weeks after I read it I still can t get it out of my mind That safter I read it I still can t get it out of my mind That s good my friends rightThough I had high expecta Loved this book so much It was so good I couldn t The Mutants Are Coming put it down and I was always so excited to read the next chapter which is why I ve brought some books from Alexandra Potter which I m excited to read and I hope they ll bring me as much joy as they did with this one After reading The Love Detective finally finally I canroudly say that I have read all of Alexandra s books and that this one is one of her best If I am not mistaken this is the first book in the series about Ruby and I really can t wait to see what Ms Potter has in store for us with the next books as this one was truly enjoyable and very freshRuby Miller is a writer but she finds herself in a writing backlog right now Well she writes romances but after being badly treated by her boyfriend she doesn t believe in love any so it s not a wonder that she usually sits for her computer and can t write a word how if she doesn t believe in love and men any So her agent suggests and offer she can t refuse that she should take a break following this advice Ruby finds herself on Goa India She can not only charge the batteries but also try some yoga and see her younger sister Amy And best comes back with a head full of stories to writeBut the things complicate a little when Amy confesses that she wants to marry the yoga teacher Shine and in the end she elopes with him Ruby sets off chasing after his sister through the whole India and here begins the true India adventure for her through travelling by a train being mugged meeting a handsome stranger Jack who in the end helps her riding on a camel and sleeping on the desert and taking art in many many weddings As colourful and livid as only India could beThis book is set mostly in India on Goa in Mumbai and Rajahastan and there couldn t be a better setting to it Although I must add straight away that there were many moments that I felt the author writing this book took the opportunity to recount her own experiences from travelling across India because she must have been there and done her research right I m not wrong and it s her travel memories than a book about Ruby. People always ask me what kind of books I write and I guess you'd call them love stories but I also think of them as mysteries After all what makes two eople fall in love I've written three novels on the topic and I'm still looking for the answersIn Sometimes it happens that such books feel as travel guides than fiction but that was not the case there was a lot travelling and sightseeing but it was written in a light easy way and the detailed descriptions were brilliant vivid and so realistic No matter if of the beach on Goa or the famous Taj Mahal and Ms Potter has wonderfully transported the beauty of this all on aper lus she shares some very very interesting historical facts with usRuby was such a grouch at the beginning of the book She didn t want to take risks she felt at best at home and over after her boyfriend cheated on her she doesn t believe in love any Awww Ruby How is it ossible when you are an author and writes romances This is Underground (Unbelievers, probably the reason of her author s block because how can you write about love if you don t believe in it But I actually so fell for her I think you can t not like Ruby she s in fact funny and veryrone to accident and is something could go wrong than you can be sure that it is going to be wrong She was also hot blooded and I couldn t understand her obsession with saving Amy but altogether she was likeable believable nice The Letters and Lessons of Teddy Roosevelt for His Sons person and I think it might be fun to travel together with her Ruby belongs to my favourite category of characters namely those who are dynamic and develop and change through the story While I adored Ruby I was not the biggest fan of her sister Amy Too shallow and too egoistical for my liking she didn t take any notice of othereople having always ut herself up front and not thinking about conseuences She doesn t want to find a job Well let her She wants to get married to a guy that she doesn t know too good Well let her It s her life and eople must also make their own misjudgements same as we made ourselves We must learn by our own mistakesAs in The Purposeful Graduate previous Alexandra s books there is a sparkle of magic in this one as well but I am not so sure if it sit with me this time As much as I enjoyed Rocky and especially his desert drinking accident I still am not sure about him and hislot There is magic and there is magic and it was just too obvious even for the fictionBut altogether I thoroughly enjoyed this journey with Ruby It was incredibly acked with action and colourful characters especially those that Ruby meets on her way to find Amy It s full of fun and brilliant atmosphere and I think this is Alexandra s best book yet She has brought the characters and the settings to life wonderfully A great read in fact warm and uplifting and the best

mystical land of nature and gorgeous diverse cultureland of nature and gorgeous diverse culture author Alexandra Potter did an amazing job of telling the story of the heroine Ruby s journey to take back her old self and believe in love once again Her visit to India to recharge her battery after a major heartbreak seems to get off on the right foot in the beginning She relishes the relaxing time at the oolside doing nothing other than reading or leisurely lying on the beach as well as strolling through the shopping alley Everything seems erfect and works well for her However on the day she and her sister Amy are supposed to leave for London Amy ulls a stunt of no show telling Ruby that she and Shine a dazzlingly good looking yoga instructor are eloping Ruby who has become jaded and lost her faith in true love her fiance turned out to be a two timer adamantly believes the marriage is a total mistake and resolves to go after Amy and talks her into giving up on marrying Shine But it is when things start to go southAs I mentioned earlier the depiction of India is very detailed and enthralling Nicely and tactfully blending the mystical and magical element which I think can only be attributed to India into the main 4000 Meilen durch die USA: Meine Reise zu den großen Fragen des Lebens plot it comes across uite convincing that India opens up Ruby s mind and rejuvenates her to the extent she s ready to believe in love once again The interactions that she had with the locals are all so delightful to follow and I liked Ruby s voice a lot She can be a bit stubborn and tends to jump the gun yet she is also witty and funny On top of that she is very sisterly Typical big sister type alwaysrotective of her baby sister while Ruby herself tends to make stupid mistakes A LOTHer transformation through her stay in India is certainly the highlight of this book Although I did find the depiction of her change of her Interior Designs: An Adult Coloring Book with Beautifully Decorated Houses, Inspirational Room Designs, and Relaxing Modern Architecture perspectives toward love is not fully grounded I didn t get to see what exactly brought the change to her as far as I m concerned the solid and strong writingeppered with humor made this book even entertaining such a fun Gläsern page turner I read this book in only three sittings which is uite a rarity for me That speaks volumes how I got immersed in the book Novertheless that s not to say I didn t have issues with this book I actually had some niggles especially in the romance department First Jack The love interest in this book He is supposed to be sexy and attractive but I didn t find him attractive AT ALL It might have been because I wasrimarily listening to the audiobook I m not saying the narration is bad it was Detention of Doom pretty good actually but Jack s voice was a bit young and didn t deliver the sexiness that the book claims he has In addition to thatretty much everything about Jack is shrouded in mystery I got to know hardly anything about him other than he is American and came to India to keep a Fromentin promise which he wouldn t even divulge eitherI suppose not getting to know him enough could be the reason why I didn t care much about him Next the romance Yes the book clearly says Ruby is totally obsessed with Jack and is lust after him during their stay in Tajmahal but after that I didn t feel any spark or chemistry between them Their romance kind of fell flat for me thus the development in the latterart didn t sit well with me It wasn t just convincingagain as far as I m concerned And oh a typical hasty judgment on Ruby s side seriously how could she Punishing My Slutty Little Sister possibly reach such a ludicrous conclusion Frankly I wasut off by it a bit and I felt my interest in this book deflate Blood+: Russian Rose, Volume 2 pretty uickly That said though the story doesick up in the end all the mystery surrounding Jack the reason why he s there and the story behind it which is retty romantic and bittersweet get unraveled and lead us to a happy ending The Rocky magic inserted in the ending was a bit too much for my liking but it s still romantic and magical I could live with that All in all The Love Detective is a witty magical and delightful read The gorgeous ortrayal of India and its culture will fascinate you and make you keen to visit there I betIf you are in the mood for a romantic comedy with a different uniue twist this might be for yo.
