I love Marian Keyes books, engrossing, a great yarn, and some great home truths about men, women & relationships!

From Review

Having read Rachel's Holiday, Marian Keyes's latest book, I thought I should definitely read one of her earlier novels. I had been looking for a laugh-out-loud romantic comedy to read and Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married did not disappoint. What great novel! This book shouldn't be compared to Bridget Jones -- it shines its own light.

Lucy Sullivan has received the news of a lifetime: a psychic has predicted that she will be married within a year. The problem is that she has no idea to whom. Who is the lucky man? No one knows. Of course, the search for Mr. Sullivan will take some interesting and rough turns, for Lucy isn't exactly a girl with very high dating standards.

The story is very reminiscent to a Jane Austen novel -- it has that heroine-looking-for-love-in-all-the-wrong-places-but-wouldn't-notice-the-true-love-of-her-life-if-it-hit-her-in-the-head theme. I also loved the neurotic characters. Lucy's roommates -- Karen, bossy and high maintenance and Charlotte, ditsy and naive -- are hilarious! As are Daniel (he seemed adorable), Megan, Meredia and Gus. I laughed so much with this one. In fact, I was given some puzzled looks on the train on my way to work. My only complaint is that having read Rachel's Holiday, I have detected a pattern in Keyes's writing -- a pattern that I cannot discuss for it might spoil the plot.

Funny, charming, and as irresistible as it is addicting, Lucy Sullivan should be on everyone's reading list!
