Adite Banerjie’s new book, Trouble has a New Name, is the story of Rayna Dutt and Neel Arora set in Andaman Islands.
Rayna Dutt, a model, is on the way to Andaman Islands from Mumbai on a chartered flight, to attend her best friend, Milee’s wedding. Rayna being Rayna, reaches the aircraft wearing a pair of flip-flops, almost misses the flight and drenches a co-passenger in orange juice. To top it all, a mix-up with room allocation forces her to share a luxury villa with the same co-passenger, who is none other than Neel Arora, the groom’s business partner and dear friend and also the co-promoter of the resort. He is also the best man at wedding and she, the Maid of honour.
She suddenly sees Sid Verma, her ex-boyfriend, who had dumped her five days ago by sending her an SMS, at the same resort. She asks Neel if he would pretend to be her fiancé for the next few days.
Neel is a workaholic and cares about two women in his life, his mother and his younger sister Meera. He stays away from relationships. He agrees and one day, says goodbye and disappears.
A lovely story with lovable characters. The friendship between Rayna and Milee is so open and I loved their OOOs (you will have to read the book to find more). I liked Rayna’s book of Immutable Laws. Rayna’s dialogues especially when she puts her foot in her mouth, which she does all the time, are so natural. Neel is the typical Tall, Dark and Handsome and his feelings have been described making him more human than the western heroes.
I loved the book and the cover is awesome.
