They vow to make it a day to remember…

The laugh-out-loud new novel from the bestselling author of Dial A For Aunties, winner of the Comedy Women In Print Prize 2021

‘Funny, razor-sharp and full of twists, this is a fantastic second novel from one of the funniest voices in fiction!’ My Weekly

It’s supposed to be the perfect day…
After getting away with literal murder, Meddy can’t wait to settle down and marry the love of her life, Nathan. She’s found the dress, got the dream venue at Christ Church College, Oxford, plus having a destination wedding comes with the added bonus of not having to invite her very large extended family.

…But is it even a wedding if nobody gets killed?
Although when her meddling aunties get involved, Meddy knows her wedding is going to be anything but quiet. Even though there’s no dead body hidden in the freezer this time, for better or worse, it’s certainly going to be a day she’s never going to forget…

Spoiler Alert! Before reading this book, I think you should read the first book of the aunties series Dial A For Aunties as the second book kind of follows the events that happened after that.

Maddie finally marries Nathan and Maddie along with her dramatic aunts and mother goes to England for the wedding. She hires a photographer named Stephanie and her family for the preparations. But Maddie finds out that Stephanie and her family belong to some “mafia” gang and is about to kill someone who will be attending the wedding. Now Maddie along with her aunts must stop the murder from happening before it’s too late.

I personally liked the audio version–the narrator does a very good job of narrating the story. And as usual, the story has so much funny moments that actually made me laugh out loud–Maddie and her aunts have a knacky way of making everyone laugh and the author actually did a good job with that! The kidnapping of the uncles, the way Maddie and her aunts argue, the aunts’ dresses all made a funny impression in a good way. The story felt like I was watching some Korean drama while reading the book. There were some exaggerating parts in the book that seemed too unrealistic but nonetheless it was enjoyable to read. The ending was predictable. But despite that, I kind of hope that there might be a third installment of the Meddy and her aunts!!

So if you like to read a good comedy, this book is one for you–worth four stars!
