Dial A for Aunties

Bookseller Recommendation

If you enjoyed The Kiss Quotient, then you’ll love Dial A for Aunties.

“This book absolutely delighted and surprised me. I picked it up in a reading slump, having seen it recommended as a mystery/thrilleresque new novel. While it certainly fits in that category, Sutanto has melded together an entire genre of her own with this one... a telenovela/soap opera/mystery/thriller/romantic comedy/farce hybrid that has you eye-rolling, guffawing, snorting, and gasping along with Meddy and her Aunties and their HIJINKS!! This book is stupid good. It's so silly that part of you is questioning it the whole time and yet you are so on board, you cannot stop reading. Not only is the plot crazy and compulsively readable, but Sutanto also delves into Indo-Chinese-American culture in such a careful and respectful way as if she is portraying her own family. There is broken English and mixed Indo and Mandarin and fierce familial bonds. The wedding being portrayed is also from the Indo-Chinese-American culture so you get to learn about the different ceremonies and traditions. I feel like this was Broadway's The Play That Goes Wrong meets Jane the Virgin meets Crazy Rich Asians and is perfect for those who want a highly absorbing yet easy read with romantic elements.”

Description

"Sutanto brilliantly infuses comedy and culture into the unpredictable rom-com/murder mystery mashup as Meddy navigates familial duty, possible arrest and a groomzilla. I laughed out loud and you will too.”—USA Today (four-star review)

“A hilarious, heartfelt romp of a novel about—what else?—accidental murder and the bond of family. This book had me laughing aloud within its first five pages… Utterly clever, deeply funny, and altogether charming, this book is sure to be one of the best of the year!”—Emily Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read

One of PopSugar’s "42 Books Everyone Will Be Talking About in 2021"!


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 inadvertently shipped in a cake cooler to the over-the-top billionaire wedding Meddy, her Ma, and aunties are working at an island resort on the California coastline. It's the biggest job yet for the 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 auntie's perfect buttercream 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?
