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?
This was hilarious. I know all about aunties from my friends’ families, the meddling, the gossip, the one up man ship that goes on, and the fact that even though they seem to criticise everything you do, they love you completely.
Meddy’s aunts would literally kill for her, or at least hide the body. The family’s wedding business provides cover as they work at a very fancy celebration on a small island. Chaos ensues, as Meddy tries to stop anyone else finding out about the dead body her mum and aunts are lugging about in a cooler.
I loved this, I want more crazy auntie shenanigans!!
