It is a truth universally acknowledged … Esma is a modern Muslim woman with an age-old dilemma. She is well-educated, well-travelled and has excellent taste in music, but the hunt for Mr Right leads her to a number of Mr Wrongs. Together with wild-haired Ruby, principled Lisa, and drop-dead gorgeous Nirvana, Esma forms the No Sex in the City Club. Her quest for The One (or Mr Almost-Perfect) was never going to be easy, but soon enough it takes an unexpected and thrilling detour. 'Filled with humour and honesty, Randa has lifted the veil on arranged marriages and Muslim society, and proves that finding The One isn't easy for anyone, regardless of religion.' Kate Forster, author of The Perfect Location 'An enjoyable and unusual book about finding love down the arranged marriage route. Funny, wise and moving, it is also a tribute to the fabulous power of female friendship.' Jaishree Misra, author of Secrets and Lies and Secrets and Sins 'A lot of fun … there's a great deal of enjoyment to be had reading this tale!' Shelina Janmohamed

    Very boring.

    I would say is bad... I just didn't find interest in it.
    The story is about 4 strong, educated, independent woman, with different cultural background (that I like about the story).
    The story is minimized but their idea of getting married and their struggles finding "The One"

    Stay friends? Listen here, you moron, I’m almost thirty, I have all the friends I want in my life.

    How naive she must be to think that life is so safe and predictable that you can survive without some level of independence and autonomy.

    As I speak I realise that all the words in my vocabulary still can’t begin to convey my feelings over the course of the last year. Words will only get me so far. The girls’ capacity to empathise will take me a little further. But there’s still a gap filled with a complexity and incongruity of emotions that I can’t verbalise. How do I articulate that I’ve felt both confused and flattered? Ashamed and sexually empowered? Enraged and self-pitying?
