#TornadoGiveaway 3 : Dirty Martini by Kavipriya Moorthy

 

 

Name of the book: Dirty Martini
Author: Kavipriya Moorthy

The Story:

Life was all rainbows and daisies for the old-school, demure Preethi.

But an expensive mistake made her the oddball in the flashy world she chose. With her very survival threatened, an escape from the label the society had slapped on her seemed impossible.

When faced with a ‘why not?’ moment, Preethi found solace where she least expected it. Raghu walks into her life like a whiff of fresh air on a dewy morning. The elusive happiness he brought had the potential to heal the wounds life had inflicted on her. She could envision a future with him, provided he never discovers her past. However, fate played its favorite game, unraveling secrets she had brushed under the carpet, causing a rupture in their relation.

Preethi’s relentless pursuit to live to the fullest leads her on a different road to redemption, at a penalty. The sojourn costs her, her identity.

With her journey fueled by a need for companionship, will Preethi finally be at peace with what she had chosen for her life?

Dirty Martini dissects the judgmental, opinionated notions of the society. As Preethi treads on an arguably unconventional path, the journey evolves her threshold to understand the world better.

The Story:

A hero, a person who displays great courage for the greater good, can also fall. But what happens to a fallen hero? A Thousand Unspoken Words is the unique journey of a hero who falls. 

The champion of the underdogs, the writer who uses the nom de plume Musafir is famous in Kolkata. His incisive criticism of the injustices around him earn him many enemies but he holds his ideals above all else. Scathing attacks at his books and a night of hide and seek from political goons leads Musafir unto a path he never liked, faraway from his ideals. He runs away and chooses the comforts of money over the travails of following one’s ideals. The hero falls. 

But Tilottama, passionate fan’s hopes don’t. When he comes back after many years, emotions, love and lust take charge and an affair brews. Will she bring back her hero? Will he rise again? Or will the thousand untold words, the many stories of the ideal writer be lost forever?

#TornadoGiveaway 3 : Glitter and Gloss by Vibha Batra

#TornadoGiveaway 3 : Glitter and Gloss by Vibha Batra

 
Glitter and Gloss by Vibha Batra

Read some reviews:

1. Sophia Eriks 
2. Arti Metroreader
3. Sheetal Maurya


The Story:

A romantic comedy that is funny, contemporary and sharp.


Misha is a make up artist who, after a series of mishaps and twists and turns, falls madly in love with Akshay who reciprocates her love with ardour. The only hitch in this perfect romance is her prospective sister-in-law who thinks Misha is everything a Bahu shouldn’t be: garrulous, geeky, gawky, gainfully employed (especially the last bit). The question is will Misha win Didi (and the Kha-Pee Panchayat) over with her Stepford Wife Act? Will she continue to be the poster child for the inherent evils of the Bahu Brigade? Or will she learn to ‘lau’ herself before the whole world and its wife can do the same?
