Vegas to Varanasi Review...

Title- Vegas to Varanasi
By- Shelly Hickman



Anna has never been the beautiful one; she’s always been the nice one. So when the gorgeous man sitting across the table at a wedding reception remembers her from high school—and quite fondly at that—she’s taken off guard. Formerly overweight and unpopular, Kiran has never forgotten Anna, the one person who was kind to him when no one else could be bothered, and Anna’s a bit flustered as she slowly comes to grips with his intense attraction for her. In what feels like a romantic dream come true, all-grown-up, hunky Kiran invites Anna on a trip to Varanasi. But her troubled, whack-a-do ex-boyfriend starts interfering, creating drama at every turn, which begs the question, “Can nice girls really finish first?”

This book is interesting . It's got a lot going on in it . I love the way it started with Luke and the kids.Kiran is a super guy that had a huge crush on Anna in high school and they meet up at a wedding. Sparks are flying in my opinion but she is in a relationship with David ,an unhappy one as David seems to be an alcoholic and a liar. So David decides that it's not worth fighting for and moves out . Finally Anna and kiran are kinda dating but he seems scared to me. . They go to India and that's where things really come to a boiling point with everything,especially David. I really can't say anything else as I don't want to give everything away. The ending was well done. I love a great epilogue!!!
