BOOK BLURB:
Working as an assistant wedding planner at an ex-boyfriend’s wedding, Meha encounters the delectably handsome wedding photographer, Samir. Conceited and a flirt, Samir reveals that the bride happens to be his ex. But when Meha finds out that Samir is using their relationship only as experiential material for his novel, she leads him to believe that he means nothing to her.
Their chapter closes. But life has other plans for Meha. Five years later, she finds herself in an online reality show living-in with the same Samir and trying to understand the true meaning of love.
Will she find the forever-wala love in a world where relationships can be as brief as the messages we send each other and where we are spoilt for choices, whether it’s the screensaver on our phone or the flavours of a condom?
An interesting take on relationships in our times, Let’s Have Coffee is funny and witty, warm and wonderfully realistic story of two very different people who fall in love.





MY REVIEW:

Let's have coffee by Parul A. Mittal is an exciting quick read. It'a an exotic mix of friendship, love, confusing emotions and passion for work. This is a story of Samir, a wedding photographer and Meha, a wedding planner. Meha is the main protagonist in the novel. Samir and Meha meet each other at their exes Radhika and Deepak's wedding in Goa. Meha falls in love with Samir, they spend some great time together and instantly connects with each other better. Meha reads notes in Samir's mobile and she comes to know that Samir is using her as experiential material for his novel and then Meha put an end to this two days but the most special relationship. After 5 years, destiny brings two of them together at Sonia's proposal event planned by Meha. There comes lot of turns and twists in their lives including misunderstandings and Meha's financial crisis and Meha and Samir enters a reality show as a dating couple to win a prize of ten lakhs. During this reality show they come closer and get to  learn lot of things about each other. To know what happens next, you will have to grab the novel. I found this novel really interesting.

The language used is simple and I really loved the writing style of the author. The funny conversation between Meha and her mother made me a laugh. After a long time, I have read any romance novel and no doubt I absolutely enjoyed reading it. The book cover image is attractive and title used is apt.

MT RATING: 5/5 STARS
