Book By- ADHYA KRISH
Today I am writing a blog on my first book- Anikaa & The Mystery of The Painting, which is now available on Amazon Kindle. Firstly, I will give you a brief synopsis of the book-
Do you know the secret of hidden tribes in Himalayas? Neither did Anikaa until she found the riddle in the painting.
After attending the engagement ceremony of her brother, Anikaa Mehra travels back to her home in Munnar. One sunny afternoon, she goes for a short cycling trip where she meets a strange man named- Jiyu who warns her of a mystery which is going to enter in her life. ‘A mystery that is craving to be solved’- were his exact words. Soon, Anikaa receives dinner invitation from an unknown American billionaire- Richard Sturrock who forces her to take his dead wife’s last painting. Why would a man offer his wife’s last painting to a complete stranger? The question was baffling her enough when Anikaa finds a unique form of riddle, hidden in the painting.
What was the riddle? Why was it unique? Read the first book of the series where Anikaa solves the riddle in the painting and discovers the secret of hidden tribes in Himalayas.
What makes this book so special?
Mostly, we read and see stories where the male protagonist is the hero and the heroine is nothing but an eye-candy, waiting to be loved and rescued. And, so I decided to make a strong female protagonist who despite having flaws is the hero of the story. Anikaa Mehra is a stubborn, capricious and reserved girl which makes her enigmatic to the rest of the world. She has her own set of rules which she doesn’t follow. She lives by the motto- ‘Live and let live’ and never imposes herself on anyone. When you will read the story, you can definitely relate to Anikaa- either you’re her or you want to be like her.
‘The mystery of the painting’ is the title of the first book in Anikaa series because here she finds the riddle hidden in the painting. This riddle is unique, which you will get to know, once you start reading the book. There are twists and turns in the story at every point. You will find presence of friendship, loyalty, thrill, suspense and romance in this book. And, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
