My Views:

Sincere apology to author Ankita Sharma for very much delay in reviewing of her book "The Wedding Trousseau and Other Short Stories" due to some unavoidable reasons and events.

A book containing short stories of same author has the danger of having  stories of same theme, same type content and repetition of thoughts, but Ankita sharma has chosen very different 11 stories which are fresh, of varied themes and taken from our day-to-day life.

The language of the book is  much more above than average chick flit books and the maturity in the thoughts makes her different from the league of many newbie authors or wanna be authors.

 
The Wedding Trousseau and Other Short Stories, the book containing stories of our day to day life, having different shades and emotions, is thought provoking and worth reading and not so happy ending in almost all stories forces the reader to think the so called realities of our society and life.

The build up in the plot of stories are well written and some times you may not be able to guess, where the stories gonna end. Some stories seem like they have unfinished ending, May be author has kept them intentionally.

Overall:
A fresh prospective, quite different from present days novels, in the form of short stories and each one promising enough to bind the reader to the book is not easy work and Ankita Sharma has done quite a wonderful job. 

Rating: 4/5

Thank you very much Ankita for sending me the book review for you.   I really enjoyed reading it.
All the very best for your book !!!
