Book Review: Simha International (The Bansal Legacy #1) by Sundari Venkatraman


I have been reading Sundari Venkatraman’s books from the time she had just two books published. And as I read, I marvelled at her growth as a writer. Reading her books feels like meeting an old friend again. They give me a warm comfortable feeling. And Simha International is no exception.

SimhaInternational-AMAZON-CoverHow does she make all her characters so real and so different from the ones in her other books? Her heroine Tasha is strong and feminine. She not only takes decisions which are not easy but takes the responsibility for her own actions. The family dynamics are spot on and the interplay of relationships sets the back drop for the story.

Of course it goes without saying that it is unabashedly romantic and that her love scenes get you warm in all the right places.

One thing that I hate while reading is to find grammatical mistakes, and believe me there are so many published books out there that are full of them. And that is another reason it is a pleasure to read Sundari’s books. Apart from an odd mistake which you would find with great difficulty, the language does not take away from the story.


Rohit Bansal, the handsome and suave managing director of Simha International, is the envy of many—from a director of the hotel to an employee. 
A thief comes up with a simple modus operandi, believing that nobody’s really going to find out anything about the thefts taking place. But when a guest brings it to his notice, Rohit is determined to save the reputation of Simha International and ropes in a top-notch detective. Will Rohit be able to find who the thief is before time runs out?
The lovely and intelligent Tasha Sawant goes to work at Simha International as the duty manager. Her experience in the hotel industry only adds to the hotel’s excellent service. 
Tasha is attracted to Rohit and it would seem that he reciprocates her feelings. Well, the lady isn’t looking for a permanent relationship as it looks likes she’s already had an unpleasant experience. But then, what about the guy? Does Rohit want any kind of relationship with Tasha? 
*Simha International is the first book in the trilogy called The Bansal Legacy

About the author
Sundari Venkatraman is an indie author who has 16 titles to her name, all Top 100 Bestsellers on Amazon India, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada and Amazon Australia in both romance as well as Asian Drama categories. Her latest hot romances have all been on #1Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.
Even as a kid, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as she grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end. 
Soon, into her teens, Sundari switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine. Her imagination took flight and she always lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years. 
Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.
