The Writers’ Retreat
The Writers’ Retreat is a highly commercial, laugh-out-loud chick-lit from established writer Indu Balachandran
Young Amby Balan has had enough with the 9 to 5 life at Citibank. She impulsively quits her job and becomes a Twitter-writer for KayKay, the hot new Kollywood superstar. But despite her new exciting job (and having the opportunity to ogle her new boss all day long), Amby still craves finally being able to fulfil her dream of becoming a writer.
She comes across an ad for a writers’ workshop in Greece and cannot pack her bags soon enough. On the way to Santorini, she meets Mini Cherian, a bestselling children’s books author who fantasises about writing erotic novels, and Bobby Verma, who left behind the advertising world to become a travel writer.
Together, they will embark on an unforgettable adventure to finally discover their true selves and possibly find love in romantic Santorini.

NetGalley Book Reviews
Krystal J.: What a delightful gem of a novel! Three brown women on a picturesque book cover drew me in but relatable characters and believable challenges had me devouring this book. (4*) Also reviewed on Goodreads.
Michelle C.: This story was a bit hard to get into at first. However, once the story got going it was very good. Amby and KayKay were a couple that was enjoyable to get to know and watch the relationship progress. (4*)
Truusje S.: The Writers’ Retreat is such a fun and entertaining book. I absolutely loved it. Great characters with even better dialogue. (5*) Also reviewed on Goodreads.
