"What happens when you mix 1 (accidental) murder with 2 thousand wedding guests, and then, toss in a possible curse on 3 generations of an immigrant Chinese-Indonesian family? You get 4 meddling Asian aunties coming to the rescue! When Meddelin Chan ends up accidentally killing her blind date, her meddlesome mother calls for her even more meddlesome aunties to help get rid of the body. Unfortunately, a dead body proves to be a lot more challenging to dispose of than one might anticipate-especially when it is accidentally shipped in a cake cooler to the over-the-top billionaire wedding that Meddy, her Ma, and her aunties are working, at an island resort on the California coastline. It is the biggest job yet for their family wedding business-"Don't leave your big day to chance, leave it to the Chans!"-and nothing, not even an unsavory corpse, will get in the way of her aunties' perfect buttercream-cake flowers. But things go from inconvenient to downright torturous when Meddy's great college love-and biggest heartbreak-makes a surprise appearance amid the wedding chaos. Is it possible to escape murder charges, charm her ex back into her life, and pull off a stunning wedding, all in one weekend?"--… (més)

It took two tries to complete this book but on my second effort, I stuck to it and eventually I wondered how she was going to write her protagonist out of trouble. Meddelin Chan is a wedding photographer whose business is tied to her Mother and three aunts' wedding planning and organizing company. They specialize in Indonesian and Chinese weddings.

The aunts are determined to get Meddelin married and her mother even sets up a dating site on which the mother pretends to be Meddelin which leads to Meddelin killing an aggressive date by accident. The remainder of the novel is a comedy about hiding the body until the big wedding they are organizing is finished.

The plot stretches the reader's credibility but it is funny at times. Soon to be a Netflix production. ( )

This is a contemporary rom-com set in California, written by Indonesian author Jesse Q. Sutanto, with an inadvertent murder thrown in, lots of descriptions of Chinese Indonesian culture, and a heavy-handed dose of farcical humour.

Meddelin Chan reluctantly agrees to a blind date that her mother has arranged by posing as Meddy on a dating website. This ends badly with Meddy accidentally killing her date, then panicking and driving to the family home wondering what to do with the body. Her mother and four aunties instantly rally to her aid and hatch a plan to dispose of the body. Unfortunately wires get crossed and they end up trying to hide a body in the freezer and simultaneously run an expensive wedding on an island resort. Meddy unexpectedly runs into her ex, Nathan, during the wedding, creating dilemma and diversion.

On the positive side I could appreciate the love the family had for each other, but the comedy was far too slapstick and nonsensical for me. I can imagine it might make a funny movie, but despite the author’s forward saying she had attempted to treat the culture authentically rather than purvey stereotypes, she seems to do exactly that with many one-dimensional and superficial characters. I love reading books about other cultures but I really couldn’t face a sequel. ( )

Solid fun. I liked the Auntie heist more than the romance. ( )

I love this book. It was was really funny and the shenanigans were great and the surprise twist at the end was genuinely good. Great for anyone who wants something that's funny and cute and also involves murder. ( )

I wanted to like this. It came highly recommended. But I could not root for Meddy and her boring love story (so cliche) and her ridiculous get-away-with-murder plot (so ridiculous). ( )
