Maya Kapoor arrived in Mumbai with a glamorous dream, quite literally. Maya wants to be a serious fashion writer for the high-end fashion magazine, Glamorous but luck is not in her favor. Instead, she lands a job with a local fashion magazine, Style. Maya hates everything about it but for now this is all she has. Despite all the odds, Maya is excited about living an independent, fashionable life in the city of dreams.
At twenty-five, love has eluded Maya. But when she bumps into the dashing photographer, Aryan Malik, she falls head over heels for his gorgeous smile and charming manner.
But Maya seems to be stuck in a rut – her credit card bills are sky-high, her melodramatic mother can’t stop ranting, the boss is unbearably cruel, her younger sister has decided to tie the knot, and she’s not sure if Aryan could love a simple, confused girl like her.
Will Maya get the fairytale life she dreamed about or will she let everything slip through her fingers? Read her diary and find out.

A big thanks to the author for providing me with an ARC of this book. I read the story within a few consecutive days. Being a fan of chick-lit, this didn’t disappoint. The main character was extremely likeable, realistic and with her flaws and problems, at times, made you feel sorry for her. I definitely rooted for her happy ending. The novel is descriptive and wonderfully written. The dialogue between friends is realistic, the sort of gossip you’d have with your friends. It was also nice to learn more about the Indian culture, and their upbringing. The main character was true to herself, and never gave up on her dreams. Well done, Swati! A brilliant first novel for a new author!
