Book Review


Author: Amrita Chowdhury

Oooh! Amrita Chowdhury has taking it several notches above great - certainly this one is exponentially more gripping than her first book - Faking it.

Breach is fabulous.

I enjoyed every little twist in the plot - not a boring moment! The language is impeccable, something I have come to expect from Amrita. The storytelling is so real, it frightened the wits out of me - every time I log on to the laptop, or visit a website using my smartphone, I quiver and quaver!

The characters - even the villains - are very neatly done. Even those glimpsed briefly leave an impression. Amrita makes you feel their angst - separation, break-ups, or the pain of losing a loved one, uncertainty, anxiety, frustration .... and love! There are nail-biting moments, but also several tender ones - I particularly loved the messages exchanged in the end between - - - I won't let the cat out of the bag. And I also loved the one and only kiss in the book.

I am saying it again - - - Breach is fabulous.

Thank you to the publisher for sending me a review copy in return for an unbiased review - and a huge thanks to The Book Club for making it possible!
