  • Description
    Mini plans fairytale weddings, but she knows there are no fairytale marriages. The initial magic of her own marriage with Shyam has vanished, leaving behind a hunger that she tries to assuage with chocolates. She fantasizes about a 'dream lover', but she is over the hill, overweight and unconfident. The chances of tumbling into a passionate intrigue with a gorgeous man are bleak, she thinks. Or are they? For, not so far away, in Mumbai, the glamour capital, the scion of an erstwhile royal family has decided to wed a Bollywood starlet, and Mini is soon on her way to plan this 'no-budget' wedding with the enticing Rustom - head of the city office, handsome, sophisticated, and every bit the ladies' man. It doesn't take Mini long to decide that if Rustom is a skirt-chaser, she is going to shape up and get into the kind of skirts he likes to chase. Is Rustom the 'dream lover' she has been hunting or is Sicko Shyam going to drag her back to the dregs of their marriage? Either way, the Second Coming promises to be steamy and full of trouble and hilarity - not always at her expense.

    The protagonist like any of us is confused yet in her own ways is simple and straight forward. The moment I had the book in my hand , wanted to finish it in a day as could not wait to know what will be the ending. Thank God it was a happy ending.

    Awesome read

    This book is a definite treat to read. Throughout the book, I was smitten by Mini's escapades and absolutely loved the chocoholic cherub. After a long time, I finished a book in a marathon reading. I couldn't put the book down as Mini's antics kept me turning pages. A light, fun, and interesting read.

    Fabulous

    Shubha Menon did a fantastic job. This is rom-com with a lot of comedy and lot of romance. In fact it has more humor and satire than comedy.
    Our heroine Mrinalini Mehta aka Mini is a happily married woman who is also regarded highly in her office also. She lives happily with her hubby Shyam Mehta who is a cricket enthusiast. Her boss Mahatta calls her Mrinalini and regards her as a top notch wedding planner. But is she happy? No. why?
    “It was not as though Shyam was a bad husband. Far from ...

    Quirky, with a message!!!

    Shubha Menon’s The Second Coming deals with second chances in a refreshingly different way. When I heard about the plot, I knew for certain that I had to read this book!!! And I am glad I did. It is funny, quirky, refreshing, and a quick read.
    The Second Coming is a story laced with a little twist here and a slight turn there-another thing that I liked about it. The characters are beautiful and relatable. Out of the three characters, I liked Shubha’s potrayal of Shyam the best. A quick revela...

    Fast, fun read

    I got the autographed book at the launch and I do no regret it.
    Great fun story that is a quick read and takes you through a journey of funny, sensual anecdotes. My favorite part is that the characters come to life on every page and I can genuinely identify with who these people are.

    Get your copy! it's worth it!

    GREAT INSIGHTS INTO THE NEW PROGRESSIVE INDIAN WOMAN

    The second coming is a piece of work that delves into the new age woman's mindset and peels many insights about her. The new Indian women who is not afraid to disturb her equilibrium and seeks pleasure for the sake of pleasure alone. A woman who is critical of herself and how she looks yet does not let it come in way of who she desires to be. Some of the instances are sooo true and makes you feel..this is ME!! Well done Shubha!
