Description

What should have been a family celebration of Chinese New Year descends into chaos when longtime foes crash the party in this hilariously entertaining novel by Jesse Q. Sutanto, bestselling author of Dial A for Aunties.
After an ultra-romantic honeymoon across Europe, Meddy Chan and her husband Nathan have landed in Jakarta to spend Chinese New Year with her entire extended family. Chinese New Year, already the biggest celebration of the Lunar calendar, gets even more festive when a former beau of Second Aunt’s shows up at the Chan residence bearing extravagant gifts—he’s determined to rekindle his romance with Second Aunt and the gifts are his way of announcing his courtship.
 
His grand gesture goes awry however, when it’s discovered that not all the gifts were meant for Second Aunt and the Chans—one particular gift was intended for a business rival to cement their alliance and included by accident. Of course the Aunties agree that it’s only right to return the gift—after all, anyone would forgive an honest mistake, right? But what should have been a simple retrieval turns disastrous and suddenly Meddy and the Aunties are helpless pawns in a decades-long war between Jakarta’s most powerful business factions. The fighting turns personal, however, when Nathan and the Aunties are endangered and it’s up to Meddy to come up with a plan to save them all.  Determined to rescue her loved ones, Meddy embarks on an impossible mission—but with the Aunties by her side, nothing is truly impossible…

What should have been a family celebration of Chinese New Year descends into chaos when longtime foes crash the party in this hilariously entertaining novel by Jesse Q. Sutanto, bestselling author of Dial A for Aunties.
After an ultra-romantic honeymoon across Europe, Meddy Chan and her husband Nathan have landed in Jakarta to spend Chinese New Year with her entire extended family. Chinese New Year, already the biggest celebration of the Lunar calendar, gets even more festive when a former beau of Second Aunt’s shows up at the Chan residence bearing extravagant gifts—he’s determined to rekindle his romance with Second Aunt and the gifts are his way of announcing his courtship.
 
His grand gesture goes awry however, when it’s discovered that not all the gifts were meant for Second Aunt and the Chans—one particular gift was intended for a business rival to cement their alliance and included by accident. Of course the Aunties agree that it’s only right to return the gift—after all, anyone would forgive an honest mistake, right? But what should have been a simple retrieval turns disastrous and suddenly Meddy and the Aunties are helpless pawns in a decades-long war between Jakarta’s most powerful business factions. The fighting turns personal, however, when Nathan and the Aunties are endangered and it’s up to Meddy to come up with a plan to save them all.  Determined to rescue her loved ones, Meddy embarks on an impossible mission—but with the Aunties by her side, nothing is truly impossible…

      • content: Risa Mei reprises her hilarious character performances in this third book of the Aunties trilogy. Meddy and her husband return from their honeymoon to spend Chinese New Year with her mother and aunties. A former suitor of Second Aunt brings extravagant gifts to the celebration, and, when an important red envelope goes to the wrong person, chaos ensues. As she did in the first two novels, Mei narrates with almost breathless enthusiasm, moving the riotous and wholly unbelievable events along at a whirlwind pace. It would be best to start at the beginning of the series (DIAL A FOR AUNTIES, 2021) to more thoroughly appreciate the family dynamics, as well as how Mei's authentic vocal characterizations add to the fun.

        Starred review from June 1, 2024

        Meddy's family takes their delicious drama to Jakarta for Chinese New Year. What begins with a declaration of love from Second Aunt's childhood boyfriend escalates to a hostage situation involving Meddy's husband. Soon after, the family finds themselves at the center of a business rival triangle involving theft, shady property deals, kidnapping, and far too many secrets. When they're finally pushed to their limit, Meddy's family must pull out all their wedding planning skills to infiltrate a crime lord's mansion. Narrator Risa Mei's comedic timing elevates Sutanto's (Four Weddings and a Wedding) already witty prose, providing ample opportunities to laugh aloud at the warm-hearted absurdity. She moves between American, Indonesian, and English accents with seeming ease, all while keeping the chaotic interruptions and squabbling of well-meaning aunties from overwhelming listeners. While the family can be incredibly silly, there are no limits to what they will do to keep each other safe--all while saving face. VERDICT Recommended for all libraries. Sutanto's third and final installment in the "Aunties" series will surely fill listeners with joy whether they're fans of the series or just getting started.--Matthew Galloway
