Summary

Because love is the greatest mystery of all....

Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime with this magical romantic comedy from the best-selling author of Me and Mr Darcy.

'In a way, I'm a bit of a love detective. Because what's a greater mystery than love?'

Meet Ruby Miller. A writer who makes happy-ever-afters happen. Until she discovers her fiancé is a lying cheat and loses her faith in love. So when her sister invites her on a beach holiday to Goa to forget about him, Ruby jumps on a plane...and into an extraordinary adventure.

Stolen bags, a runaway sister and a handsome American stranger sweep Ruby into a magical mystery tour across India. Amid fortresses, fortune-tellers and a whirlwind of weddings, she uncovers fascinating stories of love - lost and found.

But as the mysteries deepen, secrets are revealed that turn Ruby's life upside down. And what started as a journey to find her sister becomes a journey to find herself - and love - again.

A lovely summer listen

Having recently listened to Alexandra’s current books I thought I would give one of her older books a go and this one did not disappoint. Really made me want to book a trip to India! Loved all the characters and a great story too. Great narration by Victoria Fox too. Was a great escape while out on my dog walks!

Not what I expected

Totally not what I had expected, I thought it was going to be a typical chick lit kinda book. Completely wrong, surprisingly good. So much so I’ve planned a trip to some of the places mentioned in the book 🇮🇳

A heart warming story right to the end

i wasn't sure this was going to be for me getting into the first couple of chapters but it became a tollercoaster of emotions and I couldn't stop listening on. By half way i was in love with all the characters and such a fab ending! I'd definitely recommend

Not for me

Extremely boring and uneventful book! Couldn’t even finish it. It sounds like a good book by the description given but it just wasn’t for me.

just lovely

This was soo lovely and heartwarming. I feel as if I have just been to India, enjoying the abundance of colours, flavours, music and romance. The love story was beautiful and the scenery complemented it perfectly. Victoria Fox, the narrator, was amazing as always with her beautifully soft and reassuring voice.

Magical mystery tour

Excellent story . Interesting , especially the tour round India , and enjoyable . A couple of nice twists in the finish bring the story to a HEA. Only regret is the use of different to when it should be different from !! The Americans never get it wrong ( personal niggle, nothing to detract from the quality of the story ).
