Number one internationally bestselling author Marian Keyes works her magic once again in this charming tale of three modern women and their search for happiness.

Prada-wearing magazine editor Lisa Edwards thinks her life is over when her "fabulous" new job turns out to be a deportation to Dublin, launching Colleen magazine. No more jet-setting to the fall collections. No more fabulous parties and photographs in the society pages. The only saving grace is that her friends aren't there to witness her downward spiral. Might her new boss, the disheveled and moody Jack Devine, save her from a fate worse than hell?

Ashling Kennedy, Colleen's assistant editor, is an award-winning worrier, increasingly aware that something fundamental is missing from her life -- apart from a boyfriend and a waistline. And then there's her closest, oldest friend Clodagh "Princess" Kelly, who is apparently living the domestic dream in a suburban castle. So why, lately, has Clodagh had a recurring urge to kiss a frog -- sleep with a frog, if truth be told?

Set in the sparkling -- and serpentine -- world of women's fashion magazines, as well as the hilarious underground comedy club circuit, Sushi for Beginners is about searching for happiness. And how, if you let things bubble under the surface for too long, sooner or later they'll boil over. Sharp, funny, and sweet, Marian Keyes's latest novel confirms her place as the queen of contemporary fiction.

Decent book, interesting enough to keep me reading! However definitely not as good as Keyes' new book she published recently. It's a more sophisticated romance story. Rather than just the slime focus on love, or focus on work it's a clash of both. Problems couples experience, and that sort of thing! A little to mature for me, as I felt a bit overwhelmed with the problems that have not yet had the chance experience. But I guess it gives a good reality check and gives you a prep of how life can go! A good read.
