Weddings & Wasabi!
Jennifer Lim has always been a good Japanese daughter. But when an abusive ex-boyfriend shows up and her family expects her to just take it, Jenn finds the courage to stand up for herself. Armed with a culinary degree, her newfound freedom, her supportive cousins, and her handsome new friend, Edward, Jenn is determined to follow God's will for her life. Jenn's family members all seem to have their own plans for her life, but as confrontations happen, Jenn finds the strength to press forward to her dreams, her life, and maybe even love.
Weddings and Wasabi is the fourth installment in Camy Tang's Sushi series. The novella works well as a stand-alone and is a short, sweet read. I thought a few of the situations were unlikely, if not unbelieveable, but Jenn's character comes across as genuine. Jenn's search to find God's will was something that I could really relate to. I think more could have been done with some of the characters/situations. For instance, at one point Jenn begins to questions whether or not her ex-boyfriend pushed her or she fell while drunk. Unfortunately, that was never resolved and there are several other ambiguities throughout the story that leave the reader a little unfulfilled.
Overall, I recommend Weddings and Wasabi if you are looking for a light, sweet read to pass the time.

4th in Sushi series is perfect ending
Weddings and Wasabi by Camy Tang is the fourth and final book in the Sushi series about a series of Chinese-American cousins finding love. Jenn has always been the good cousin, the good girl in her family, willing to accept responsibility and take on any chore without a word of complaint. She just finished culinary school secretly hoping to start a restaurant of her own, but the whole family expects her to begin working at her aunt's restaurant. When she encounters an abusive ex-boyfriend at a party, and the family sides against her, Jenn has had enough of being their doormat, and then the fun begins. The Sushi series has been one of my all time favorite romance series, because Tang infuses her books with a deep sense of fun, along with romance, faith, and strong friendship. Each cousin is one that readers would love to know in real life. This book feels as though Tang decided to give readers the book they would love and allowed her joy of writing to cut loose. With hungry goats, a water-gun attack, and love at first sight, this is a perfect ending to a terrific series. My only complaint is that it had to end! I am a life-long fan of Tang's, and anyone who reads the Sushi series will be just as hooked.

Her Mom can't say "No" to anyone, and then Jenn ends up with a goat in her back yard. I love it!!! There are some serious issues, and a touch of romance. Enjoy traveling on a Motorcycle, squirt gun raids, and more!
