About the Book:
This is the first book I read of Novoneel Chakraborty. My friend had borrowed this book from our common friend. While she was returning it her back, I saw the title of the novel ‘Marry Me, Stranger’ and it made me curious to read the book as I wanted to know what’s the story of this stranger and so I borrowed it from her. As soon as I borrowed it I read the prologue but unfortunately since I was in office, I couldn’t read more.
Next day, I started reading and completed it with another curiosity to read the next part.
Rivannah had shifted to Mumbai from Kolkata as she had got placed in a Software Company. As soon as she reached Mumbai, she started noticing that a stranger is following her. The stranger is a blackmailer, who blackmails her for her own good. He asks her to learn to prepare her favourite dishes. If not he’ll make her cry. She ignores his message. And he reveals the truth of his love ‘Ekansh’ who was cheating on her. The stranger helps her many times, Like by helping her to get her MMS clip from Prateek who liked her in school days and his obsession for her continued in office too.
