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.

Review 2 for Weddings and Wasabi - eBook
Date:January 4, 2012
This book is the long-awaited ending to the Sushi for One series. Very enjoyable read.
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.

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.
What an enjoyable very fast read...only 104 pages. Be ready for some great laughs! Jenn has grown up to respect her elders and after graduating from Culinary School, her Aunty expects her to run her restaurant. 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!
I received this book from the author, and was not required to give a positive review.
Wow . . . I loved Weddings and Wasabi! Jenn is trying to figure out who she is learn to stand on her own two fit. She walks the fine line of offending her traditional, Asian family or continuing to be a doormat that everyone manipulates at will. Jenn is a character that I think many readers will identify with. Her relationship with her cousins is unique and the rest of her family is a great mix of funny and crazy and annoying! Edward is . . . dreamy . . . and I loved his relationship with Jenn!
I was a little nervous about jumping into the fourth (and final) book of The Sushi Series without having read the first three, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that this novella stands completely on its own. I can't wait to go back and read the first three books in the series. If they're anything like this one, I know I'll love them.
Camy Tang, I'm a fan! Can't wait to see what's next!
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my fair and honest review.
