Khanna who is an independent workaholic, who despises love. Twisha is shown as a strong and hardworking character, that adds character to the story.
Twisha is sent on a trip to Shimla by her boss with her colleague, Bobby. Bobby is not someone who Twisha would like as a companion but has to go anyways. ( We know how jobs work!)
Twisha takes us on a journey where she finds the heap of letters and wants to know the story behind them. The curiosity of the character after learning about the letters is beautifully handled.
The character development of Twisha can be seen over the course of the book and the characters of Bobby, Alex and others accompanying the story are well handled.
The writing in the book is easy and smooth. The story is unique and interests a non-lover of romance like me. This novel is a fast-paced and refreshing read!
The characters could have been more layered and more insights into the background of Jasmine and David would have been appreciated.
The book actually has more to it than two people magically falling in love or a happily ever after.
If you love romance then this read won't disappoint. If you are anyone like me then this review would tell you exactly what to expect from the book and why you should or shouldn't go and try this book.
Well! Did I like the book? Yes! Would I recommend it? Yeah! Why Not!
