This is the first book in a series of books that contain two stories. Each is linked in a unique way, but both are meant to tug on your heart strings.

“The Proposal” brings us two people, Pooja and Akshay, who married to make their parents happy, but they are not. Two days after their wedding, they are already getting their divorce papers. However, what if their hearts really aren’t in it?

“Remembrance” is about a young woman named Helen. Unfortunately, an accident has left her with amnesia. Until she can remember everything, she’ll never be fully healed.

My Opinion:

Both of these stories were incredibly well-written. I read through both of them in a single evening and was left wanting more. In a short amount of time, Garg brings all of the characters to life and you feel as if you could walk up to any of them and introduce yourself.

“The Proposal” was a great story. While those who enjoy chick lit might see the ending coming from a mile away, it didn’t lessen the impact in anyway. It was an enjoyable read and it was exciting to see that Pooja appears in “Remembrance.”

“Remembrance” contained hints and clues throughout the story, but the ending caught me by surprise. In a way, it broke your heart and then healed it.

Garg is quite the master at these short stories. My biggest complaint was, well… They’re short stories. I enjoyed her characters so much I wished the stories would have gone on longer and been full length novels in their own right. Her style of writing is easy to read and enjoyable. Garg did a terrific job and I’d be more than happy to continue reading her “Stories in Pairs” series.
