e-Book Review: THE CONTRACT by Zeenat Mahal

Shahira is a 30-year-old divorcee with a small son and she is most definitely not interested in being tied to another man, ever. Hussain is a widower with a young daughter and is thoroughly disillusioned with matrimony. He’s a jet-setting businessman always on the move, while his daughter is brought up by his mother, Salma. Salma decides that Shahira and Hussain should get together and goes at it like a bulldozer. The two of them finally cave in and enter a contract. But what will happen when Hussain refuses to stick to his side of the contract? You will need to read the book to find out.

A very cute novel by Zeenat Mahal set in Pakistan. It felt so good to read about the happenings in our neighbouring country and I realised I did not know much about it. They are so like us.

The characters are well-etched and the relationship between Shahira and Hussain is quite stormy. Nudrat adds twist to the masala. I simply loved reading this book. Kudos to you Zeenat Mahal!

In the author's words, "I feel all marriages are a contract…some weirder than others :) and this one has a rags to riches kind of twist too. It’s for people who like the marriage of convenience classic plot, with loads of romance and glamour."
