Hard work and determination helped Venus Chau shed her excess pounds and transformed her into a woman of beauty. Yet in her heart she harbours the pain of rejection and dismissal she experienced for all those years before.
When Drake Yu, the man who humiliated her in the past, asks her to join his sister’s gaming company, Venus is adamant in her refusal until she is passed over for a promotion and her Grandma makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
Forced together, Venus can see a change in Drake’s behaviour but her inner fear and anger still dominates her response to him. She feels somewhat resigned to being the cousin who fails Grandma’s mandate to marry and reproduce!
Camy Tang’s feisty and colourful cousins are back in the third Sushi Series instalment as they encourage and annoy each other as good friends do. Camy doesn’t do shy and retiring so Venus is full of spark and contentiousness as she makes her mark in her career and relationships. No doubt drawing on her own experience as a Youth Group leader, Camy drops the career minded Venus and solitary businessman Drake as volunteers with the local church youth group, providing plenty of laughs and moments of tenderness. While I would have enjoyed more interaction between Venus and Drake, Single Sashimi is a fun and sassy read that will satisfy Camy’s growing legion of fans!
