Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married by Marian Keyes

"When Lucy Sullivan is dragged by her friends to visit a psychic, she thinks it will be a bit of a laugh. She doesn’t believe for one second that the prediction will come true; there’s just no way that she will be married within the year!
In fact Lucy doesn’t even have a boyfriend. 
But then she meets gorgeous but unreliable Gus. And the handsome Chuck. Oh and there’s Daniel, the world's biggest flirt. And even cute Jed, the new guy at work. 
Is it written in the stars? Or will Lucy finally take control of her own destiny and find the perfect man?"

I'll admit that it took me a little bit longer to get into this book than it did with Watermelon but nonetheless, it is still fabulous.  Each of the characters are unique, completed defined and exceptionally well-developed.  

Lucy makes you want to bash her over the head as she keeps going for the wrong man and fails to see what is right in front of her face, and you have to wait right until the very end to breathe a sigh of relief, but the journey to the end is fun.  

Marian's books could never be described as pure chick lit fairytales as they also cover other real issues; in this case depression and alcoholism.  Her books always stand out from the crowd, as they are proper stories.  You don't feel like you are reading a book, instead you feel like you're living it.  This comes from the fact that the books are packed full of detail (but not in a way that you find yourself bored out of your mind) and you don't feel like anything is missing; no stone has been left unturned.  An incredibly special way of writing.
