About Four Aunties and a Wedding

FOUR AUNTIES AND A WEDDING by Jesse Q. Sutanto is a sequel to 2021’s Dial A for Aunties. This time instead of the family planning someone else’s wedding, it’s Meddy and Nathan’s day in the spotlight. And the aunties think they’ve found the perfect planning family to oversee the wedding. But nothing can be that easy for the Chan clan, can it?

My thoughts about Four Aunties and a Wedding

This fun, fast-paced, humorous novel keeps the whimsy of the first book and absolutely amps up the caper vibes. Great to see that Meddy and the aunties’ actions of the first book have (hilarious) consequences in the second.

Based on the author’s own experiences, Four Aunties and a Wedding looks at the different experiences people of the Asian diaspora have and how that affects their children. Meddy realizes that while her mom and aunts might seem eccentric or even embarrassing, they love her and will do anything, even commit a crime while wearing Komodo dragon fascinators, to keep her safe and her wedding on.

Final thoughts

This book is perfect if you’re looking for a whimsical caper involving family dynamics with a bit of light romance.

Perfect for fans of Lillie Vale, Jackie Lau, or Julie Tieu.

Thank you Berkley for the ARC.
