Title : Jugnu
Author : Ruchi Singh
Genre : Romance (Second Chance)
Zayd Abbas Rizvi, out on parole, wants to escape the suspicious eyes of the world and concentrate on rebuilding his future. He zeroes in on Kasauli, a small, quaint hill town.
Contrary to his expectations though, he is unable to find peace in the skirmish around the guest house, the antics of a three-year-old, and the deep, sad eyes of his mother. As he battles the demons of his past, falling in love is not in Zayd’s plan…
Ashima’s life is a long, tiresome struggle, until a tall, tattoo flaunting stranger registers in her guest house. Hoping against hope for a ray of sunshine in her life, unbridled attraction to a stranger is not what Ashima bargains for…
Will Zayd and Ashima be able to forego their past and embrace their present, even when they know that if things went wrong, all they’ll be left with is a broken heart and painful memories?
Life always gives a second chance and one should accept it with open hands. Jugnu by Ruchi Singh is also an emotional roller coaster ride of two people who lost their first love in tragic incident. In the awesome hill town of Kausali the two people meet and their relationships blossoms amid so much constraints. I loved the way the author had touched each aspect a woman goes through before taking the plunge.
The character of Ashima, a mother, a daughter-in-law, a manager, a wife has been portrayed so naturally. Even Zayad’s character will make you fall in love.
Recommend for all romance readers who are looking for a second chance in life.
