Nikita a young, bubbly girl with stars in her eyes narrated a few lines from the book that left everyone spellbound. Here is the extract she read:

“Love is a many-flavoured thing: it can go from vanilla to rainbow sprinkles in the blink of an eye. 

Four years ago, Maahi’s heart was broken into so many pieces that it looked like she might never put it back together again. Yet time has healed her wounds, and she has found her true calling – and even a dash of romance. But when the past comes knocking on her door, threatening to shatter a life she has carefully rebuilt, her world is turned upside-down.

Emotionally charged and vivid, Like a Love Song is about the sort of love that consumes and sears you … and the healing powers of true passion.”
