In Love and Free (Jagdish Joghee) ~ Book Review

In Love and Free: The tale of a woman caught between two men... by [Joghee, Jagdish]


Shruthi has everything going in her life with great education, incredible romance, a wonderful husband, and two adorable kids. There is plenty of laughter, joy, and love in the cosy nest that Shruthi has carefully built.
All is well till that fateful Diwali day when passion gets the better of reason. One momentary lapse threatens to uproot the entire foundation of her beautiful life. The stakes are too high as Shruthi runs the risk of being abandoned by her husband and losing her children too.
And there is no one to blame but herself.
Caught in a cesspool of blackmail, ransom, revenge and remorse, Shruthi is on the brink of collapse. She can run but cannot hide.


In Love and Free  takes you through life of Shruthi, an ideal in all fields of her life.But can she remain ideal for long?! A mistake or her wish for a forbidden fruit turns her life upside down. This is the story of her try at survival… survival from the darkness she created with the misuse of her freedom… her moments of ‘make it or break it’. Will she survive?! Grab a copy to find out 😉

The book presents a different and daring concept which gives it an upper hand. The plot gains momentum over pages. Shruti’s character is sketched well and once again the author proved his caliber at creating realistic next door characters with Shruti. You will feel Shruti through the words… salute to that! 🙂 Simple and straight forward writing style makes it more beautiful. The author brilliantly depicted the situation in which Shruthi falls and the perspectives it guides her through; her chances at choosing between right and wrong, deeply! He did justice to the theme he intended to present and succeeded in using a reader’s curiosity efficiently in framing the story forward.

The blurb could have been much better with an air of mystery or something catchy. The book cover design is average to me. There is scope for improvement and growth in the beginning of the story with regards to writing style and plot presentation.

I will rate this book 4.25/5 😀 .  Happy to recommend it for a refreshing theme to read, book lovers will like it for sure 🙂
