When the Cheif fell in Love  is a love story blended with suspense and thriller to bind the readers with the book. Author has done amazing job with narration and characterization. Though certain loopholes, the book is still an enjoyable read.

Book Cover and Title- Book Cover is eye pleasing and soothing and goes well with the content of the book. The mountains and snow covered land with blood stains gives us slight hint about Kashmir, love story with dash of obstacles.

Other characters are also justified well.

Storyline and Plot-

Storyline of this book is unique and keeps readers hooked with book.

Storytelling skills of Author is amazing and the picturesque and detailed description helps readers imagine scenes in our head.

First part of the story is slow paced and it took few chapters for me to get into story.

Second part of the story is fast paced and is interesting with certain twists and turns and a major suspense which holds back readers with the book. Author has done fine job placing story. However climax could have been better explained.
