All Signs Lead Back To You | Book Review

I was given All Signs Lead Back to You by Aniesha Brahma as an Advance Review Copy for an honest book review through Book Tours.
As the final bell for the day rang on their last day in school, Diya Rai, had a chill run down her spine. The chill of not knowing what the future holds for her and her high school sweetheart, Ashwin Chowdhury.
So she does a preemptive strike.
She dumps him before he can hurt her.
Two years later, Ashwin and Diya, cross paths. Each holds grudges, feelings and only one half of the story that completes them.
Told from alternating points of view, through a non-linear timeline, this is the story about first love, second chances and ALL the SIGNS THAT LEAD BACK TO YOU
All Signs Lead Back to You is a short love story, but not about the usually lovely dovey romance, but the love in friendship. A friendship that grew apart to later find one another and reconnect.
Aniesha Brahma uses a non-linear format in order to tell the story of Diya Rei and Ashwin Chowdhury. It goes from the present time of 2015 to 2012 or 2013. Using these time shifts the reader can understand the characters personality and the relationship they had with one another.
The writing is quite simple and very straightforward. It is not very description heavy and at some points I wish it was, because I had a difficult time picturing the characters clearly.
It was an overall enjoyable book, but I wished the characters were fleshed out more. We were given glimpses to several characters like Nina, Trina and Rishabh but we weren’t really explained their purpose. Nina was fleshed out more than the other two. Trina and Rishabh are the significant others of Ashwin and Diya Rei. But other than that readers are to given much, especially when Trina and Rishabh are described as the complete opposite of our leading characters. There was brief mentions of Diya’s and I feel like that could have been milked more.

Like I said, it was an enjoyable book. And as someone who does not read contemporary I did not find myself bored or annoyed with the characters which is a massive plus. With only having 140 pages it was a very quick read, I personally read it in one sitting.
