    Nothing new in the stories

    if you have already read 'Sister of my heart' & 'Vine of Desire' (sequel to Sister of my heart) you will find this book very disappointing. The stories seem to have the same kind of taste..either 2 sisters/ an extra marital with a sister-in-law/one sister staying back in India the other going abroad !!
    the worst thing is even the names of characters are also the same as Sister of my heart. You will find either an Anju or a Sunil, or a Dayita Or a Sudha in almost all the stories.
    Didn't expect...
