Can love happen twice? By Ravinder Singh.

Yo Yo-ing between the West and the East, the book is a roller coaster ride.

From the bestselling author of I Too Had a Love Story comes another novel, centred on the same theme: Love. Can Love Happen Twice? is Ravin's story narrated by his friends Happy, Manpreet and Amardeep. Ravin braved losing his first love and in her memory, he wrote his debut book. Falling in love again seemed impossible. Ravin moves to Belgium, where he befriends Simar who is pursuing her MBA.

Back and forth

One thing leads to another and love knocks on Ravin's door again. But fate has other plans. Ravin has to come back to India on work but manages to keep his relationship alive. Soon, marriage is on the cards. That's when her hidden insecurities surfaced, some of them quite silly. Marriage, she thought, would curb her freedom. With only one person prepared to make compromises for love, would that relationship work? Another rollercoaster ride, another series of highs and lows, another time history repeats itself. The plot is cleverly written merging ideas from the West with Indian traditions and customs. For Bollywood buffs this is a good read.
