Shadow In The Mirror 
by
Deepti Menon

Publisher: Readomania 





Blurb

It all begins with a death. Nita, a pregnant woman falling from her balcony becomes the string that unravels the plot. Her death casts a shadow over many lives; her heartbroken father, her husband and Vinny, a young journalist, drawn in by the whiff of foul play and murder.

What follows are stories within stories, eras and worlds colliding with each other, leaving behind splintered relationships and mesmerizing slices of lives that appear to be drawn together and driven apart by the whimsical threads of destiny.
As events cast their shadows ahead to link the stories of Vinny, Kavita, Roma, Krish and Nita in an unrelenting knot, a journey starts to uncover the truth. What is the secret that links Nita’s death to the other characters? Will Vinny be able to unravel the mystery of Nita’s death?

From intimate diary entries and letters, to bantering over a meal and sharing memories while spring cleaning, this novel de-familiarizes the ordinary, presenting a kaleidoscope of our own pasts, broken edges and pulsating hearts.

About the Author



Deepti Menon has always believed in the power of the pen. Having done her post graduation in English Literature and her B.Ed. in English, she had the option of teaching and writing, and did both with great enjoyment. She started writing at the age of ten, long before she acquired a Diploma in Journalism. She also had the advantage of being an Army kid, and later an Army wife, and loved the idea of travelling around India, meeting new people and acquiring new skills. She firmly believes that much of her personality was honed during those travels.

In 2002, her light hearted book, ‘Arms and the Woman’, depicting life as seen through the eyes of an Army wife, was published by Rupa Publishers, Delhi. This was written mainly to reveal the warmth and camaraderie within the great institution. She is now working on her second book that is a work of fiction, and not- to-be divulged yet!

#TornadoGiveaway3 :- Book # 75 – Dirty Martini by Kavipriya Moorthy

Standard

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.
