Description

WHAT HAPPENS
When what lies between the sheets become the lines that is washed in public?

Sapphire Towers: Just another residential high-rise in Mumbai where the humdrum routine of daily life carries on with clockwork precision. But beneath the tranquil surface lurks a web of lies and deceit spun by a group of lonely housewives.

Gita, frustrated mother of two young daughters, longs to escape the monotony of her marriage and lusts after a forbidden relationship. Sarita, conservative Gujarati housewife and mother, is addicted to kinky sex and pays a dear price for it. Stylish working mother, Aarti, nurses an appalling secret that could end her marriage. And sultry ex-model Natasha, who seems to have it all, is hopelessly in love with a much younger man—the son of one of her friends.

Even as these women scramble to conceal their darkest secrets, an anonymous email is sent out to all the residents of Sapphire Towers with horrific consequences.

Racy and unputdownable, Scandalous Housewives: Mumbai is the first book in the sizzling new series by bestselling author Madhuri Banerjee, which tell the stories of the unsung housewives of urban India who will go to any lengths to fulfill their deepest, darkest desires.



Author’s Note:

Sapphire Towers is a housing complex in Mumbai that is ?ctional. It is based on the observations I made about several housing complexes across Mumbai. The new complexes in Mumbai all have a similar design. There are two or more buildings in a complex called a society. The society has a swimming pool, a gymnasium, a walking track or park with swings and slides for children, and a clubhouse where parties or society meetings are held. A few might even have a lake behind them with a swampland or a tennis court along the premises. Some towers are connected through a refuge ?oor if the buildings are very close to each other. This is a ?re safety norm for the buildings. Each society has an office that looks into the maintenance of the society, and is run by members chosen by the owners of the flat at a General Body Meeting.

In Mumbai, apartments are known by BHKs, which means Bedroom, Hall and Kitchen. A 3 BI-IK would be an apartment with three bedrooms, a large drawing- and dining-room, and a kitchen. The members can avail the complex facilities whenever they’re free. Most times, the members of the society really have no time to partake in any of these, but sit in the playground near the swings where the children play.
