Moonlit Matinee - And love takes over: A Review

‘Moonlit Matinee – And love takes over’ the name has perfectly complemented the cover. Any reader can easily pick this book by its wonderful cover. After reading the blurb and the foreword by Nandita Bose any reader can imagine the wonderful journey they are going to have throughout the book.

The back cover says – Welcome this ‘season of Love’ with never before effort by thirteen resplendent writers to pen most fascinating love scripts. Cheer the feeling of love with ‘Moonlit Matinee’ and love takes over. It is an unparalleled concept and the blend of Anecdotes, Sonnet, Lyrics and Ballad. This curbs the tale of Lust, Hatred, Sacrifice and Revenge in Relationship but finally it’s Love which ultimately overshadows everything.
