Name of the Book: Happily Murdered

Author: Rasleen Syal

Publisher: Srishti Publishers and Distributers

About the Author: Rasleen Syal is an Indian writer and a mystery addict. She enjoys reading mystery novels, and playing detective. She is an architect with an MBA degree, and runs a business in Gurgaon, where she lives with her husband and their daughter.

Blurb: Gulab Sarin has been murdered. The new daughter-in-law of the wealthy and influential Mehta family, she is found dead the day after her wedding. The police know for certain that it’s an insider. Anyone could be the murderer, from the adulterous husband to the plotting in-laws. Or it could be the jealous friend or the love struck ex-fiance. All of them wish to save their own skins and incriminate others, so they begin a crusade to hunt for the truth as amateur detectives. Can they bring out the truth or will Gulab’s murderer vanish, leaving the truth dead just like her? (Via Flipkart)

Verdict: As the blurb clearly states, this story revolves around Gulab Sarin Mehta who was found dead the day after her marriage. There are many people living in palace who have the motive to kill her and may have killed her as well. When all of them wish to save themselves and their family members they try to plot against the other and incriminate them. To fulfill their wish they try to be detectives themselves and what do they find in their search will leave us baffled and confused. But will they and the police get hold of the murderer or will the murderer escape? Will an innocent be made a scapegoat or will they be fair enough in their means to find the murderer? These all answers lie in this murder mystery book.

1) Great story line.
2) Good vocabulary.
3) Wonderful cover.
1)   Very few editing hinges.
2)   Ned wrongly named as Sid, once.

To sum up with the review it’s a wonderful story line portraying the murder mystery that leaves you wanting to read more until you find out the murderer never leaving the hint about the culprit till the climax. Not all murder mystery books keep you on hold with the book till the end, but this book does. A worth read.

Ratings: 4 OUT OF 5.
