Sundari Venkatraman

Veera hatches up the plan to runaway from the marriage, but is able to execute it only after the deed is done. This leaves both families in the lurch, child bride Chanda without a husband, Veera's family humiliated, Chanda's family out of shame relocates to Jaipur... all the while no one has any knowledge of Veera's whereabouts. Soon grown up Chanda completes her studies, lands a job as trainee at RS Software in Delhi and falls for the handsome CEO Ranveer. Add to the mirch masala is Ranveer's hot secretary Shikha who is set on winning the rich boss & get her life set. But Abhimanyu, Ranveer's second-in-command has his heart set on her, who will win? Now Chanda's parents are on a hunting spree to find Veera with the hope given by an astrologer that Veera and Chanda will get back together. Chanda wants to confront Ranveer with her feelings only after she is a free woman, her brothers agree to help. Is Ranveer interested in her? How can Chanda be true to her feelings for Ranveer and respect her family's wishes? All the while, has Veera been found, who is he, where is he? Stop running away errant bridegroom !

What I liked:
Sundari's signature style of Indian values, characters who are believable/relate able, happily-ever after endings, feel good stories, morals. The chemistry is buzzing full on ;) The story plot is gripping. It is well fleshed out. Apart from the hero heroine, Shikha, Abhimanyu, Samrat, Ram, Lakshman, Jeetu, Dadaji are all real like. Hats off too Shikha's tenacity & her guts. Sundari has used some real hard words in this one, unlike Sundari :D

What I want more:
More to the ending, more details, more chemistry ;) In real life if there were hunks for boss who were real marriage material then there would be so many love stories, but we will suffice with Sundari's novels for the time being :D

Kudos Sundari for another beautiful romance novel. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to more novels from you.
