Editorial Reviews


'The sassy narrative is solid chick lit, with all the requisite chatter about yummy food, body type, finding a guy and loser dates---it's refreshing to have Tang's voice in Christian fiction.' -- Publishers Weekly <br><br> (Publishers Weekly)

From the Publisher

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 family.

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.

Format: Paperback
Only Uni by Camy Tang is the second book in The Sushi Series. This book focuses on Trish, flighty, flirty, and newly driven to focus on God. Trish has made a multidtude of sins in her past, including sleeping with her creepy artist ex-boyfriend. But she's decided to change all of that. No more looking at men, time to preach the Gospel, and rely on God for strength. But, her new research partner, Spenser is too handsome to ignore, her attempts at volunteering at church seem to end up with blood being spilled, and it's hard to remember to keep your mind always on God. Tang writes with such zest! Her quartet of cousins are best friends, and the banter between them is never stilted or preachy, even when they talk about their faith. The dialogue sounds like she transcribed a group of real women. They call each other on their foibles and comfort when the going gets tough. Trish is a hard character to empathize with; her mind bounces from one thought to the next so quickly, that it could be hard for the reader to keep up, but Tang handles it with flair. Trish comes across as a real flesh and blood woman with deep regrets about her sexual past. Tang throws a shocker in near the end of the type that isn't normally seen in Christian fiction (good for her!). It's realistic and painful, but I look forward to watching Trish's character continue to grow in the next book. The first chapter for the next book, Single Sashimi, is included in the back. Don't read it unless you're a masochist like me; now I have to wait until August to see what happens next!

I thoroughly enjoyed Camy's first book, Sushi for One? but the character of Trish annoyed me. I found her flaky and shallow. So I wasn't sure if I'd like an entire book about her. Camy, why did I ever doubt you?

In Only Uni we get to meet the real Trish Sakai in all her wonderful, flawed glory. What I love about this book is how real Trish is. She's made mistakes - lots of them - but she longs to live the way God wants her to. We go along for the ride as she struggles to work her way into God's good graces, until she finally realizes that His grace was there for her all along.

There's a lot of stuff going on in Only Uni, but Camy keeps the pace moving with loads of humor and some real heart-tuggers. Toward the last third of the book, she turned down a road I wasn't expecting, then she did it again before the end. It's part of what makes Only Uni such wonderful, authentic read.

Since this is the second book in the series, the obvious question is: Do I have to read Sushi for One? first? No, but it will be a lot more fun for you if you do!

Format: Paperback
Despite loving Sushi for One?, I had my doubts about this book. In the first book of the Sushi Series, Trish Sakai, the heroine of this one, is portrayed as something of a jerk, the reason agnostic Aiden Young refuses to even consider dating Christian women (at least until force of nature book one heroine, Lex Sakai, unintentionally demolishes all of his defenses). But Trish was also the only cousin Lex told about her rape and the rock Lex leaned upon to get her through that. In this book we really get to know Trish Sakai, and it turns out she's really not such a bad person; she's just a girl who cain't say no, either to fattening food or to men, or at least to one man, her Svengali of an ex-boyfriend Kazuo Kawakami.

But this time Trish is determined to turn her life around and devote herself to God and enlists the help of her three cousins, the only other Christians in her large extended family. Unfortunately, this isn't the first time she's asked them to help her pick up the pieces after she's messed up so they are more than a little skeptical, especially when they hear the rather rigid if Biblically based rules she's set for herself. But Trish really, really means it this time.

The trouble is that events seem to be conspiring against her.

Format: Paperback
Only Uni is one of the best books I read in 2008 and definitely my favorite title in the Sushi series. In Sushi for One, Trish Sakai did not seem like a very pleasant character but in Only Uni, readers see the real Trish. She is a flawed but ultimately likeable character. The temptations that she deals with and the way she struggles to do the right thing really moved me. It is rare that I find a character in a Christian fiction novel that touches me (I even teared up a little in the end!). The message of grace and forgiveness is so strong in this book and it is wonderful watching Trish grow as a person and grow in her faith, falling in love with God and with a guy who is worthy of her. I enjoyed reading the conclusion of her story in the final book, Single Sashimi.
