All signs lead back to you - Aniesha Brahma

All signs lead back to you.

All signs lead back to you

2013.

As the final bell for the day rang on their last day in school, Diya Rai, had a chill run down her spine. The chill of not knowing what the future holds for her and her high school sweetheart, Ashwin Chowdhury.
So she does a preemptive strike.
She dumps him before he can hurt her.

2015.

Two years later, Ashwin and Diya, cross paths. Each holds grudges, feelings and only one half of the story that completes them.
Told from alternating points of view, through a non-linear timeline, this is the story about
first love, second chances and ALL the SIGNS THAT LEAD BACK TO YOU.

My Review

All signs lead bay to you by Aniesha Brahma
Although this book sounds, from the title, as though it's going to be a romance, it really is a story about friendship. The friendship that existed between Ashwin and Diya, while they were at school and now the friendship between Diya and Nina.

Diya finished with Ashwin when school came to an end, because she felt that she would loose him anyway and wanted to have a get out plan first. When they meet again, there are clearly still feelings there, but is it love, or friendship, or even the love that friends feel. where does Nina fit into all of this?

I did like the story and I thought that it was an interesting take on the idea of friendship. The three main characters worked quite well and I enjoyed the development of the story both now and in the past, as we learnt both at the same time.

Unfortunately the minor characters didn't quite work as well, which was a shame. I really could see no reason for Ashwin or Diya being involved with their new partners or potential partners and they didn't really add anything to the story.

Over all this was quite a nice sweet read with an interesting concept. I managed to polish it off in a couple of days, so if you're looking for a quick read that will leave a smile on your face then I don't think you can go far wrong with All Signs Lead Back to You.
