About The Book: On the outside, Tara leads a perfect life. A home of her own, a handsome husband, a doting son and a promising career as an author.
But inside, she is a wreck. Her marriage is a sham and she hasn’t succeeded in forgetting her one true love, Manu, the man she had wronged. The man she had almost married.
Manu, now the senior editor with a science portal, firmly believes that he has left Tara where she belonged-in his past. But in reality, he hasn’t forgotten anything. Not the love nor the hurt.
Their past and present collide when they accidentally meet in Chennai. The city has come to a standstill after facing the worst flood in a century. While nature is unleashing its fury on humans, they must make peace with their past.
Will they have the courage to do that?
Can they fight the attraction that still burns bright?
Or will the bunch of people they are with, teach them new life lessons?
How long can Tara hide her secret from Manu when it has the potential to tear them apart?
Review: I have never read Preeti Venugopal’s books. This is my first book from the writer’s shelf and I am really happy that her writing style is very good and I enjoyed reading this book. While Scrolling on Facebook, I just got attracted with the cover as well as the title of the book “Remember When”. After reading the blurb of the book I downloaded this book on my Kindle app. While reading the book, I was totally engrossed with the two characters of the story. Tara and Manu and their relationship urged me to complete the whole book without taking a break. I simply loved their love story. Also, Chennai floods really touched my heart. How these people had bravely cope with the situation. The Author had well researched about it. Every character of the book had a story and as a reader, I enjoyed each and every part of it. The highlight of the story was Aryan. His sweet gestures made you smile. I was emotional while reading this book. Sometimes destiny gives you a second chance to reunite. The most hated character was Kartik. When u love someone truly, you should sacrifice your love without any grudges. The climax with a twist was very interesting. I would read all the books of Preeti as I loved her writing style. The language is simple along with flawless narration. Overall a nice read and I would recommend everyone to download and read this book.
