Happy Wednesday reader friends! Today’s book review is of Weddings and Wasabi by Camy Tang.
ABOUT THIS BOOK
After finally graduating with a culinary degree, Jennifer Lim is pressured by her family to work at her control-freak aunty’s restaurant. But after a family dispute, Jenn is determined to no longer be a doormat and instead starts her own catering company. Her search for a wine merchant brings Edward Castillo into her life–a tall, dark, handsome biker in form-fitting black leather, who’s Hispanic to boot. It would be wonderfully wild to snag a man like that!
Shy engineer Edward tentatively tries out his birthday present from his winery-owner uncle–a Harley-Davidson complete with the trimmings. Jennifer seems attracted to the rough, aggressive image, but it isn’t his real self. Is she latching onto him just to spite her horrified family? And if this spark between them is real, will showing her the true guy underneath put it out?
And what’s with the goat in the backyard?
Camy drew me straight into the story as soon as I read the first line in Weddings and Wasabi. It is a fun read involving a goat, a crazy family, a water gun attack, romance, and more. Jenn has graduated with a culinary degree and decides to start her own catering company instead of working at her aunt’s restaurant. I enjoyed how Jenn decided she had enough of being a doormat and being bullied and how she started becoming independent and pursuing her dreams.

She graduated from Stanford University in psychology with a focus on biology, but for nine years she worked as a biologist researcher.
