Series Sunday: Four Aunties and a Wedding

(Aunties #2) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is Four Aunties and a Wedding, the second book in the Aunties series by Jesse Q. Sutanto. So not only do we have four aunties but three uncles too! They're back and ready to handle the mafia during Meddy's wedding. Uh oh!

Meddy has been to countless weddings as the photographer but never the bride. Now she is the center of attention and marrying her college sweetie, Nathan. Instead of Meddy's mom and aunties catering the wedding, they are enjoying the day as guests in standout purple dresses and all the flair. 

As a compromise, they hire a Chinese-Indonesian family-run company that runs like their business. What's a wedding without a charade? Meddy overhears a phone conversation of The Family's plans to take out a target. The day turns into preventing a murder scene and taking down the mafia.

"You'd be surprised at the atrocities old women are capable of." ~ 76%

Four Aunties and a Wedding quickly went from entertaining to ridiculously funny. If you're looking for a funny read with a storyline that would probably never happen in real life, then read this! It is a bit on the silly side and not much of a mystery. Certainly a book I had to be in the mood to read. 

Happy Early Pub Day, Jesse Q. Sutanto! Four Aunties and a Wedding will be available Tuesday, March 29.
