Sushi Series Book 4
Weddings and Wasabi By Camy Tang
Sushi Series Book 4
Jennifer Lim, the quiet cousin. The cousin who does what she can to keep peace. Until now. Jenn has snapped and no one is going to walk over her again. She's learning to say no to the overwhelming aunty's. And she would like to say yes to the dangerous Harley riding Edward Castillo.
This is the final book in the series. A little shorter than the previous books. It ties a few things together that have been mentioned previously. Once again Camy Tang has some pretty serious issues in the book but also lines it with humor, like a goat in the backyard. As with a good series it's always a bit sad to finish the final book and say good-bye to the characters that have come to life.
Four cousins out of a large family have become Christians. The books are about their struggles within the family and in their own personal walk with God. The series starts with Sushi for One? and then book 1.1 The Sushi Toss, which is a short, free read on Camy Tang's blog. Book two is Trish's tale in Only Uni and book three is Venus' story in Single Sashimi. A unique series worth reading.

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.
