My Rating: 4 Stars
Description: Senior biologist Trish
Sakai is ready for a change from her wild, flirtatious behavior. So
Trish creates three simple rules from First and Second Corinthians and
plans to follow them to the letter. No more looking at men as possible
dates, especially non-Christians. Second, tell others about Christ. And
third, she will persevere in hardship by relying on God. And just to
make sure she behaves, she enlists the help of her three cousins, Lex,
Venus and Jennifer, the only Christians in their large extended
But Trish's dangerously tempting ex-boyfriend, Kazuo the artist,
keeps popping up at all the wrong moments, and her grandmother, who has
her eye on his family money, keeps trying to push the two of them back
together again. Then there's Spencer, the hunky colleague at work who
keeps turning Trish's thoughts in the wrong direction.
It just isn't fair.
She's trying so hard, but instead of being God's virtuous woman, she's
going nuts trying to stand firm against two hunky guys. Trish thought
following her three rules would be a cinch, but suddenly those simple
rules don't seem so simple after all.
My Thoughts: This book was great. Tang comes at the difficulties of life with humor. If her heroines didn't know how to laugh at themselves, I sure they would go crazy with what they go through. In this book, Trish learns that what matters in life is what God thinks of her and not what everyone else does. It's a lesson that I sometimes have to remind myself of.
The one thing that keeps this from being five stars it that some of the plot elements are the same as in Sushi for One? If it were not for that, I would definitely have rated it higher.
