Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Q. Sutanto

 Release Date - April 27, 2021

Meddelin Chan's mother has done it this time. Meddy learns that her mother has been on dating sites posing as Meddy, and she's landed Meddy a supposed dream beau. Only, he turns out to be a demanding handsy guy, so Meddy protects herself by tazing him. Suddenly, Meddy is a killer.

It's time for Meddy to do the only thing she can think of. She calls her aunties and mom. They decide to help her get rid of the body and save the day. The problem is that they're in the middle of one of the biggest weddings they've planned, arranged, and catered, so the dead body is going to have to stay hidden until they can dispose of it. 

Unfortunately, the cooler where they've hidden the body is accidentally packed up and sent to the island where the wedding is being held, which makes it even harder to keep hidden. Worse, the love of Meddy's life is back in town and very interested in reconnecting. Nothing more could go wrong, right?

Dial A For Aunties is a comical story that has a touch of romance, a bit of mystery, and a whole lot of humor. I wasn't sure everyone would get the humor. I only did because I have a Japanese friend who will tell you his mother can be exactly like the aunties in this book - pushy and demanding yet incredibly loving and devoted.

Obviously, Meddy makes some horrible choices. Had she simply reported the accidental death when it first happened, the story wouldn't have existed. Yet, panic ensues and she makes all the wrong decisions. How it all plays out is up to the reader to find out.
