What if life threw you a magnificent opportunity, only to knock you down later and laugh at you?! Would you fight back or let it pass?!
Nisha's life is far from perfect. At twenty six, she is plump, plain looking, and without a boyfriend. A chance to date and a bizzare twist of events lead her to the altar with suave samir Sharma, only to be abandoned eight years later. As she struggles to stand on her own feet, Akash, a younger guy enters her life. Can Nisha find love a second time?!
Tea for Two and a Piece of Cake is an unusual, a heart-warming, and gripping love-story between two people who have so much to lose by getting into relationship with each other, yet so much to gain.
Well once again I'm totally impressed with this writer. Tea for Two and a Piece of Cake finally makes its way in 177th page of the book where Mrs. B confesses with Nisha during their conversation.
The early 2 books of Preeti Shenoy are run away best sellers and now this one too joins the club after the release. Having said that she holds major share in my inspiration list. She is the reason why I'm here today at Blogger and scribbling something which I like to do all time.
TTPC is all about Nisha's life (Plane-Jane) a middle class plump girl. She finds Samir and they make love and finally get married right after her father's sudden dismissal. 8 years passes by and she is now settled in completely with her 2 little kids Tanya and Baby Rohit. Everything seems to be alright by then. All of a sudden Samir walks out of the home leaving Nisha behind.
Nisha struggles to get over it. She was betrayed and insulted. She never expected such a turn over in her life. Finally she realizes to relocate herself and wanted to stand on her own two feet.
Akash a friend of her accompanies her in all the activities she do and offers her an idea which guides her life back on track. And finally Nisha finds second love in Akash and makes a happy ending.
The above is just a brief narration of the book and it was very well written by Preeti Shenoy.
Every single word made by Tanya touched me. After all I felt like having a baby girl like Tanya. It's love to have such kids around. The way Tanya shows tenderness towards Rohit and calms down Nisha by saying Mama you are the best and Papa will come back soon. Very Sweet of her. I just loved Tanya.
On the other end I expected samir to get back home but that is how life goes. When someone leaves you behind its not we keep weeping for them to comeback. We have to make a move on after making 2-3 attempts.
Mrs. B is not like all other oldies and she is very kind enough and played her role better. She made the title for this one by adding her chocolate cake to Nisha's Tea. Collectively making Tea for Two and a Piece of Cake. and also with an impressive statement.
You can be old at twenty five and you can be young at sixty three. It's all in the head.
Akash played a backing role in Nisha's life after samir walks out. He took the onus and done his job marvelously well. The Card that he sends to Nisha made a lot sense and the surprise gift to Tanya was impressive. I'm happy for Nisha not getting married to Akash because It would really disappoint me. Finally I like the decision that Nisha made.
The "Pesky-Puskis" is the best phrase I came across reading this one.
Now that I've completed all the books of Preeti Shenoy. I'm eager for her 4th book to be out.
