Flipkart Official Review
A lot is happening in this book and rightly so – given the quirks of its main characters and the action from Mumbai to Goa and back, “Tuki’s Grand Salon Chase” is one heck of a read. Understated and witty, Parul knows her characters inside out and churns them out in the plot successfully to give the reader what he or she wants: A nice page turner.
Tuki wants her own salon. She now works at Nancy’s Factory and all her plans seem to go to waste with Faraaz’s entry to the salon as the new tattoo artist. She also is on the lookout for an elderly writer who has just disappeared and to save someone from destitution. Parul’s writing is brisk and yet sometimes it tends to be dragged in some parts. Besides this, this one is all in all your regular Sunday read. Something that will refresh and set you for the coming week
Tuki's Grand Salon Chase is about a young girl who is chasing her dreams of owning her own salon. She works at Nancy's Factory which is the salon for the chic and sophisticated, but this is not enough for Tuki. However, her well laid out plan goes haywire as she is not able to handle the new events of her life and decides to run away from them.
