Review by Stacey

Life’s Not Over Yet is a short slow-burn romance novella of just 61 pages. The book opens with Trisha arriving in Hill Station, Chail, India looking for a fresh start and to reflect on the past. Her friend has arranged accommodation for her, which she believes is a one-bedroom apartment, but turns out to be a room in Doctor Dev’s house.

Dev is fiercely independent and likes his privacy. He was persuaded by his sister to let an ‘older’ woman who needed somewhere to stay live with him for a few days, but when he was drunk she got him to sign a one-year lease.

The characters are well developed and enjoyable to follow. Dev came across as a bit arrogant at the beginning but then he had been duped into letting someone stay at his house for a year. Trisha is a private character who doesn’t like talking about her past. You know something happened but it isn’t until late in the plot that you discover what.

Although the story is only 61 pages at times it felt longer as sometimes there were passages that felt unnecessary, fillers that didn’t add anything to the plot. Other times the book was absorbing, especially the conversations Dev and Trisha had.

Vidisha Chandna Dua has a knack for recreating real-life in her work and just as she did in her previous work we reviewed ‘Love and Hate‘ she has created a short story I read in one sitting and with a twist I didn’t see coming.
