Sushi Series Book 3
Single Sashimi By Camy Tang
Sushi Series Book 3
Venus Chau lives a very controlled life. She works in the gaming world and being a woman is a disadvantage. When she was fat she was one of the guys or invisible. Now that she lost weight they look at her with other ideas. She just wants to get her program bug free and start her own company. Even if it means taking a job with Drake Yu and going to Grandma for help. Two things that go against everything in Venus.
I found this book to the be the most emotional. The characters are written in a way that they come to life and their trials come through the pages. The jealousy, betrayal, aggravation and trying to walk in four inch stilettos all seem to come alive. I say this in a positive way as the author has done a really good job of bringing the book to life.
Four cousins out of a large family have become Christians. The books are their struggles within the family and in their own personal walk with God. The series starts with Sushi for One? and then book 1.1 The Sushi Toss, which is a short, free read on Camy Tang's blog. Book two is Trish's tale in Only Uni and it ends with the fourth book, Jenn's story, Weddings and Wasabi. A unique series worth reading.

Each cousin in this series is so real, I expect to meet her. (And I think I do know the Grandma.)The entire series is one to read, and I so wanted the final book to come out, too. What I love most about these books is the voice.My favorite kind of book to read. A master storyteller, Tang is one to watch for whenever she brings out a new story. I look forward to more from her.

I was wondering why Zondervan had not released the audio book Single Sashimi. I was so taken by the story Sushi for One? Where a rape victim is forced back into dating by Her control-freak grandma issues an ultimatumif Lex cant find a date for Marikos wedding, her ruthless Grandma will cut off funding to the girls volleyball team that Lex coaches, that had been formerly coached by her deceased mother. A powerful moving story.Then I had to hear Only Uni a continuation of the five Christen cousins in a large Buddhist family. Where a flaky relationship obsessed person really refocuses her life on God only to be tempted and pressured to get back into a bad relationship. I would write more but it would be like telling you that Bruce Willis is a ghost in the The Sixth Sense. The book was stellar!Then Single Sashimi. I was a page turner, it was not boring. Major theme Honor your father and your mother, and latter tossed in Trust God. But it lacked the punch, Camy Tang was doing an Asian American modern Gilbert Morris style of Appomattox Saga that lasted him 14 books and Im on number 7 and they are cool!! But the Sushi series was awesome. In my review of Only Uni I said I beloved that is why God gave us the written language. But the depth of the soul and reachablity of the characters was missing. It did let you better understand grandma , but what was happening in Camys life.that when you expect a grand slam you get this bunt!!!This book is comparable to Amy Grants Next Time I Fall in loveAnd what is with this new book?? Deadly Intent

It's so exciting when an author you already love just gets better and better with every book - and this is definitely the case for me with Camy Tang's final installment in Ms. Tang's fun and sassy Sushi series, Single Shashimi. Of course, it could be the fact that Venus Chau is the most driven and snarkiest cousin in this colorful and hilariously realistic Asian family, but I don't think so. As much as I loved books one and two in this delightful series, Ms Tang has nailed this novel with a force that leaves you longing for more. But, alas, this is the final installment in the Sushi series trilogy, and I, for one, wish there were more.
