About the Book

But the road to their Bollywood romance is fraught and full of obstacles, Sarladevi, Nikesh’s Motaba has other plans for Nikesh. When the family Guru declares that Reena has had a difficult childhood. Reena’s anxiety and inadequacy resurface.
Can Reena overcome her fears of not being good enough to be part of Nikesh’s wealthy family? Will their relationship survive, or will Sarladevi find Nikesh a suitable girl and prevent their happily ever after?
My Heart Sings Your Song is the first book in the series featuring Reena and Nikesh and what a journey it was to know about these two lovely, honest characters. I must thank Saz Vora for introducing me to her books and getting to befriend Reena and Nikesh had been a pleasure.
Saz writes in a heartfelt, evocative manner that touches so many layers and could connect easily with a reader. The story begins with the early lives of the main couple, as teenagers when they first met, then the journey carries on to show how their relationship grew along with them.
Saz being a Gujarati herself sprinkles her Indian culture into her story in the most delicious ways with recipes and cultures that are to be cherished.
This is a touching British Indian love story that could almost be autobiographical as so many instances from the book are facts rather than fiction. I really liked the feeling of getting to know how it feels like for an Indian to grow up in a different country and yet follow our culture.
If you like Bollywood and Crazy Rich Asians then you ought to try your hands on this debut. I cannot wait to see what Saz has in story for Reena and Nikesh.
Oh, here are the links to spotify if you enjoy music. It is from the books of course!
