The Drunken Wife is an homage to love that stands by when the going gets tough. It is the love that fights for its love. The book is fast, fun and full of a lot of fireworks! Sundari has kept the pace of the first book in the series and book 2 has all the elements of a good read and it a quick read as well.

Smart, sexy and setting hearts aflutter, Shikha and Abhimanyu left me a happy reader. The book has romance as well as substance – a trademark of Sundari who always manages to mesh common sense, kindness, wisdom, romance and love into yet another best seller.

Shikha is bit money minded, self-centered woman, in fact initially she was on the verge of being rude and selfish. I wondered how she could be the heroine? But love is blind and she cleaned up pretty neatly! It is when we see her through the eyes of Abhimanyu that we realise the simple, insecure girl hidden behind the gruff facade.

I loved the premise of the book, the need that Abhimanyu feels for his wife and how he goes about solving her problem, one that she does not even realise she has. Her husband not only loves her but also ensures that she is her best. Insolent at times she tries to drive him away but then true stays and fights for togetherness.

From a money minded selfish woman, she is transformed into a much-loved woman – that is the power of love. Like the ideal man, Abhimanyu is not only hot, handsome, rich, and kind he is cool as well. Sure of his love and his girl he pulls out all the stops to ensure his love is valued.

The Drunken Wife is another book in a series that will leave you eager to read the next one. I know I am off to pick the next one since all 5 books are on top of the charts.

His Drunken Wife

(Marriages Made in India, #2)

The badass Shikha is startled when the nerdy Abhimanyu proposes marriage. She loves… herself, and Abhimanyu doesn’t figure on her list anywhere. For Abhimanyu, however, it was love at first sight when Shikha walked into RS Software, where the two of them work.

When Abhimanyu shows her that he just might be rich enough for her, a pleasantly surprised Shikha accepts his marriage proposal and moves into his swanky apartment.

But it looks like the love is all from only Abhi’s side as Shikha continues to drink herself crazy. Yeah, even at their wedding party.

And then Abhi sets out on a honeymoon to Thailand with His Drunken Wife…

*MARRIAGES MADE IN INDIA is a five-novella series that revolves around the characters you have met in The Runaway Bridegroom.
