Publisher's Summary

The aunties are back, fiercer than ever and ready to handle any catastrophe - even the mafia - in this delightful and hilarious sequel by Jesse Q. Sutanto, author of Dial A for Aunties.

Meddy Chan has been to countless weddings, but she never imagined how her own would turn out. Now the day has arrived, and she can't wait to marry her college sweetheart, Nathan. Instead of having Ma and the aunts cater to her wedding, Meddy wants them to enjoy the day as guests. As a compromise, they find the perfect wedding vendors: a Chinese Indonesian family-run company just like theirs. Meddy is hesitant at first, but she hits it off right away with the wedding photographer, Staphanie, who reminds Meddy of herself, down to the unfortunately misspelled name.

Meddy realizes that is where their similarities end, however, when she overhears Staphanie talking about taking out a target. Horrified, Meddy can't believe Staphanie and her family aren’t just like her own, they are The Family - actual mafia, and they're using Meddy's wedding as a chance to conduct shady business. Her aunties and mother won’t let Meddy’s wedding ceremony become a murder scene - over their dead bodies - and will do whatever it takes to save her special day, even if it means taking on the mafia.

Setting ruins it

The story and delightful hijinks were undercut by the setting of Meddy’s wedding. For a bride to be MIA for almost the entirety of the wedding coupled with the dont-let-Nathan-find-out plot device was too much to overlook. I hate when the main problem in the story is something that capsule be solved with a simple, honest conversation. It would have been much more enjoyable if the sequel let Nathan really be a part of the family instead of waiting on hold until it was convenient to bring him back into the plot. It was a sequel not worthy of its predecessor.

Great sequel!

I absolutely loved the first book, Dial A for Aunties, and thought this was a clever and entertaining sequel. Light hearted, makes you laugh, and an easy read. Hope Jesse keeps writing more of these!

Almost as good as the first one

I took a chance on the first book "Dial A for Auntie" and I ended up loving it. It was light, and funny, and relatable ( who doesn't have crazy family stories?) and at the time, it was a nice break from my usual genre of serious historical fiction. I needed the same change of pace when this book came out - and I looked forward to another adventure with the Aunties. You have to know going in, reading this book and the first one, that the story is a bit far fetched - but you have to just let your mind go with it. Sort of like watching old sitcoms - you know what is happening is impossible - but it is funny, so you go along with it. If you go into this looking for a serious crime novel - well, you bought the wrong book. The characters were outrageously funny, and one bad decision snowballs into another, into another - with the Aunties coming up with radical solutions to all of their problems. Hysterical! My only, very minor complaint (the reason for 4 Stars instead of 5) is that Medi took way too long to loop her fiancé in to what was going on. I could accept many of the other far fetched scenarios - but Nathan in the real world would have either called off the wedding or at least demanded to know what was going on - but he doesn't get looped in until the end - and that was a bit too far fetched for me. Overall I enjoyed it, the narration is great, the story is funny and cute - definitely worth a credit - just as long as you know what you are buying - sit back and let yourself enjoy it, rather than trying to convince yourself that the story line is improbable. Looking forward to the next book - as the ending definitely set up for another story to be told!

It's too much

I enjoyed the first book. The action and plot were over the top but it was fun and I enjoyed it. This sequel was also over the top but in a hard-to-accept way. The heroine behaves in a silly and unbelievable way. After succeeding in the previous novel by confiding in her fiancee, she never trusts him in this story and I just didn't buy it. Based on what she and the aunts are willing to do which puts them all at risk, the risk of telling her fiancee/husband makes no sense. Of course, she cannot tell him because if she did there would be no story.

The good news is that the narration is very nice and there are many funny bits. The aunties' hats are hilarious.

Big Let Down

I could hardly wait for the sequel after reading "Dial A for Aunties" in record time. "Four Aunties and a Wedding" was a tremendous letdown. Book 1 was cutting edge funny. Sure it was full of over-the-top, hard-to-believe situations. But these crazy situations added to the humor. "Four Aunties" was almost humorless. Situations were concocted that fell so far short of the humor mark. I could barely finish the book. Author Jesse Sutanto was trying too hard, and the reading of "Four Aunties" suffered.

Hoping for another Auntie novel

For some reason, I couldn't get into the beginning of this book in the series, but so glad I kept going.
I truly laughed out loud quite a few times and I just love the antics of the Aunties.
I will listen again because I may have been distracted at the start.
This is a fun listen.

The Best Sequel!

I love this book! I'm so sad that it's over. I am going to miss Meddy and her loveable Aunties so much! The performance was amazing! The story was so well written. It was just an overall great read all around.
