Book Review:: 'The Cure Was Love' by Reet Singh

Book Review
Genre: Romance. Harlequin (M&B) 

Blurb:
For three months, Simi Gill gets to do what she loves – train to be a doctor and learn more about medicine. As a bonus, she gets to forget about the shallow boyfriend who dumped her, and worse, who hurt her. Living it up in New York, far from her home in India, she is saved by the delicious Rudy Bhatnagar, not once, but two times in one night!


A talented surgeon with a heart of gold, Rudy can’t stop himself from thinking about Simi Gill. He tries very hard - for having had his heart broken before, he’s not sure he can risk it again. But fate has other plans. Thrown together by bizarre circumstances, they survive booze and babysitting with aplomb. Will they realize they’re perfect for each other or will they let precious love slip through their fingers?

My Review
If you are looking for a passionate romance, witty dialogues with fluent narration, handsome doctor and a happily-ever-after, then ‘The Cure Was Love’ is the story for you. And this is the first time I have read a story with Indian characters in American setting, complete with Macy’s parade and Thanksgiving celebrations, totally entertaining.

Gorgeous Simi (going to be a doctor) meets Rudy (a handsome surgeon with bad handwriting), in his pyjama top, on a cold November night, with Murphy’s law in full force. The night includes a dog, a bullet and a twisted ankle, and Simi ends up under his scalpel. Intriguing!

Reet Singh has penned a charming story, which is thrilling and humorous at the beginning, goes on to become emotional with the right amount of mush, to being passionate, then tugs at your heart when the lovers are separated due to external circumstances and their own misgivings. Eventually they get united in India, with dashing Colonel Shamsher Singh playing the part of cupid to perfection.


Simi’s character truly reflects the Indian girl’s shyness, courage and honesty, whereas Rudy is the perfect hero showing compassion, understanding and maturity in the face of Simi’s uncertainties. The fire between the two ignites slowly and sizzles as they helplessly fall for each other. A highly recommended read for romance lovers.

About the Author:
Reet Singh is a doctor and has published before - in medical journals - so even before she wrote her first work of fiction, she had experience of writing for an unseen audience. 

Her first book was written for children. ‘The Zaken Takeover’, for middle-graders, has been co-authored with her son, and is available on Amazon, for Kindle.

When Mills and Boon® India announced the Passions Contests looking for aspiring romance writers from India, she decided to participate. When she won last year, there was no looking back. 'Scorched by His Fire' was released in February 2014, and the Kindle edition released later, in June. 

'The Cure Was Love' is her third published piece of romantic fiction.
