Tea for Two and a Piece of Cake (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.110

Tea For Two And A Piece Of Cake is a heartwarming love story about a plain Jane sort of woman, whose life is suddenly turned upside down, only to be reordered once more with the help of a good friend.

Summary Of The Book

Tea For Two And A Piece Of Cake features Nisha as the protagonist. She is portrayed by Shenoy as a woman who feels plain, imperfect, and plump, and as a woman in whom no male would take interest in.

Life throws a loop one day when she loses her job, which she valued more than anything else in her life. And just as she relinquishes all hope, fate sends Nisha a life saver in the form of Samir Sharma. Rich, Ivy-league educated, and dashing, fate really smiled at Nisha, as soon afterwards the pair head to the marriage altar.

Alas, the mundaneness of domestic life throws a new wrench into Nisha’s happy life. Slowly but surely, her relationship with Samir begins to change, and even more so when two children come into the picture. After eight years of marital bliss and the security that comes with marriage, Samir’s announcement comes crashing down on Nisha and her world. Samir reveals that he wants to leave Nisha for another woman, a younger one at that.

After recovering from the shock, Nisha struggles to gather herself together and leaves with her children. It is when her friend Akash enters the picture, that the plot of Tea For Two And A Piece Of Cake changes to a positive tone. As Nisha regains her self confidence and pieces together the shattered remains of her life, her friendship with Akash deepens. But Nisha’s past never fails to haunt her nor does she feel it appropriate to burden the young Akash with her problems.

Tea For Two And A Piece Of Cake was published in 2012 by Random House India. It was in the top five bestsellers list in India for 2012.

Bold and Refreshingly Different !

Once again Preeti Shenoy has managed to surprise me. And How! Usually authors tend to follow the same pattern of thoughts and plot for all their books but this is where Preeti stands apart from the rest.

Tea for two and a piece of cake is very different from not only her earlier works but also from the other books in the market. As she had done with her previous book, Preeti dares to go off the beaten track once again, this time to explore different facets of human relationships, be it love or friendship.

Once again Preeti Shenoy has managed to surprise me. And How! Usually authors tend to follow the same pattern of thoughts and plot for all their books but this is where Preeti stands apart from the rest.

Tea for two and a piece of cake is very different from not only her earlier works but also from the other books in the market. As she had done with her previous book, Preeti dares to go off the beaten track once again, this time to explore different facets of human relationships, be it love or friendship.

Simply yet eloquently written, the story flows smoothly, but at a very fast pace. It is a gripping tale, and you really dont want to put the book down till you reach the end. But what really sets it apart is the way she has handled and described the intense emotional journey of the protagonists. As you read on, you realize the fragility and complexity of human relationships and that sometimes relationships just don't fall into the norms and regulations prescribed by our society- and it really does not matter that they don't !

Tea for two is not your regular love story about Love lost and found. This is a very bold and unconventional book; a book that explores the fabric of human relationships and forces you to question your very beliefs and perceptions about them.

Definitely worth a read !

Good Read

I am wary of reading books by Indian Authors as they seem to be trying to prove to the world how cool they are, use some hip language and slang...and they think have a masala pot boiler on their hands.
I recently picked up Tea for two ...and started reading yesterday...And before I knew it I was staying up to finish the book...The story line is not unusual but Preeti's portrayal of the characters and her language warmed me up to the book.She uses simple language, isnt dramatic and seems to have her feet firmly on the ground.

I recently picked up Tea for two ...and started reading yesterday...And before I knew it I was staying up to finish the book...The story line is not unusual but Preeti's portrayal of the characters and her language warmed me up to the book.She uses simple language, isnt dramatic and seems to have her feet firmly on the ground.
The protaganist is a woman I can identify with, someone who I could be friends with and someone who has lived her life as she wants and doesnt make excuses for herself.She lives life on her own terms, whether she wants to go on a drinking binge,partying with a good looking guy or living it up in Bali or where ever..She made her bed and she likes it that way.
No rona dhona and gyaan in this book and no looking down on this woman's morals which is what I liked...With Preeti's writing it seems like we are moving towards an India where women can do as they please and be responsible for it without having to ponder about the world looking down upon them with dismay.
The second half of the book dragged and was predictable but still it was readable.
Its definitely a recommended read on a flight journey home or on a night you want to do some light reading

~Get Ready With Your Tea~

Tea for two and a piece of cake, plus, of course, conversation... These small moments are what make life worthwhile.

The book starts in Mumbai, where the lead character ?????? Nisha-the-plump-plain-Jane lives. Her life takes an audacious turn in mesmerizing Bali leading to bizarre twist of events to happen again in Mumbai. A complete roller coaster emotional ride??????
The aromatic and apt portrait of a middle class and high class Indian society is commendable. You will see this world through the eyes of Nisha. Get ready with your tea as she will go on and on and on?????? There are moment...

The aromatic and apt portrait of a middle class and high class Indian society is commendable. You will see this world through the eyes of Nisha. Get ready with your tea as she will go on and on and on?????? There are moments when Nisha is talking to herself in her mind?????? that??????s the best part?????? Not a single word is going to bore you.

The characters are justified fittingly in their own way. The story is fast paced. Every chapter has something to talk about making the reader wonder what will happen next. I knew how the book will end but the writing style, the narration, and the way things happened one way or the other, kept me hooked. The language is simple. She writes in vibrant colors.

Trust in me in all you do
Have the faith I have in you
Love will see us through
If only you trust in me
Why don??????t you, you trust in me?
Come to me when things go wrong

Preeti righteously says, ??????Music always adds magic to love??????. This unusual story has all the chapter??????s titles with the names of the songs. I have heard some and have a vague idea about others. It did lead me to something which we call love (in a very unusual yet appreciative / obliged way). This concept will surely be cherished by all the readers.

Perfectly Unusual!

To start with, let me remember you a statement that you would have heard or read "All is fair in war and love" (from the JAB WE MET- Movie).

The Film makers say "We have conceived the movie in a different dimension and blah blah blah".but those movies would have got one more spicy item dance and unwanted scenes. There would be few movies which actually mean it. We love it and the makers do mean what they say and this applies to this book

Before reading the book, I had no idea about the story.As I have read all preeti shenoy's books, I beleived that "this is gonna be something unusual" and It was. You would heard about this word "Triangular love story". I should say this "A Cup of Tea and Piece of cake" is a right angled triangular love story :) and you would know it at once you have read the book. The story has two parts and they are narrated with extra-ordinary situations with perfect vocabularies.

This Story revolves around Nisha,Samir,Aakash,some friends and Tea (:)). Nisha should be a girl we would identify in our neighbourhood.A girl who loves to be loved.A girl who loves his work and little emotional towards it

Absolutely predictable and annoying

The book was very boring and didnt even require 10% of my attention span. Its quite a good book for people who love to do 3-4 things at once. You really dont need a brain to read this and it will not enrich your life in any possible way. Absolutely not recommended beyond a one time read. Use your money wisely!

quiet interesting

Preeti shenoy has done a good job, the novel is more overly a nice and interesting book.
Its mostly a girlish novel but boys can also read it. All over the novel describes between the two different man treating the same girl in their own ways.
