It’s time to interview Miss Tiara Swan- an orphan, new to the city of Vale, and a victim to a grave crime. Ever heard a victim plead not guilty for a criminal? No?

As Tiara joins forces with the Narcotics; with Derek- the only officer to truly understand her; she embarks her journey on a meticulously planned operation and yet no one accounted for love. Will she choose her heart over her allegiance or will her heart suffer? And if so, at what cost?


"Fatal Love" by Urmi Sanghavi Mehta is a riveting tale that delves deep into the complexities of love, loyalty, and betrayal. Set in the vibrant city of Vale, the story follows the journey of Tiara Swan, a young orphan who finds herself entangled in a web of crime and deception. Mehta takes readers on an exhilarating journey through the tumultuous life of Tiara, a determined orphan with dreams of making her mark on the world. Divided into 15 chapters, each intersperses Tiara's present-day conversations with reflections on the past six months of her life, painting a vivid portrait of her struggles, triumphs, and the unexpected twists that fate throws her way.

The premise of the novel is as intriguing as it is unconventional: a victim pleading not guilty for a crime committed by her lover. Tiara's unwavering belief in Jake's innocence sets the stage for a gripping narrative that keeps readers on the edge of their seats from start to finish. As Tiara joins forces with the Narcotics department, led by the empathetic Derek, to uncover the truth, she must confront the painful reality that love can blind even the most rational minds.

At it's core, "Fatal Love" is a romantic thriller that grips readers from the very first page. Tiara's chance encounter with the enigmatic Jake sets off a chain of events that propel her into a world of danger and intrigue, where love and betrayal go hand in hand. Mehta artfully weaves together a complex web of relationships and emotions, drawing readers into Tiara's innermost thoughts and feelings as she navigates the duplicitous waters of love and loyalty. In addition to Tiara and Jake, another character who leaves a lasting impression is Derek, whose unwavering devotion to Tiara serves as a beacon of hope in a world filled with uncertainty. Derek's kind-hearted nature and unconditional love for Tiara resonate deeply with readers, evoking sympathy and admiration for his character. His presence adds an extra layer of depth to the narrative, highlighting the importance of friendship and loyalty in the face of adversity.

What sets "Fatal Love" apart is its richly drawn cast of characters, each with their own unique personalities and motivations. From Tiara's supportive friends to the shadowy figures lurking in the background, every character feels fleshed out and three-dimensional, adding depth and complexity to the narrative. Readers will find themselves emotionally invested in the lives of these characters, rooting for them in their moments of triumph and mourning their losses.


Mehta's prose is elegant and evocative, painting a vivid picture of a bustling town and its lively streets. The place itself becomes a character in the story. What truly sets "Fatal Love" apart is it's exploration of the human condition and the lengths to which we will go for love. As Tiara grapples with her emotions and wrestles with the consequences of her actions, readers are drawn into a world where morality is not always black and white, and the line between right and wrong becomes increasingly blurred.

While "Fatal Love" is undeniably a page-turner, there are moments where the pacing falters slightly, particularly in the later chapters where the plot twists come fast and furious. However, Mehta's skillful storytelling and keen understanding of human nature keep readers engaged until the very end.

In the conclusion of "Fatal Love," readers find themselves on the edge of their seats as the intricate web of relationships and betrayals reaches its climax. Tiara, now deeply entangled in the dangerous world of drug cartels and undercover operations, must confront the painful consequences of her choices. Her love for Jake is put to the ultimate test as she grapples with the truth behind his actions and struggles to reconcile her feelings for him with the harsh reality of his involvement in criminal activities.

As the tension mounts and the stakes soar, Tiara's loyalty is torn between her heart and her sense of justice. With each revelation and plot twist, Mehta keeps readers guessing until the very end, expertly building suspense and drama with every page turn.

As the dust settles and the echoes of the past fade away, readers are left with a sense of closure and catharsis. "Fatal Love" is not just a tale of romance and betrayal, but a poignant exploration of the resilience of the human spirit and the power of love to transcend even the darkest of circumstances. With its gripping narrative, memorable characters, and heartfelt prose, Urmi Sanghavi Mehta's debut novel leaves an indelible mark on the reader's heart and mind, reminding us that in the end, love conquers all.
