When you love once and lose it, you tend to build a wall around you, so that no one is able to see the vulnerability. It is a challenge to Love, Again and this book wonderfully describes the journey of four individuals connected by love.
These Lines of Mehendi----
The story of Lalitha and Shrikanth's 'Marriage of Convienence' touched my heart. The mushy moments, the confusion, regret and their journey towards union is beautifully narrated by Sumeetha. All the characters are well sketched and narration is fluid. The language is very simple and you can easily finish the story in one sitting. The story also questions some age old beliefs that are still followed in most parts of India.
A story that makes you think and also makes you fall in love with the couple.

A Tulip in the Desert----
A perfect blend of history, facts,mystery, adventure and love. Raj and Charmaine's journey is one unique story and I personally feel that this story can be a full length novel. Shrruti's in-depth research shows in her writing and in the description of Egypt and Amsterdam. There are some questions to which the answers are hidden and to unreveal those answers you have to go on a quest.
Raj and Charmaine too go to the depths of History to find that connecting thread between them. How the story ends??? You need to grab your copy to read further.

Both the stories are unique and entertaining, a perfect read for Romantic Souls <3

These Mehendi Lines:

The story is about Lalitha who has been widowed recently and how the stigma of being a widow affects every aspect of our life, even the business especially if you are in the beauty business. Our society is so soaked up in superstitions, beliefs and some redundant traditions that we are such an unhappy people who tend to make the lives of others miserable too. It does not matter if a woman is physically or mentally abused and tortured, she must bear it silently. It does not matter if her husband is a looser, drunkard or a leech, she should stick to him and carry on being a married woman rather than be ridiculed in the society as a woman who was abandoned by her husband. It is still a very big deal.

And Lalitha’s fate is similar too. Having left her husband after finding out that he was already in a relationship with his own sister-in-law, she finds solace in her work as a bridal makeup artist. She has a thriving business and her work is appreciated. But her fate changes after her husband commits suicide and she becomes a widow. It is considered inauspicious for a widow to dress up a bride and so her business suffers.
Then comes along Shrikanth, the guy ditched at the altar (almost) by his long time girlfriend and fiance and is afraid to get into a committed relationship. Circumstances bring Lalitha and Shrikant together and they get hitched. It is a marriage of convenience and her business improves once she is a married woman!

And…everything ends well. The story is simple and gripping. Right doses of emotions and romance. The characters are real and do justice to their roles. The editing is good making it an easy read.

A Tulip In The Desert:

This story has a great storyline about reincarnation, soul mates and destiny.

“Love, again” is a delightful read. The cover is picturesque, with all the dreamy colors and the title is self explanatory. The first story, “These lines of mehendi”, has been beautifully crafted but is predictable to a large extent. The narration is lucid, the expressions and dialogues give life to the characters. Lalitha is the protagonist opposite to Shrikant and both the characters balance each other pretty well. The content is grammatically correct. The author has successfully portrayed a character of a strong woman, whose husband, in some way, cuts the ground from under her feet, but still she learns to survive on her own. Overall, a delightful story!
The second story, “A tulip in the desert”, is different in the way that it includes the flavor of Egyptian history too. The author has done sufficient research on Cleopatra and the twists and turn of events in the story keep the reader’s attention intact. The descriptions are picturesque and the plot has adventure mixed with strong emotions. This is one filmic story which leaves the readers wanting for more (A hint for the author to try converting this into a full fledged novella). The author has created a perfect balance between the personalities of the protagonists making it, altogether, an interesting read.
Kudos to both the authors!

Disclaimer: I received the PDF version of this book via The Book Club in return for my honest review. I received no monetary compensation for the same.

The book consists of two novellas by two authors. Let me deal with them separately.

THESE LINES OF MEHENDI by Sumeetha Manikandan (4-stars)

This is a story set in Chennai and is about Lalitha. The story opens with Lalitha rushing to Bangalore as Suresh, her husband of ten years had committed suicide. The wonder is that she had separated from him within a couple of months of marriage. Unfortunately for her, she had not bothered to divorce him. His death adorns her with the new title of “widow”. This brings her bridal services, at the beauty parlour she runs, to a standstill. How can a widow be employed to beautify brides-to-be?

Desperate to get her business back on its feet, Lalitha agrees to a strange marriage proposal of convenience, to the USA-based businessman Shrikanth. A sworn bachelor, he’s left with no choice but to get married when his mother puts him under pressure. She refuses to travel to the USA for her cancer treatment unless he gets married. And that is how Lalitha and Shrikanth tie the knot. You have to read the book to find out if their marriage works.

The story flows well and brings to the reader the flavours of Chennai as Sumeetha Manikandan takes you through the traditions and social norms unique to this area. The book has been written in crisp language and makes for an interesting read. I, for one, was keen to find out what happens to the protagonists and how they handle their marriage of convenience.

A couple of things that could have been better: Many instances and phrases have been repeated. This could have been avoided to make the book read better.
