Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married by Marian Keyes
Release Date: April 30, 2002
Versions: hardcover, paperback, kindle
Summary (from goodreads):
Lucy Sullivan is getting married, or is she?
Lucy doesn't even have a boyfriend. (To be honest, she isn't that lucky in love.) But Mrs. Nolan-a local psychic-has read her tarot cards and predicted that Lucy will be walking down the aisle within the year
Lucy's roommates, Karen and Charlotte, are appalled at the news. If Lucy leaves it could disrupt their wonderful lifestyle of eating take-out, drinking too much wine, bringing men home and never vacuuming. They might even have to-God forbid-clean up the apartment to lure in a new roommate. Lucy reassures them that she's far too busy arguing with her mother and taking care of her irresponsible father to get married.
And there's the small matter of no boyfriend. But then Lucy meets Gus, gorgeous, unreliable Gus. And she starts to wonder if he could be the future Mr. Lucy Sullivan. Or could it be handsome Chuck? Or Daniel, the world's biggest flirt? Or even cute Jed, the new boy at work?
Maybe the idea of Lucy Sullivan getting married isn't so unlikely, after all.
I really enjoyed this book, and by that I mean I loved this book. It was written so well and had a whole bunch of humor that made me laugh out loud. Lucy's probably my favorite female heroine because she's strong and knows what she wants in life. Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married by Marian Keyes starts out with Lucy's coworkers dragging her to Ms. Nolan to get their cards read. Lucy's very hesitant and doesn't believe in fortune telling but when Ms. Nolan announces that she'll be getting married before the end of the year-it freaks her out a little. Lucy's never had a very long relationship. But when she meets Gus-she wonders if he's the one. But then there's Daniel-whose bachalor status doesn't stop Lucy's roommate from going after him. Daniel and Lucy have been friends for a long time so Lucy starts wondering why he keeps asking her to do things with him-and why she's starting to like it.
The only flaw in this book, which isn't a major flaw, is Gus. His character is portrayed as being annoying and clingy. And he's always drunk or ditching Lucy. But Daniel-I liked Daniel. He's a guy that can take care of Lucy and put up with her charms. The scenes in the book fly past and by the last page, you'll be wishing Marian Keyes wrote twice as much.
Will I reread it?
Yes, I actually have read it around four times already because I really enjoy the book. I love Lucy's and Daniel's friendship as well as Lucy's parents who are a little eccentric. I recommend this book to any fans of Kristan Higgins.
