    The best book to read on a bad day.Susi Rajah is witty and her one-liners (especially on god) are quotable.

    Sydney is one of the smartest, most independent, and most honest women I have come across in a while. Wish we could get drinks together one night! :D

    I began this book hoping to be amused, but gave up halfway through. Perhaps it's just my current mood, and I'll laugh next time, but it just seemed trite!

    Sidney Welles is assigned the Catholic Church image overhaul campaign and sets out to give the church a face lift of sorts…what ensues is a hilarious stumble through questions of faith, love and self discovery.Susi Rajah’s solo debut has proven beyond the shadow of a doubt that contemporary literature or Chic Lit can be thought provoking and outrageously funny without requiring the reader to check their common sense and intellect at the door.Sydney Welles was one of those career women that s [...]

    I was really expecting a lot of fluff out of this book, and I was pleasantly surprised. By no means is this book serious, but it was kind of cute and fun. It was a tad predictable, though not in any really annoying way. Anyone who reads this should have some tolerance for a little language (not too much) and the accepted stages of American relationships. Beware, though, the author has some funny ideas about Mormons.

    A friend wrote this book and I love her and this creative story. It's set in the world of advertising and follows the life of Sydney Welles asking God various things makes you think yet entertains at the same time. For anyone in the industry, it's a must-read.

    Sydney works in advertising in L.A. and has a hard time believing in anything. Enter the Catholic Church, which wants to hire her ad firm to help its image. Also, enter a relationship she may or may not be ready for. I enjoyed the wit of this novel, all very tongue-in-cheek and sarcastic. Plus there are the funny emails/letters to God, all offering a little more than the typical chick-lit book in terms of thinking points. I fully believed that this book took place in L.A.; I've encountered most [...]

    Funny, well written, with great pacing, characters, and dialogue. I stopped reading because the content was a little too adult for my tastes (which run decidedly PG) and also the blasphemy factor was a turn-off for me.

    Definitely chic-lit, but I was pleasantly surprised. By no means will this book win any awards, but it was kind ofcute and fun. I even found myself laughing out loud in parts.
