Okay word lovers, back today as promised!
Unless you’ve been holidaying on a romantic, remote island with zero Internet facilities (in which case I envy you!), I’m sure you’ve all heard that our very own, our wildly wonderful, witty and popular blogger Lady Kay – or Kiran Manral, as she is also known :–p – has finally written a book! Yaaayyy! This has been a long time coming, but “The Reluctant Detective” has been worth the wait. A quick, easy, breezy read, is replete with Kiran’s trademark sardonic humour and wacky but oh-oh-true observations on the people who inhabit our world.
The story revolves around 30-something Kanan Mehta, Kay to her friends, a mommy of-one, tackling issues that I and countless women the world over, are only too familiar with – grumpy spouse; tantrum-throwing, junk-food loving child(ren); the battle of the bulge and of course, the most difficult one of them all – what do I wear today? When Kay stumbles upon two corpses in her neighbourhood, one after the other, she gets pulled into detective work, albeit reluctantly, to douse the fires of her curiosity – and of course to make sure the guilty are punished. As the blurb says, this book is a ‘hilarious account of how not to get involved in other people’s murder’ and you need to pick it up now.
If you haven’t read it yet, then I am going to make it fun for you to get one absolutely free – and signed by the author herself! All you have to do is answer the following questions:
1) Where did I finish reading more than half the book at one go? (Hint: the protagonist would be very proud indeed!)
2) What kind of an adventure would you like to see Kanan Mehta embark upon next?
3) And finally, what profession would you be absolutely reluctant to pursue and why?
To make this even more fun, the winner will not only get a signed copy of ‘The Reluctant Detective’ but another surprise as well!
So, spread the word and let’s have some wacky answers here!
Winners will be announced on February 15th 🙂
