Tides Don’t Cross is a story of Rukmani and Meera who meets Ayaan in different phases of their life. The story revolves around the three of them. Life is full of ups and downs, it’s up to you how you handle it. is what I learned from the book.

The book is divided into three parts. It has a story of Meera, Rukmani and the third part is about both of them. Firstly I loved the title and the cover of the book. It’s super Interesting and attractive. The plot of the story is different and interesting. The narration is crisp and engaging. The storyline is unique with lots of twists and turns. One can relate to the story from the very first page.

The pace of the story is a bit slow. the flow of the story is good. The characters that the author developed are appealing and have a strong personality. I loved Rukmani’s character the most. The chemistry between Rukmani and Ayaan was wonderful. each character is developed in a brilliant way.

Love, aggression, hate, passion and many other emotions are expressed by the author in a wonderful way. One can emotionally connect to the story and the characters. There’s a lot of drama in the story and is like a complete Bollywood movie. The dialogues, Fun, humour, aggression makes the story more interesting.

Overall, It’s a wonderful story with a unique plot, strong narration and simple language.

Sparks fly immediately when Rukmani—fierce and assertive in the best and worst possible ways—meets the gentle Ayaan in the magical city Paris. Meanwhile, back in India, her reticent sister, Mrinalini struggles to cope with the void of a loveless marriage and an early pregnancy.

Tides Don’t Cross follows these extremely interesting characters as their lives cross in surprising ways. Mrinalini, Ayaan and Rukmani wade through choppy tides, unaware of their common destiny. Deeply touching, this is an unforgettable story of thwarted desires, of love and its loss, of losing and finding oneself, and of falling and learning to rise.

Young and talented author Simar Malhotra has created yet another piercing and riveting read.
