Paridhi Mathur, dusky, beautiful, and single, is doing everything to keep her academic records high and her love life nil, but lady luck keeps frowning at her.

When she meets Abhigyan Ambastha, rich - devastatingly handsome, intense and sometimes curt, her resolve wavers. Despite regular warnings from her ever-suspicious heart, she inexplicably gets attracted towards him. But she would not let him trespass her soul.

Why? Is she scared of mendacious face of love her past has inflicted on her? Can Paridhi really trust Abhigyan? Will a blissful breeze of love ever kiss her heart?

A heart-warming saga of dreams and desires, We Will Meet Again promises to make you smile and cry at the same time. Hold on to your hearts before embarking on this roller coaster ride of emotions!

My Views:

The book was on my to-read list for quite sometime. Finally I picked up the book to read and finished it in two sittings (the break was needed because I could not keep my eyes open any longer).
Read half of the book in one and remaining half in second sitting.
The book is a simple and easy read. There are not many twists in the story, not much of action or suspense that would make the book un-putdownable but the excellent narration by the author, the smooth story flow makes it the kind of book you would not mind continuing reading unless you have something more important to do. 
On one hand, the first person narration makes it easier to wear the shoes of the protagonist 'Paridhi' but on the other hand it kind-of does injustice to the character of Abhigyan. I would have liked to know what he was thinking and why he is the way he is.
I have always believed that 'being good at writing a story is not about the story being unpredictable, it is about the way you narrate the predictable story and still keep the reader interested.' (...)

Tarang Sinha does justice to one of the simplest stories I have read and makes it an interesting read. The dialogues between the characters makes you imagine being there with them, listening to their conversation.

The way the characters are portrayed and the scenes described makes the story and the characters believable. They could be anyone we know in our real lives.
As mentioned before, I personally felt that the character of Abhigyan could have been described better. A chapter about how he felt about things and about Paridhi would have made sense instead of one-sided perspective of Paridhi.

It might not be one-of-a-kind book but it is definitely an enjoyable read. A book worth picking up when you are traveling or wish to shift from too-deep reading to a lighter kind.
The cover photo does justice to the book and in a way brings out the contemplative mood of Paridhi. 

What I did not like in the book - use of terms like yaar and other Hindi words and improper English at some places, and a few others things that should have been dealt with while editing.
This is not the first Indian book I have read with use of Hindi words; I have read a bestseller with a lot more Hindi words in it that this book. So, maybe it is acceptable to the mass.

I would recommend the book to those who enjoy reading light-hearted romance novels but not to those who prefer much deeper reading. Pick up the book without any expecations and walk along-side Paridhi on her journey of finding love.

Overall, the book is good as a debut novel of the author. My best wishes to the author for future endeavours.
