#BookReview : True Liars by Isha Inamdar

"She wasn't true, but was her love a lie."

True Liars is the debut book by author Isha Inamdar. The book was published on 10 May 2017 by Harlequin India and is available in paperback as well as in Kindle Format at the online and offline bookstores. The cover page of the book is very attractive having an image of a girl with a flying blindfold. The colours used in the cover are very apt such as red, gold and black, making it very catchy to the eyes.

The book revolves around aspiring deejay NJ - Anjana who lives in Mumbai with her best friend Harsh and his boyfriend Sam. When Harsh has to go to Phalodi, his hometown in Rajasthan, for his sister’s wedding, he convinces NJ to tag along, posing as his girlfriend to avoid being set up with any potential brides. At the wedding, though, she meets Rudra, Harsh's elder brother, and the two are powerfully attracted to each other. One thing leads to another and they kiss, only to break away bitterly. But NJ will not let Harsh's secret out. So, what happens will NJ and Rudra be together?

The story is written in a very simple and in a very beautiful manner. The language is easy to understand and is like flowing. The author has an awesome command over the language. The narration of the story is in third person which makes the story very realistic. A reader can easily visualize and connect to various instances. The characters of the story are very well developed and all of them have a past or a mystery. The relation between the siblings is nicely shown. The portrayal of the emotions is marvelous making the reader feel them deeply. The leap is shown very well in the story. The story line is fast paced making the reader stick to it till the end. The title is very unusual but is totally justified. 
Overall, an amazing and a passionate love story having elements of love, trust and friendship.
I would highly recommend this book to those who really want to read a desi love story.
