However, I felt I really needed to review this. I bought 'The Love Detective' on 23rd January 2014, and it arrived yesterday (25th!). I have to admit that when I bought this, I hadn't even read the blurb of it. I simply saw that there was an Alexandra Potter book that I hadn't read yet and wanted it! I was NOT disappointed. I picked this up last night and thought I'd read the first chapter to see how I'd get on. Next thing I know, I'm half way through the book because I just couldn't put it down! I ended up finishing the whole book before going to bed and I absolutely loved it. I completely fell in love with our lead character and could completely identify with her needing to re-find herself etc. I won't go into any details as I wouldn't want to ruin the book for anyone who reads this review. All I can say is, if you buy this book, and are an Alexandra Potter fan, you will not be disappointed!
I would absolutely recommend this to a friend!!!! Enjoy!
This story is about Ruby, a writer who lives in London, who decides to take a break and go and visit her sister in India when she suffers from writers block. Her mind is full of thoughts of her cheating ex and she thinks she has lost faith in love. Not great for a romance writer! So she decides to take in some culture, relax and clear her head.
Only things don’t go quite to plan on the relaxing front when she ends up on an adventure across India to try and find her sister. She embarks on an epic train journey, meets a handsome American, falls into a tourist trap and finds out that she can do so much more than she thought…
I really enjoyed this book and found that it was quite a quick read. The thing I liked most about the book was the unusual setting and the great cultural detail. It was a really interesting and unusual story and I really enjoyed the fact that it wasn’t a straight forward story and had some twists and turns, and an interesting small twist at the end which tied the story up well. It is really well written and I will definitely look out for more from the author. Only goes to show that sometimes judging a book by a cover can result in a really good read!
I'm glad that I did because I loved the second half! The camel scenario made me LOL and I warmed to the leading lady Ruby. I think the problem for me was that I was expecting magic from the first few chapters, like in AP's previous books. The magic in the second part was wonderful and I got goosebumps at the end!
It does make you think a lot about love and fate and also about our beliefs. I'm not religious how after reading this I felt fascinated about the other beliefs and how love is always the same but with a hint of difference in each place.
It is a laugh out loud book and I felt like I could relate to ruby a lot, with the clumsiness and how she thinks.
