Angels by Marian Keyes is the third of the Walsh Sister books. Maggie, the normal, boring sister, finds her husband, Garv, having an affair. Stressed out by that fact she loses her job and decides she needs to get as far away as possible. She settles on Los Angeles.
Emily, her best friend and a screenwriter, takes Maggie in as she tries to take stock of her life. Mixed in with her and Emily's misadventures in Los Angeles, are flashbacks that slowly reveal the reasons behind the affair as well as other things worrying Maggie.
There's nothing too surprising in the plot. There are certainly some hilarious moments as well as some heartbreaking ones. Maggie, for instance, had gone through two miscarriages — something I share with her.
It was a decent read, good for reading on my commute. I could read it in snatches of five or ten pages and still follow the story.
