  1. Hey Sohini!
    This is Abhimanyu, the writer of Dilli-Mumbai Love Story.
    Thanks for such a nice review and I am happy you loved the book :-)
    I wanted to let you know that my 2nd book is out just a week back. It's a ghost series inspired by Oscar Wilde; and one reader called it the most unusual ghost story she had ever read and that she badly wanted more of it.
    I would be happy if you would want to be one of the first persons to review the book.
    Let me know by writing to me (abhimanyu dot jha at gmail dot com).
