After catching her husband having an affair and being fired from her job, Maggie Walsh suddenly finds her perfectly organized existence has become a perfect mess. She decides, for the first time in her life, to do something daring -- and flees to her best friend, Emily, in the faraway wonderland of Los Angeles. In this mecca of tanned, beautiful bodies, unsvelte, uncool Maggie is decidedly a fish out of water. Yet, overnight, she's mixing with film folk, pitching scripts, even experimenting with sex -- and discovering that the end of a marriage is not the end of the world.

Angels by Marian Keyes........I cannot believe this book was even published.....does anyone actually read this slow moving rather silly book....I found it lacked energy and interest and carried on reading in the hopes it would get better....half way through I decided it was an utter waste of time and the only good thing about is was the fact that I think anyone could write a book as shallow and silly as this one.
Totally agree with some of the reviews....obviously Maria Keyes has written great novels in the past...might be time to give up. What is it they say everyone has one good book in them....after which its a downward slide.
And people actually paid money for this ......I certainly didn't thank goodness
Maybe Sushi for Beginners is a better read...I will wait for that to turn up at the charity shop Maybe!!!

Easy Read
