Review: The cover of the book “Fade into Red” Really interested me to read the book. It clearly indicates that the story revolves around a woman. The blurb was also interesting. Although the pages of the book were too much, but once you start reading the book, it’s wonderful narration will completely make you hooked to the book that pages appear to the reader will be less. I really liked the main character Arya, who was a strong woman who let her dream just to be financially strong. Her relationship with Kartik also had to end because of her work. I really liked the narration of Vineyards and wine testing process. The story had all the elements which make it an interesting read. It contains humor, which will make you laugh. A little bit romance and also passion for work. All women should read this book. The book ended with a hope. I really appreciate Ayra’s decision in the end. The description of the Tuscan hills and other location was amazing. I really loved Rome and wanted to visit someday. I really enjoyed reading about the character Narina and the way she talks about Ayra’s Cat which was really humorous. Overall a nice and entertaining read. All the best Author!!
Drawback: The Italian language in some places really made me confused. The Author should have given translation for the words.. The too much description of the city also appeared to be boring…
