Book Review : Tea for two and a piece of cake


One day, My friend and I were discussing his favorite topic and topic was LOVE. Most of the time, I act as listener and he act as speaker (most of time, it turns into one sided discussion 🙂 ). Here is little chit-chat with him.

Friend: So, what’s meaning of LOVE according to you? (He always start discussion with Question and I always hate him for same)
Me:Hmm, It depends on How you see and How you think. (I always answer him like same)
Friend: Yaar, why your answer is same every time for every question.
Me: Ok. Shoot me next question or tell me the story instead of asking the question. (and most of time, he starts one side discussion)
Friend: You know, there are two types of Love, actually 3 types.
Me: Stop there.. There is only one type which starts from heart and ends at heart.
Friend: Whatever.. I am not agree with you.
Me: You never agree with me but one day, you will find such Love and Now, stop discussing this topic with me else I will leave. (and first time it happened, he stopped discussing it)
[I had this discussion some years back with him and later, he found pure love, married and right now, settled in life and having one child also].

Why suddenly it appears in my mind right? “Tea for two and a piece of cake” partially covers story of Love in some sense.

Love is not blind – it sees more, not less.

But because it sees more, it is willing to see less.

Nisha’s life is far from perfect. At twenty-six, she is plump, plain-looking and without a boyfriend. A chance date and a bizarre 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 a love a second time? Is Samir’s love heart to heart love?  Is Akash’s love heart to heart love?

This book is really unusual, a heart-warming and gripping love-story between two people who has so much to lose by getting into a relationship with each other, yet so much to gain. You can see author’s writing improved amazingly in “Tea for two and a piece of cake”. Far better than her earlier 2 books. You will love to read this book.
