A Distant Heart (Bollywood #4) Reviews

    Nov 19, 2017

    I sat next to Sonali at an RWA book signing in Orlando this year, and managed to talk her out of an advance copy of A DISTANT HEART. I fell in love with this series after reading A Bollywood Affair, and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. The thing is, every once in a great w...

    A Distant Heart is not my favorite from Sonali Dev but it remains very likable and engaging, especially if you like romantic suspense with plenty of emotion. This book provides alternating timeframes along with characters you may recognize from Dev's other novels. The delicate subject ...

    You can find this and many more reviews on my blog Marianna's Corner! The story is set in India, Mumbai and follows two people, Kimi and Rahul, as they form an unlike friendship. They come from two completely different worlds; Kimi is rich, whereas Rahul is extremely poor. However t...

    Loved it! Still wiping tears from my eyes as I type this. Happy tears, though. How I adore Sonali Dev. Love her. Love her books. ? I took my time reading A Distant Heart even though I had a deadline to rate and review it within two weeks of its release. I wanted to not only delve...

    A Distant Heart takes up the story that was started in a Change of Heart. Now the focus is on Rahul the police officer chasing down a criminal ring who steal hearts on the black market. Rahul has suffered much loss in his life, he comes from a poor family and has always fought his ...

    A book that is almost impossible to drop into a neat category. It's part suspense, part gritty crime tale, wholeheartedly romantic, and a most unusual Rapunzel tale. I loved that it was set in Mumbai, and yet was completely accessible. Loved Sonali's voice, which is highly original and...

    A Distant Heart is a friends to lovers story set in India that I quite enjoyed. I loved the way in which the author told it. Showing the hero and heroine's first meeting as children and how their relationship evolved over time. Nothing between moves quickly, it's a slow build up that i...

    I have a love affair with Sonali Dev's books. She writes such good words. Words that usually completely break my heart (it's still broken after reading A Change of Heart) but she repairs it and gives us a shiny HEA at the end with all the smiles. The heroine in this book, Kimi, literal...

    I hate it when books with an Indian backdrop promise an "authentic Indian rep" and it ends up being a bad imitation of cheesy bollywood song-and-dance romance. But I loved A Distant Heart for being so unabashedly Bollywoodsy in terms of setting up the world of its two main character...

    Originally published at Reading Reality It?s all Kimi?s fault. Not just the events in A Distant Heart, but also everything that happened in A Change of Heart. Both the good and the bad. But especially the bad. The problem is that Kimi doesn?t know it?s her fault, or that ...

    This is my first Sonali Dev book and surely not my last wow!!! What a fantastic ride this was. I didnt read the book before this one and was still able to follow the events with ease. The story told by switching between present day events and Kimi and Rahul's past and it was done so ...

    See the full review at HarlequinJunkie.com Sonali Dev?s beautiful prose wove a complicated and deeply emotional tale for readers in A Distant Heart. Ultimately a friends-to-lovers trope, there was also a good bit of suspense and a layer of lies and deception which kept the plot mo...

    Yes, three stars for a Sonali Dev book. I can?t believe I?m writing this and meaning it. Before I go any further, I want to say two things. First: This isn?t a bad book, and Ms. Dev is an amazing author. Second: this review is my personal opinion, which, since I?m only hum...

    I was enchanted from Sonali Dev's dazzling book cover with adorned brown legs, and I am pleased to share that this heartwarming romance did not disappoint any of my high expectations! ...

    I was lucky enough to snag an ARC of A Distant Heart at RWA this past July and jumped at the c hance to read it ASAP. Sonali's writing is lyrical and evokes all the emotions and feelz. You are immediately transferred to Mumbai and her descriptions are so vivid, it makes you feel lik...

    Kimi and Rahul struggle with so many challenges that both unite them and separate them. Class distinctions in their native Mumbai, terrible medical disease and uncertainty, and loss. Yet there is the presence of hope and of dreams, of friendship and of love. This book brings me to tear...

    I got an ARC of this book at RT. This story is set in Mumbai and it's a continuation of the previous book (A change of heart). We were introduced to Kimi and Rahul in the previous book. The previous book was a bit dark. Especially from the authors other works. This one is much ligh...

    A story that is told in two voices, both of which tell their side of the story in a mix of flashbacks to past and distant past events, using these voices and the concept of ?love? to explain, justify, share and provide pivot points on which the story moves forward, sideways and occ...

    4.5/5 Stars This book is easily my favorite in the Bollywood series so far. It definitely has a different feel than the other books in the series since it flashes back to Kimi and Rahul?s childhoods and it takes place in India, but I think it?s all the better for those things! ...

    There is always a danger when you are waiting anxiously for a book that it won't live up to your expectations. Sonali Dev set the bar incredibly high with her previous books and there is always that worry that the next one will be a weak link in the chain. Fortunately, Dev is better th...

    RESEÑA EN ESPAÑOL (AND A LITTLE COMMENT IN ENGLISH) Lo bueno: Me gustó la pareja, los dos son adorables, y amo la trama de "amigos a amantes". *Diversidad. Lo malo: No suelo decir esto pero por Dios: que mal escrito. *MUCHOS FLASHBACKS. En lo personal los detesto, me p...

    I just finished A Distant Heart by Sonali Dev, and it?s left me with so many feelings! Like any Bollywood movie worth its salt, Rahul and Kimi have their ups and downs, flashbacks, action, family drama, debilitating sickness even, but it?s their connection that keeps them going abo...

    Oh, goodness. I haven't read  A Change of Heart  yet (there is no excuse--I have the audiobook! I've read all of her other books! This year just got away from me :(...) and since this one is somewhat connected, there are some mildly spoiler-ish bits. But that didn't stop me from l...

    My first book of 2018, and I hope the rest of the year is better. This book just didn't work for me -- I started it a few times and had trouble sticking with it. If I hadn't committed to reviewing it, I might have stopped reading it. I guess what was wrong is that I just didn't lik...

    I took off a star because it was just a tad too hard for me to remember the intertwining stories from the previous books. Each new book features a new-ish set of characters that are tangentially linked to the last book and boy, I love that idea. It makes this world so broad. But al...

    I?ve never read a book by this author before but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I?ll definitely look up more books by this author. The characters and storyline intrigued me. I loved everything about it ...

    I have to say that I didn't like this one as much as the last couple from this author, but I had to give it 4 stars because she writes in such a gorgeous way. I expected to feel a lot more while reading this, which didn't quite happen, but I still raced through it and enjoyed the story...

    Disclaimer: I am not generally a fan of the romance genre, but Sonali Dev's novels have become like comfort food for me. This one is set in Mumbai but has the flavor of a Jane Austen drawing-room drama; the action takes place in private rooms, difference in social class looms large, an...

    Sonali Dev is a master of literary romance novels and she's at the height of her power here. It's been interesting to see how her work has evolved from A Bollywood Affair, which was fun and breezy and relatively innocent, to this novel which seems to be the culmination of a journey int...

    Loved it! Still wiping tears from my eyes as I type this. Happy tears, though. How I adore Sonali Dev. Love her. Love her books. ? I took my time reading A Distant Heart even though I had a deadline to rate and review it within two weeks of its release. I wanted to not only delve...

    A Distant Heart takes up the story that was started in a Change of Heart. Now the focus is on Rahul the police officer chasing down a criminal ring who steal hearts on the black market. Rahul has suffered much loss in his life, he comes from a poor family and has always fought his ...

    I sat next to Sonali at an RWA book signing in Orlando this year, and managed to talk her out of an advance copy of A DISTANT HEART. I fell in love with this series after reading A Bollywood Affair, and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. The thing is, every once in a great w...

    A book that is almost impossible to drop into a neat category. It's part suspense, part gritty crime tale, wholeheartedly romantic, and a most unusual Rapunzel tale. I loved that it was set in Mumbai, and yet was completely accessible. Loved Sonali's voice, which is highly original and...

    A Distant Heart is a friends to lovers story set in India that I quite enjoyed. I loved the way in which the author told it. Showing the hero and heroine's first meeting as children and how their relationship evolved over time. Nothing between moves quickly, it's a slow build up that i...

    I have a love affair with Sonali Dev's books. She writes such good words. Words that usually completely break my heart (it's still broken after reading A Change of Heart) but she repairs it and gives us a shiny HEA at the end with all the smiles. The heroine in this book, Kimi, literal...

    Originally published at Reading Reality It?s all Kimi?s fault. Not just the events in A Distant Heart, but also everything that happened in A Change of Heart. Both the good and the bad. But especially the bad. The problem is that Kimi doesn?t know it?s her fault, or that ...

    This is my first Sonali Dev book and surely not my last wow!!! What a fantastic ride this was. I didnt read the book before this one and was still able to follow the events with ease. The story told by switching between present day events and Kimi and Rahul's past and it was done so ...

    Yes, three stars for a Sonali Dev book. I can?t believe I?m writing this and meaning it. Before I go any further, I want to say two things. First: This isn?t a bad book, and Ms. Dev is an amazing author. Second: this review is my personal opinion, which, since I?m only hum...

    4.5/5 Stars This book is easily my favorite in the Bollywood series so far. It definitely has a different feel than the other books in the series since it flashes back to Kimi and Rahul?s childhoods and it takes place in India, but I think it?s all the better for those things! ...

    There is always a danger when you are waiting anxiously for a book that it won't live up to your expectations. Sonali Dev set the bar incredibly high with her previous books and there is always that worry that the next one will be a weak link in the chain. Fortunately, Dev is better th...

    I just finished A Distant Heart by Sonali Dev, and it?s left me with so many feelings! Like any Bollywood movie worth its salt, Rahul and Kimi have their ups and downs, flashbacks, action, family drama, debilitating sickness even, but it?s their connection that keeps them going abo...

    Oh, goodness. I haven't read  A Change of Heart  yet (there is no excuse--I have the audiobook! I've read all of her other books! This year just got away from me :(...) and since this one is somewhat connected, there are some mildly spoiler-ish bits. But that didn't stop me from l...

    My first book of 2018, and I hope the rest of the year is better. This book just didn't work for me -- I started it a few times and had trouble sticking with it. If I hadn't committed to reviewing it, I might have stopped reading it. I guess what was wrong is that I just didn't lik...

    RESEÑA EN ESPAÑOL (AND A LITTLE COMMENT IN ENGLISH) Lo bueno: Me gustó la pareja, los dos son adorables, y amo la trama de "amigos a amantes". *Diversidad. Lo malo: No suelo decir esto pero por Dios: que mal escrito. *MUCHOS FLASHBACKS. En lo personal los detesto, me p...

    I just finished A Distant Heart by Sonali Dev, and it?s left me with so many feelings! Like any Bollywood movie worth its salt, Rahul and Kimi have their ups and downs, flashbacks, action, family drama, debilitating sickness even, but it?s their connection that keeps them going abo...

    Oh, goodness. I haven't read  A Change of Heart  yet (there is no excuse--I have the audiobook! I've read all of her other books! This year just got away from me :(...) and since this one is somewhat connected, there are some mildly spoiler-ish bits. But that didn't stop me from l...

    My first book of 2018, and I hope the rest of the year is better. This book just didn't work for me -- I started it a few times and had trouble sticking with it. If I hadn't committed to reviewing it, I might have stopped reading it. I guess what was wrong is that I just didn't lik...

    I took off a star because it was just a tad too hard for me to remember the intertwining stories from the previous books. Each new book features a new-ish set of characters that are tangentially linked to the last book and boy, I love that idea. It makes this world so broad. But al...

    I?ve never read a book by this author before but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I?ll definitely look up more books by this author. The characters and storyline intrigued me. I loved everything about it ...

    I have to say that I didn't like this one as much as the last couple from this author, but I had to give it 4 stars because she writes in such a gorgeous way. I expected to feel a lot more while reading this, which didn't quite happen, but I still raced through it and enjoyed the story...

    Disclaimer: I am not generally a fan of the romance genre, but Sonali Dev's novels have become like comfort food for me. This one is set in Mumbai but has the flavor of a Jane Austen drawing-room drama; the action takes place in private rooms, difference in social class looms large, an...

    Sonali Dev is a master of literary romance novels and she's at the height of her power here. It's been interesting to see how her work has evolved from A Bollywood Affair, which was fun and breezy and relatively innocent, to this novel which seems to be the culmination of a journey int...

    This was a romance written against the backdrop of Mumbai. Written in twin timelines (absolutely my fave), we witnessed the love of Kimi and Rahul grow. I was especially touched by the myriad of familial relationships that are in this story, and the layer of suspense within the book. T...

    I sat next to Sonali at an RWA book signing in Orlando this year, and managed to talk her out of an advance copy of A DISTANT HEART. I fell in love with this series after reading A Bollywood Affair, and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. The thing is, every once in a great w...

    A Distant Heart is not my favorite from Sonali Dev but it remains very likable and engaging, especially if you like romantic suspense with plenty of emotion. This book provides alternating timeframes along with characters you may recognize from Dev's other novels. The delicate subject ...

    You can find this and many more reviews on my blog Marianna's Corner! The story is set in India, Mumbai and follows two people, Kimi and Rahul, as they form an unlike friendship. They come from two completely different worlds; Kimi is rich, whereas Rahul is extremely poor. However t...

    Loved it! Still wiping tears from my eyes as I type this. Happy tears, though. How I adore Sonali Dev. Love her. Love her books. ? I took my time reading A Distant Heart even though I had a deadline to rate and review it within two weeks of its release. I wanted to not only delve...

    A Distant Heart takes up the story that was started in a Change of Heart. Now the focus is on Rahul the police officer chasing down a criminal ring who steal hearts on the black market. Rahul has suffered much loss in his life, he comes from a poor family and has always fought his ...

    A book that is almost impossible to drop into a neat category. It's part suspense, part gritty crime tale, wholeheartedly romantic, and a most unusual Rapunzel tale. I loved that it was set in Mumbai, and yet was completely accessible. Loved Sonali's voice, which is highly original and...

    A Distant Heart is a friends to lovers story set in India that I quite enjoyed. I loved the way in which the author told it. Showing the hero and heroine's first meeting as children and how their relationship evolved over time. Nothing between moves quickly, it's a slow build up that i...

    I have a love affair with Sonali Dev's books. She writes such good words. Words that usually completely break my heart (it's still broken after reading A Change of Heart) but she repairs it and gives us a shiny HEA at the end with all the smiles. The heroine in this book, Kimi, literal...

    Originally published at Reading Reality It?s all Kimi?s fault. Not just the events in A Distant Heart, but also everything that happened in A Change of Heart. Both the good and the bad. But especially the bad. The problem is that Kimi doesn?t know it?s her fault, or that ...

    This is my first Sonali Dev book and surely not my last wow!!! What a fantastic ride this was. I didnt read the book before this one and was still able to follow the events with ease. The story told by switching between present day events and Kimi and Rahul's past and it was done so ...

    See the full review at HarlequinJunkie.com Sonali Dev?s beautiful prose wove a complicated and deeply emotional tale for readers in A Distant Heart. Ultimately a friends-to-lovers trope, there was also a good bit of suspense and a layer of lies and deception which kept the plot mo...

    Yes, three stars for a Sonali Dev book. I can?t believe I?m writing this and meaning it. Before I go any further, I want to say two things. First: This isn?t a bad book, and Ms. Dev is an amazing author. Second: this review is my personal opinion, which, since I?m only hum...

    I was lucky enough to snag an ARC of A Distant Heart at RWA this past July and jumped at the c hance to read it ASAP. Sonali's writing is lyrical and evokes all the emotions and feelz. You are immediately transferred to Mumbai and her descriptions are so vivid, it makes you feel lik...

    Originally published at Reading Reality It?s all Kimi?s fault. Not just the events in A Distant Heart, but also everything that happened in A Change of Heart. Both the good and the bad. But especially the bad. The problem is that Kimi doesn?t know it?s her fault, or that ...

    This is my first Sonali Dev book and surely not my last wow!!! What a fantastic ride this was. I didnt read the book before this one and was still able to follow the events with ease. The story told by switching between present day events and Kimi and Rahul's past and it was done so ...

    See the full review at HarlequinJunkie.com Sonali Dev?s beautiful prose wove a complicated and deeply emotional tale for readers in A Distant Heart. Ultimately a friends-to-lovers trope, there was also a good bit of suspense and a layer of lies and deception which kept the plot mo...

    Yes, three stars for a Sonali Dev book. I can?t believe I?m writing this and meaning it. Before I go any further, I want to say two things. First: This isn?t a bad book, and Ms. Dev is an amazing author. Second: this review is my personal opinion, which, since I?m only hum...

    I was enchanted from Sonali Dev's dazzling book cover with adorned brown legs, and I am pleased to share that this heartwarming romance did not disappoint any of my high expectations! ...

    I was lucky enough to snag an ARC of A Distant Heart at RWA this past July and jumped at the c hance to read it ASAP. Sonali's writing is lyrical and evokes all the emotions and feelz. You are immediately transferred to Mumbai and her descriptions are so vivid, it makes you feel lik...

    Kimi and Rahul struggle with so many challenges that both unite them and separate them. Class distinctions in their native Mumbai, terrible medical disease and uncertainty, and loss. Yet there is the presence of hope and of dreams, of friendship and of love. This book brings me to tear...

    I got an ARC of this book at RT. This story is set in Mumbai and it's a continuation of the previous book (A change of heart). We were introduced to Kimi and Rahul in the previous book. The previous book was a bit dark. Especially from the authors other works. This one is much ligh...

    4.5/5 Stars This book is easily my favorite in the Bollywood series so far. It definitely has a different feel than the other books in the series since it flashes back to Kimi and Rahul?s childhoods and it takes place in India, but I think it?s all the better for those things! ...

    There is always a danger when you are waiting anxiously for a book that it won't live up to your expectations. Sonali Dev set the bar incredibly high with her previous books and there is always that worry that the next one will be a weak link in the chain. Fortunately, Dev is better th...

    I just finished A Distant Heart by Sonali Dev, and it?s left me with so many feelings! Like any Bollywood movie worth its salt, Rahul and Kimi have their ups and downs, flashbacks, action, family drama, debilitating sickness even, but it?s their connection that keeps them going abo...

    A Distant Heart takes up the story that was started in a Change of Heart. Now the focus is on Rahul the police officer chasing down a criminal ring who steal hearts on the black market. Rahul has suffered much loss in his life, he comes from a poor family and has always fought his ...

    A book that is almost impossible to drop into a neat category. It's part suspense, part gritty crime tale, wholeheartedly romantic, and a most unusual Rapunzel tale. I loved that it was set in Mumbai, and yet was completely accessible. Loved Sonali's voice, which is highly original and...

    A Distant Heart is a friends to lovers story set in India that I quite enjoyed. I loved the way in which the author told it. Showing the hero and heroine's first meeting as children and how their relationship evolved over time. Nothing between moves quickly, it's a slow build up that i...

    Oh, goodness. I haven't read  A Change of Heart  yet (there is no excuse--I have the audiobook! I've read all of her other books! This year just got away from me :(...) and since this one is somewhat connected, there are some mildly spoiler-ish bits. But that didn't stop me from l...

    My first book of 2018, and I hope the rest of the year is better. This book just didn't work for me -- I started it a few times and had trouble sticking with it. If I hadn't committed to reviewing it, I might have stopped reading it. I guess what was wrong is that I just didn't lik...

    I took off a star because it was just a tad too hard for me to remember the intertwining stories from the previous books. Each new book features a new-ish set of characters that are tangentially linked to the last book and boy, I love that idea. It makes this world so broad. But al...
