Overview

To introverted and socially withdrawn singer and songwriter Jamie York, life has no meaning unless childhood love Sarah returns to him. Roaming through life without living it, shutting the world out, he has long since given up on a potential career in music.

It is only when he meets the unexpectedly inspirational Mukti that Jamie is lured out of the black hole he has banished himself to for years. Suddenly, his creativity knows no bounds and he feels torn - he has to see her, but what will she make of his tortured soul?

Little does he know that Mukti has her own secrets and is just as troubled as he is. Her name translates as 'freedom' in her native tongue Bengali, but she is anything but free.

Torn between his unconditional love for Sarah, and his undeniable need for Mukti, Jamie's life is in more chaos than ever before. And when his estranged mother Tanya becomes intent on sabotaging his relationship with Mukti, Jamie stands to lose the two women he cannot live without...

Set in contemporary London, 'Chasing Pavements', book 1 in the Soulmates Saga, is a unique love story between two unique characters that will stay with you long after you have turned the last page.

This is a story of two people with many secrets who end up helping each other get by those secrets and fall in love. Meet Jamie. Jamie comes from a privileged family. When the love of his life, Sarah, publically humiliates him, he becomes somewhat of a recluse. Jamie pretty much stops living, doing just enough to get by. He even suffers from writer’s block, unable to write his beautiful lyrics and music. That, is until he meets Mutki. Mutki has her own secrets. Being a middle child she feels her family, except her younger sister, ignore her. When her university boyfriend invites her to a party things do not go as planned and her life is shattered. She is not considered damaged and feels she will never lover again. Mutki gets a new job and starts taking her lunches outside by the needle. This is where Jamie and Mutki first meet and start their friendship. This is not your typical chic lit book. There is no sloppy romance and no mushy words. This is truly a one of a kind book. I loved how Jamie and Mutki’s secrets were not told at the beginning of the story. Little by little the story was told to me and it was told perfectly. Jamie started out being the character I was not sure I would ever really like or understand, of course I ended up truly loving him. I mean how could you understand someone who would not communicate with anyone, even when asked a direct question. Mutki was a character I felt sympathy for. I felt sorry that her family ignored her and did not offer her the support she needed and deserved. But I also was in awe of her strength. Even with no encouragement from Jamie she refuses to stop hoping to see him every day at lunch. Rain, snow, sleet, ice, nothing kept her away from the needle every day. I cannot believe this is Neha’s first book. It is perfect. This is definitely a must read.
