Book Review - "The Other Side of Her" by Hari Kumar

"The Other Side of Her" by Hari Kumar K reached my home as a surprise package. I didn't subscribe for the book but my stars were shining so I got this lovely book at my doorsteps uninvited. Though Diwali vacation has affected the deadline of the review, it gave me a good company during Diwali trip. It was my first book by Hari Kumar, and I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

Book Blurb
Bestselling romance writer Revati Krishna had everything that a girl could wish for – A sparkling career, a thriving fan-base and a perfect love life. 
However, life is not always a bed of roses… Sometimes, there appear thorns. 
An unfortunate car accident turns her life upside down.
To start over her life, Revati moves to a sleepy hill station where she gets entangled with a murder that happened 15 years ago. On the pretext of writing a book, she starts investigating into the matter and finds striking evidence which otherwise could never be found. But she doesn’t know that she has put her own life in danger.
How far will one woman go to give justice to a dead girl?
The answer lies in that incident which happened 15 years ago. The incident which shall tell the world… The Other Side of Her story.
The protagonist of the story is Revati, an award-winning author. She was enjoying an ideal life on personal and professional front. But life took a complete turn when she lost her husband in an accident. She lost her touch over writing skills as well. As for change, she was asked to take a long break, so she decided to stay with her elder sister until she can get out of her depression. From this point a love story looking book switched to a horror kind of thriller. A ghost of a dead girl name Paravati came into touch with Revati. To bring the justice to girl, Revati started investigating 15 years murder mystery. Read the book to know more.

Good points about the book
  1. Simple language usage. 
  2. To the point narration style.
  3. Character of Revati & Paravati
  4. Good mix of multiple genres
  5. The short length of the book made it an easy read.
An awesome companion for a short trip. I really enjoyed reading this book, can surely recommend to light book readers.

I will give 4 stars out of 5 to Hari Kumar's "The Other Side of Her".
