Blurb:

A short girl with short hair, 32 years old and unmarried; Adrija has all the makings of being an unsuitable girl in an Indian middle-class family. And to top it all, she is feverishly keen on following her passion to become a top-ranked fashion photographer in the country!

With unsupportive parents bent on crushing all her dreams and wanting her to get married, she dares to say “Yes” to a golden opportunity and lands up in the city of dreams- without much in her pockets but stars in her eyes and a camera in her hand!

But as they say, destiny favors none! Just when she thinks that she is starting her dream journey as a Fashion Photographer, her ex-boyfriend returns with horrendous motives and tries to flip her life upside down.

And amidst all the drama that unfolds, “Jabber Jackson”, the funny guy whom she meets on her official trip to Seychelles, gets strangely entwined with her life and its chaos.

Will she give up or fight for her desires or does destiny has its own plan in store for her?

My Review :

It is a fun romantic story which is like a fresh breeze on the beach. I loved the characters, romance, and narration. The Protagonist Adrija is a strong woman. Even though she is from a middle-class family where the parents don't support her dreams of making it big in photography, she doesn't give up easily on her ambitions. It's lovely to see such characters. They are motivating for everyone. 

"Jabber Jackson", enters the story as a useless character disturbing Adrija and her work, but later proves himself to be something different. 

I loved the way the author builds up the character of Adrija and introduces her to the readers. Overall, it is a nice love story but I would have enjoyed reading more about how Adrija has progressed in her career too.

The book cover is awesome and the title is apt which is the actual turning point of the story.  

My Rating: 4/5
