Summary

The international best seller.

Like all good Chinese children, Andrea Tang is doing her best to fulfil all her mother’s plans for her life: she’s on track to become partner at a top law firm in Singapore, she has a beautiful apartment in the right postcode and a perfect boyfriend who is practically made of husband material.

Except that those plans are unravelling fast: there’s an unfairly attractive new lawyer out to steal her promotion, she has credit-card debt up to her eyeballs, her perfect boyfriend is now her perfect ex-boyfriend and the last single cousin in her family just got engaged, leaving her exposed to romantic meddling on all sides....

For fans of Crazy Rich Asians and Bridget Jones’s Diary comes a hilarious story of love, friendship and the most intrusive people in the world: family.

Smart and funny and sexy

A refreshing take on Bridget Jones’s Diary. So smart and funny and the protagonist is super relatable and you root for her from the beginning! I also got to glimpse some part of local Chinese diasporic culture which was precious. Great supporting cast of friends and realistic workplace pressures make this a wonderful introduction to an exciting new voice!

Excellent

I totally enjoyed this novel. It was modern, engaging, descriptive and I hated for it to end. I also very much enjoyed the narrator. Can’t wait for another novel by this author.
