    1. This book was a new adventure for me, and I found the immersion in a culture very different from my own to be interesting and enlightening It takes place in modern day India and is a romance through and through, focusing on a marriage of convenience between a young widow and a businessman in his 30s who finds himself in need of a wife to please his cancer stricken mother It is a slow burn romance that takes place over several months, but the attraction simmers beneath the surface Lalitha and Shr [...]

    2.

    3. This was a simple, heartfelt book For me, coming from a similar background and belonging to Chennai, I could relate to the places and the customs and Tamil words littered in the book and a huge part of the book s appeal to me was this ability to relate to the milieu The book never felt like a social commentary on how people look at remarriage, it just observes the everyday problem of a woman who is thrown in this unfortunate circumstance for no fault of hers This is a marriage of convenience for [...]

    8. This one was as Intriguing as it could have been, a fast paced read that I completed on the very day I started it.Author has done a nice job in depicting the dilemma, the protagonist Geetha had, while struggling to strive in the conservative society or if it had been from turning a Sorry Pair to the one it meant to be.As an Independent woman, having conflicts in deciding if it is right to get one s self bound by the sacred bounds of matrimony just to avoid a financial ruin , clearly depicts the [...]

    9. This novella by Sumeetha Manikandan is hypnotic and deeply rooted in the hypocrisy of our society Manikandan gently prodes the pretence that is ingrained in our minds in the name of marriage and comes out beautifully with this absolute delight With strong characters and an equally strong yet vulnerable female protagonist as well as a gud premise, this book has all the correct ingredients to be loved by all romantic buffs like me Lalitha, a beautician is in inner turmoil after she becomes a widow [...]

    10. Yes, I call it a love story.A simple beautiful love story of two beautiful souls whose trust was broken in the past.And the story is about how they get into marriage for each other s benefits and later realize the love they have for each other.The other point which the author has made is how people still believe that a widow is inauspicious.The narration is so simple and easy.The distance and time have made them fall for each other.The conversations which both of them share are really sweet.The [...]

    11. I loved the premise that Sumeetha creates a beautician who suddenly becomes inauspicious when she is widowed We feel with the protagonist as she asks herself, why she was acceptable when she was estranged from her husband for a decade, and no one had an issue But having learnt of her husband s demise her parlour business is on the brink of closure.Enter a convenient marriage, and a convenient husband And then it is pure MB SMS, emails, a plotting servant, entry of the ex flame, the ailing mother [...]

    12. Romantic at heart Loved it Matter fact, love it so much that instead of going into the house to read the book, I just stayed in the car to finish Story fills the romantic at heart.

    13. These Lines of Mehendi is a novella with a lot of spunk and substance I have read Sumeetha s earlier novel, The Perfect Groom and find that her stories always have a message, a depth and move you with not just the romance but relevance as well.The story is of second chances and the fear to fail again Both the Lalitha and Shrikanth have faced heart break and are least interested in marriage That life finds them at a turn where marriage becomes their only solution is the crux of the book The autho [...]
