Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married by Marian Keyes

Title: Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married

Author: Marian Keyes

Genre: Chick Lit

Summary: After a trip to a fortune teller, Lucy Sullivan finds out that she is getting married in one year's time. When the prophecies of her three office mates come true, Lucy begins to think that Gus might be The One.

What was Good: Good dialogue. Funny characters. Lucy is the sort of worker that everyone knows. Most days it's an effort even to turn her computer on. It is so much easier to gossip with her co-workers about her romantic life.

What wasn't: Predictable. The guy who you think she ends up with is the one she ends ups with. Except that I realized it when the page numbering was in the 20s and it didn't end until page 440.

The Take-Away: What is up with the Irish and going to fortune tellers? Every Irish author I've read has at least one of their characters headed to the fortune teller for a 30 pound or more reading.

Recommendation: It's sweet, but Ms Keyes is still developing her skills in this book.
