I was taken aback by the type of writing that I came across in this book. Beautiful descriptions of the settings were something that I loved. It felt like I was present in the mesmerizing hills of Nilgiris.
Even though I’m not a shopaholic myself, I could relate to Rebecca Bloomwood’s life quite easily. Apart from that, Sophie Kinsella’s writing is so involving that from the first page, it felt like I was in Becky’s shoes for as long as I could remember.
