This Time It’s Forever by Aditi Ray Bose – Book Review

This Time It’s Forever

BY: ADITI RAY BOSE

Synopsis:

When Aisha Ahuja receives an SMS from Anuravo Banerjee, almost a year after he had walked away from her, asking her for a restart, she is initially unable to decide what to do. But she finally relents.

Book Review:

This Time It’s Forever is a fast pace and interesting romance story involving two people of two extremely different cultures or should I say lifestyles. The male protagonist Arunavo is a Bengali whereas Aisha, the female protagonist is a Punjabi girl which, for me, is a classic combination when we talk about contrast in India. The story has been told beautifully

Cole’s Perfect Puppy by Frances M. Crossno – Book Review

Cole’s Perfect Puppy

BY: FRANCES M. CROSSNO

Synopsis:

Cole’s Perfect Puppy introduces young readers everywhere to Cole, his younger brother Caleb and their new friend Rachel. When Cole meets the “perfect puppy” after a mad chase through the mall, he hopes for her arrival under the tree on Christmas morning. But alas, it’s not meant to be.

Instead, Cole embarks on an adventure to find a way to earn enough money, and get permission, to bring the golden retriever puppy home–learning a few life lessons along the way.

From learning how to be thankful for the gift of his first “pet”, the pot-bellied pig Dandy Danny, to the merits of hard work and the true meaning of the power of prayer, Cole’s journey isn’t without a few hiccups.

Cole’s Perfect Puppy is the first in a series of Christian novels for young readers 7-12.
