DEBUT Maya is en route to Pakistan for her arranged wedding to Imtiaz, her fiancé of two years, when a severe storm forces her flight to make an emergency landing in Switzerland, stranding her for days. She decides to make the most of her detour by exploring the Swiss sights with Sarfaraz, her seatmate on the flight. They encounter more bad luck when they finally arrive in Pakistan, as a bus breaks down and forces them to travel together again. The harrowing situations they go through together create a strong bond between them, making it increasingly difficult to part ways. Once Maya finally arrives at her family’s home, on the eve of her wedding, she must decide whether to play it safe and marry her longtime fiancé, who’s always been respectful and caring and whom she hopes to fall in love with after marriage, or to take a chance at real and passionate love with Sarfaraz.
VERDICT Rooted in Pakistani and Muslim culture and faith, this romance is a fun romp that features plenty of adventure and plot twists. Recommend to fans of Uzma Jalaluddin.
